When Does Support For Windows OS End?

"Every Windows product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it's no longer supported. Knowing key dates in this lifecycle helps you make informed decisions about when to update, upgrade or make other changes to your software."

For the quote above and for more details on other versions, check out this link. ( Windows Lifecyle Fact Sheet )

Microsoft takes into account some of the other versions. But the leave out others such as, Dell's & HP's OEM's and other manufactures versions. I found this to be very common with Windows 7.

If you looked at my earlier post about MS Windows 10 being to new. This post does not takes into account the later versions such as #1803, of which I am very comfortable in recommending. Just as XP SP3 was the best for its day.

Client Operating Systems Latest Update or Service Pack End of Mainstream Support End of Extended Support My Preferances
Windows XP Service Pack 3 April 14, 2009 April 3, 2014 YES
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 April 10, 2012 April 11, 2017 NO!
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 January 12, 2015 January 14, 2020 Yes
Windows 8 Windows 8.1 January 9, 2018 January 10, 2023 NO!
Windows 10
Released in July 2015
N/A May 9, 2017 October 14, 2020 No
Windows 10 Version 1803 November 12, 2019 October 13, 2026 Now Yes

In my preferances, you can see a pattern. If they come out with something above a Windows 10, it will most likely be a bad version. The last on is "Now Yes", however I do have concerns for people with low or limited broadband speeds.
