Windows 10: Microsoft will provide extended support until 2025
Waiting Windows 10 is on its last legs, so Microsoft’s lawyers are working to clarify the last bureaucratic details. Yesterday the company announced support of its new operating system.
With the latest update of the official page, containing a statement of the time within which the Corporation maintains its operating systems, there is information about how long Microsoft will support Windows 10. More specifically:
- Mainstream support will last from July 29, 2015 until October 13, 2020
- Extended support will begin October 13, 2020 and will be available until October 14, 2025
Of no less interest and notes that illustrates additional details of the operating system upgrade:
- Updates are cumulative, i.e., each update will include all previous updates.
- To obtain support required install all updates.
- The updates may include new features, patches (security or otherwise), or a combination of both types.
- Not all updates will be applicable to all devices. The device might not support the update because of hardware incompatibility, lack of updated drivers or support from the manufacturer.
- The availability of updates may vary depending on the country, region or network connection.
Remember that in the period of mainstream support, Microsoft releases updates features, implementing new functionality and fixes all sorts of problems that can jeopardize the security of the system. However, during extended support, the company produces only security fixes.
