No more support for Windows 10

Well, after a long and, lets say, admirable run, Windows 10 will finally get to hang up its gloves and go on a much needed vacation.

According to Microsoft, Windows 10 will officially reach the end of support on October 14, 2025.

Understandable, seeing how when the company first announced Windows 10 in 2015, they mentioned that it will surely be the last version of Windows.

No more support for Windows 10 starting with 2025

Judging by the information available on the lifecycle page, Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025.

We are talking about the Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Educations versions, suggesting a clear fact, which is that time for the OS is slowly running out.

What this means is that after October 14, 2025, devices running the Windows 10 OS will no longer receive security and quality updates, and users will no longer be able to contact the company for support.

And even though there’s a long way to go before the operating system reaches the end of service, Windows 10 will be replaced until then with a newer version which might not be called Windows after all.

Microsoft is already preparing a brand new OS

There’s no reason to be sad about this news or get stuck on the past and never get used to anything other than what we are used to.

Based on recent data concerning the new operating system that Microsoft is about to announce on the 24th of June, the future is looking bright for the company.

All we can do now is hope for the better and embrace the new, as this is how we, mankind, evolved in the first place. By trying new things and constantly striving to overachieve.

If we think about it, this makes sense, because the end of service for Windows 10 means there is time to release additional feature updates, which suggests that Microsoft may not be planning to force users into the new version immediately.

Instead, we may actually have the choice to keep our current setups until we are ready to transition to the new version.

All in all, many say that this change was long overdue and are eager to embrace new possibilities, face new challenges and be once again pleased be the feel of that brand new software.
