Small note on the phones deal: even if they want to update, due to the fragmented android system and the idiotic decision to leave it to cell service providers to certify updates (due to verifying compatibility with networks), it often is not up to the user whether they can update their systems unless they go through the process of loading a custom boot loader and flash a custom room incorporating the most recent security updates.So using work programs does not make you an expert at Windows but using social media apps makes you a power user of mobile OS's? That kind of contradicts itself... Using social media and spending your time 24/7 glued to your phone is about the farthest qualifier for being an Android or iOS "super user".
If you cannot mount "/" you are definitively not an Android superuser. See how many people pick up on that one...
I'm curious to see what happens with Win 7 EOL which is scheduled within a year. Enterprise use is still scheduled for another three years after that, will there be some unofficial patch/port of the enterprise updates that home users will be able to use to keep the OS updated?
Is 7 going to go down the XP path where everyone declares that they will ride it out forever and then bails or will it actually have forever hold outs? I'm tempted to believe most people will eventually crack like they did with XP, running an out of date OS is a good way to get owned (then again most people do exactly just this with their Android smartphones) but things might the different this time around.
It goes beyond that to the IoT devices as well. We practically have no security, and funny enough, 5G will only make that worse.
