With 0patch in place, can I stop applying official Windows 7 or Server 2008 updates before January 2020?

No! Post-end-of-support micropatches will only work on fully-updated Window 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 so you need to keep applying all official updates as long as they are available (including January 2020). We also recommend not disabling Windows Updates afterwards as it may happen that Microsoft will issue an occasional update for unsupported systems as they did with BlueKeep and this WebDAV remote code execution vulnerability. In case that happens, you will be advised to apply their official update but we may also issue a micropatch for those who can't.
