January 14, 2020, is when Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7, meaning those who don’t upgrade to a newer version will stop receiving security updates from Microsoft. And if you do the math we are just seven months away from the end of support of Microsoft’s almost a decade old operating system, Windows 7.

The end of support of Windows 7 is making the South Korean Government migrate to Linux and not Microsoft’s newer operating systems Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows 10. South Korea Government, however, didn’t explain as to why they chose to ditch Microsoft’s operating systems.

The country’s Interior Ministry is all set to test-run Linux on its PCs, and if all goes well,  Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government(via TR).

A report from the Korean Herald  stated, “Before the government-wide adoption, the ministry said it would test if the system could be run on private networked devices without security risks and if compatibility could be achieved with existing websites and software which have been built to run on Windows.”

It is not exactly clear which Linux distribution the South Korean Government are eyeing.
