Citizen, You Have 35 Days To Comply!
Windows 10 has had more EOL dates than any previous Microsoft OS and we are quickly approaching yet another one. On November 12th Windows 10 1803, aka Spring 2018, will be retired and anyone still on it will be forcibly updated to version 1903, which goes by the alias of May 2019. You can try to defer it, but after you first see the pop up you will be on a 35 dau countdown until you are updated whether you like it or not. In theory this is for security reasons, however you can hear the sarcasm dripping from that sentence over at The Inquirer.
On the plus side, you will get to completely skip the Fall Update!
It's not a complete surprise - Microsoft did warn us last month that it would be making in-roads to right the ship soon. Regular updates are at the heart of the "Windows-as-a-Service" model as the company is desperate to avoid the fragmentation experienced by other operating systems.
