End of life: Windows 10 Ends October 14, 2025
Why is Microsoft ending support? What does that mean?
Microsoft officially will end product support for Windows 10 Oct 14, 2025. Microsoft will not be providing any security updates or technical support after that point. That means these products in time hackers will find ways to hack into them and without updates these holes will not be closed as in the past with updates. In other words if you are on the internet with a Windows 10 machine users and their data will be susceptible to computer hackers and a higher rate of virus’s and malware.
Microsoft goal is to move customers to more modern software and focus their programmer’s attention on providing higher security, more productivity, and a lower cost of ownership through the synergy of improved software. Migration to current software will allow users and their data to receive security updates to protect their data from malicious attacks.
