As someone whose work environment is still Windows 7, I'd prefer it if it were a soft desupport (i.e., we require users to manually ensure that the KB fix is installed, but we don't do anything specific to refuse to install Python on Win7).

I'd rather not drop Win7 support in 3.8 completely - I feel like that's a bit too aggressive, as Eryk says, there's still a *lot* of Windows 7 usage.
