PEP 11 says that "[a] new feature release X.Y.0 will support all Windows releases whose extended support phase is not yet expired". There was no such thing as Extended Security Updates (ESU) when that provision was accepted. As defined by PEP 11, extended support for Windows 7 ended on 2020-01-14.

IMO, Windows 7 is either supported or it's not. If it's not, then workarounds and fallback code for Windows 7 should be removed.
