If you are a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air fan, you should know that there is no way that you could run Windows 7 on the latest versions of the devices. There will be no Boot Camp support for the OS for the latest MacBooks. The best Windows bet for Apple’s laptops will be a Windows 8-plus upgrade.
The Boot Camp allows Mac users to switch to Windows. Apparently, Apple understands that there are many Mac users who would prefer Microsoft’s OS rather than its own OS X. There are users that still love to play with Windows on their Apple devices despite having limited programs to use.
Those who have Windows 7 could rely on other operating systems that will easily work on their MacBooks. For example, you could use VMware Fusion 7 Pro and Parallels Desktop 7 with all the Windows versions up to XP. They can also be used with Apple’s OS X versions.

There are speculations that not enabling Windows 7 in the Boot Camp can turn down the interests of many MacBook users. The popularity of Windows 7 can be judged from the fact that currently it is the most widely used operating system. Apple followed a similar pattern with its 2013 MacBook Pro and caused a stir with its users.
Apple currently has the 5th largest PC market share in the world. Any move to cut back on Boot Camp support for the most popular OS will have at least some impact on its own popularity. In the US, Apple’s PC market share, only for Mac systems, has put it in the 3rd place.
