Unlike what the sensationalist title of this thread suggests, Windows 7 will work on new hardware for years to come. AFAIK, MS isn't physically locking anyone out. You just won't get the same updates as those on Windows 10. So, those on 7/8.1 on new hardware may not be able to use features of that new hardware compared to Windows 10 users.
