  • Microsoft to start pushing Win10 1809 customers onto 1909

    Nevermind that Win10 1809 Home and Pro don’t officially hit end of service until May of next year…

    Microsoft just announced that it’s starting to push machines from Win10 1809 to version 1909.

    Current status as of December 5, 2019:

    Beginning today, we will slowly start the phased process to automatically initiate a feature update for devices running the October 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1809) Home and Pro editions, keeping those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health. We are starting this rollout process several months in advance of the end of service date to provide adequate time for a smooth update process.

    I can understand a month, or maybe two. But five?

    No indication how the push will proceed. I guess you wake up one morning to find that your 1809 machine wants to reboot into 1909.

    As a service.
