Now word is going around that support for the current version of Windows will end on October 14, 2025. ExtremeTech reports Microsoft has updated its official documentation to reflect Windows 10's end-of-life (EOL) date.
If we assume Microsoft launches Windows 11 by November (an arbitrary date), it will mean Windows 10 lived a few hundred days longer than Windows XP did relative to Vista. It was always obvious that Microsoft would launch a new Windows, just like Google and Apple continue to release new versions of their products with updated code names and numbers. This is how software development has worked for literally decades, and Microsoft wasn’t going to buck that trend.The first version of Windows 10 was released on July 29, 2015. At the time, Microsoft branded Windows 10 as the final version of Windows.
