Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows 10 by 2025. The company has formally set an end of life date for Windows 10 Home and Pro, as they hinted at Windows 11 this week.
According to Microsoft’s website, support will stop on October 14th, 2025. Until that day, Microsoft will support at least one Windows 10 semi-annual channel. Only Home and Pro are mentioned in the document, although a banner on the website states that it also applies to Pro Education and Pro for Workstations.
If this is true, it indicates that by 2025, Windows 10 will no longer get any development or security updates. There has been no mention of Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows Server releases based on Windows 10 (such as Server 2016 and Server 2019), although given their popularity in the enterprise and prosumer sectors, these versions are likely to have longer lifespans.
This clearly suggests that a new version of Windows is on the way. On June 24, the company will host an event discussing the operating system’s future. While Microsoft originally stated that Windows 10 would be the final version of Windows, all signs point to Windows 11, including a number of hints from Microsoft themselves.
