Wasn't Windows 7 supposed to "die" on Jan 14 2020?

My windows 7 PC is still getting security updates just fine and it's feb 18 2020.

What's going on? Was Microsoft just bluffing?

You have given very good information, Microsoft rolls out new Edge to Windows 7 via Windows Update.

It's now mere weeks until Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft.The end date for support has been reached, and Microsoft is keen for people to upgrade to Windows 10 to avoid having insecure computers that don't receive updates.

But not all security updates are being dropped. Having previously said that Microsoft Security Essentials would no longer receive updates when Windows 7 support ends, the company has indicated that updates will in fact continue to be released.
