End of support means no more updates or security fixes for your operating system, leaving it more vulnerable to attack.
Says Microsoft: "Every Windows product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it's no longer supported or sold. Knowing key dates in this lifecycle helps you make informed decisions about when to upgrade or make other changes to your software."
Windows 7 with SP1 loses support in February 2015, but you can pay for extended support (including security fixes) until 2020.
