  • The new Windows lifecycle fact sheet

    Posted on September 7th, 2018 at 10:03 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft just posted a FAQ that covers the latest Windows expiration date shenanigans.

    Translator:

    • “Feature update” = new version.
    • “Service” = gets security patches.
    • “Upon availability” = when our telemetry says your machine should be able to handle it.
    • “March” = April.
    • “September” = October.
    • “Home” = No guaranteed way to block version changes.

    Any other questions?
