The Windows 7 operating system - Professional and Enterprise
The comparatively oldest version of our offer concerns the 7. Why does this version represent a special landmark of operating systems? The reason for this is not only the excellent possibilities, but also the regained trust in Microsoft. The predecessor Vista was error-prone and not sophisticated enough to convince the mass of users. For this reason, quite a few PC users with a Windows operating system have trusted the previous version XP. With Windows 7, Windows has been reopened for all user groups and apart from the home versions, the two versions we offer are particularly exciting for business users.
Windows 7 Professional is the operating system for medium and small businesses and also benefits individual users with previous knowledge or enthusiastic gamers. The maximum RAM is 192 GB and Windows Server Domains are additionally supported. Depending on the purpose, the version is also suitable because programs that no longer run under v7 can also be started in XP mode.
The licensed Enterprise version is very similar to the Professional version and is primarily sold to organizations and companies with a so-called volume license. Windows 7 is still supported by the manufacturer as an operating system and remains protected with regard to security risks. Due to a ten-year commitment, support will therefore end towards the end of 2019 and will finally be discontinued on 14 January 2020.
