How long will official support for Windows 7 continue?

The conflicting information is due to there being two different support deadlines, as PCWorld explains:

 

Microsoft will stop mainstream support on January 12, 2015. But the company will keep providing extended support until January 14, 2020.

 

Basically this means you'll get complete support through the first date above. After that and until the latter date, you'll get free security updates and not much else -- unless you want to pay for a subscription.
