Microsoft Announces 10-Year Support for Windows 10!

On July 17, Microsoft updated the Windows support lifecycle fact sheet to guarantee support for the upcoming OS, Windows 10, for up to 10 years. This decade of support will be offered to all stock-keeping units (the different editions of the operating system), including Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.

Windows 10 Business

Windows 10 will be available to consumers on July 29, and is to include many state-of-the-art features and services:

  1. The operating system will boast the “traditional decade” of support.

Microsoft 10 will be given five years of “mainstream” support until October 13, 2020, and five more years of “extended” support until October 13, 2025.

  1. Updates to the system will be continually applied at regular intervals.

Windows 10’s user interface and user experience will be regularly improved via updates to ensure a high quality and up-to-date product long after launch. This is in line with Microsoft’s goal of making Windows 10 “a service”, as compared to previous operating systems, which had infrequent updates after launch.

  1. Updates to Windows 10 will be comprehensive.

The regular improvements will frequently include both new features and fixes (security and otherwise) as needed, and will build upon previous updates to maintain the quality for current users.

  1. Windows 10 will have unique security measures.

Last month, head of the Windows group Terry Myerson wrote in a blog post that, “Windows 10 provides the most secure platform ever, including Windows Defender for free anti-malware protection, and being the only platform with a commitment to deliver free ongoing security updates for the supported lifetime of the device.”

I first hired John directly as an employee back in 1999.
He was an excellent addition to a growing team at a small technology company. Subsequent to the sale of the company, John branched out on his own and started an IT consulting firm. Since that time, I have not used anyone else. John is capable, personable, has integrity and is also very likable. I would recommend him without reservation.”
