Home » Microsoft ending support for original Windows 10 release in May

Microsoft’s Windows 10 has been out for quite a while now with multiple versions of the operating system currently available and running on computers across the globe. Recently, Microsoft announced that the original version of its premier operating system would soon reach the end of its support period. This means only the Anniversary Edition out and upcoming Creators Update will be eligible for support going forward.

All this was originally scheduled to happen on the 26th of March, but Microsoft went online to say that the original version Windows 10 will continue to receive support until May, which means people that haven’t updated yet have one more month to do so.

Updated versions

One thing to keep in mind is that Microsoft has been very adamant about delivering the latest version of the software to its users, meaning that most people using Microsoft Windows are now up to date and have nothing to fear from the upcoming support termination. Although we now know that support will be terminated in May, Microsoft didn’t go as far as to tell us when exactly in May it would happen.

UPDATE: 2/3/2017: End of servicing for Windows 10, version 1507 will now occur in May. […]

With the availability of Windows 10, version 1607 to the VLSC on January 26th, the grace period for Windows 10, version 1507 will begin. That means, after May 2017, Windows 10, version 1507 will no longer be serviced as only the two most Current Branch for Business (CBB) versions are actively serviced.

Microsoft stated long ago that it intends to make Windows 10 the last version of Windows ever released. There will be no Windows 11 or 12 but instead a steady stream of updates of both small and large. This will keep the OS ecosystem steady and will allow both the developer and user to make full use of the all the OS’ features.
