Still, after windows 7 officially ended its service there are many users who still use Windows 7 for one reason or another.

Why people and enterprises not upgrading to the latest versions of windows?

The answer is quite simple because we all know that windows 7 is quite stable than the latest versions of the windows. Further, for enterprise users, the problem comes when they have to invest a lot to upgrade a huge number of PCs and laptops to the latest version. For example, the government of Germany failed to upgrade its systems to the latest versions and hence in order to ensure security of systems now they have to pay a huge sum.
