Microsoft made 'em do it: The latest Kaby Lake, Zen chips will support only Windows 10

Snippet -

Microsoft is slamming the door on PC builders and upgraders who might have hoped to use the new Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Zen chips for Windows 7 or Windows 8 PCs. Sorry: Both chips are officially supported only by Microsoft’s Windows 10.

Microsoft's mandate is discreet rather than secret. In January, the company tried to shorten its support lifecycle for Intel Skylake PCs running Windows 7 and 8, a policy the company subsequently abandoned after much outcry. But Microsoft’s statements have also consistently included a critical caveat: The latest generations of silicon—specifically Intel’s Kaby Lake chip, Qualcomm’s 8996, and AMD’s Bristol Ridge silicon—will all require Windows 10.

kinda ticked off over this but AMD is probably being forced into this due to intel and microsoft's love affair. if zen is as good as it looks it wont take long for the hackers to fix it so the cpu will work on 7/8.1. and you know the Linux people will find their own way around this.
