If you buy from one of those sites and get a counterfeit/bad license key, I don't believe Microsoft will ban you from buying from their store.

I believe the worst that will happen is that either Windows will not activate when you install it or it might activate but then latter flag as 'not genuine Windows"...and the end result is that you likely will have to buy Windows again if it is in fact a counterfeit key.

This is why I tend to buy Windows from a trusted source such as Newegg or Amazon (but with the seller being Amazon.com not some other seller on Amazon).

  1. Windows 7, released on October 22, 2009; 6+ years ago
  2. Mainstream support ended on January 13, 2015
  3. Extended support ends on January 14, 2020
  4. Would it not be wiser to buy something newer?

Depending on the situation, no. We have Win 10 machines here and compared with 7, they are a big hassle. Notably, the update policies. We perform tests over the weekend and sometimes over several week days. Windows insisting on updating at least once a week can interfere with our tests and make us lose days of work.

 

If Windows 10 let you do updates whenever you felt like it, it would not be a problem. I have no problem updating, I just want to be able to schedule it accordingly. At the moment, Win 10 creates much more work for me.

If You need for six months only, then why to buy, if there is so much different methods to activate, some of them are also absolutely legal?

At the same time, a great number dealers do not sell genuine keys. Especially caution should be with these sellers who sell very cheaply.
