Windows 10 has been around for so long that it is almost unthinkable for us to have another operating system on our computer. Now it looks like “Next Generation Windows” Windows 11 is around the corner.
Recently, Microsoft has confirmed that support for Windows 10 will end on October 14, 2025. The decision covers the Home and Pro versions of the operating system.
Windows 10 was released in 2015, and the end of support comes when the system turns 10 years old. So, on the one hand, this means that Microsoft is sustaining its ten-year support cycle, as has happened with previous editions. On the other hand, it is possible that this modification reflects the future of the platform after the announcement on June 24.
With this movement, Microsoft shuts the rumours that Windows 10 would be the last operating system of the firm. Inevitably, the fact that Windows 10 has its days ‘numbered’ implies that there has to be an operating system to succeed it.
While it is true that it is not known when the support document was updated, the fact that it was updated days before the event that will unveil the “the biggest Windows update in the last decade” should be an indication that Microsoft is already planning to take a leap further.
