No More Feature Updates For Windows 10!

Source: The Register No More Feature Updates For Windows 10!

And There Was Much Rejoicing!

It’s official, Windows 10 22H2 is the final form for that operating system, there will be no more feature updates!   We no longer need to live in fear of applications which once functioned perfectly suddenly going belly up thanks to a major update.   The locations of your favourite settings will not be randomly moved again and the Start menu will remain the way that you want!  

The EoL of Windows 10 remains October 14, 2025, and Microsoft will continue to provide security updates until that time.   After that it is possible to pay for a long-term servicing channel, but for the majority that will mark the last security update received.  There have certainly been exceptions to this in the past, when major flaws have been revealed and Windows versions beyond their EoL date have received emergency updates.  It isn’t something to count on however, and starting the process to move to Win11 is a good idea.

The move can be expensive for those that need to upgrade their hardware for TPM 2.0 and secure boot, indeed The Register quotes a Lansweeper study determining over 40% of corporate machines will need to be replaced.   At last, there is some truth to Microsoft’s statement than Windows 10 is the final version of Windows; the Windows 10 version you are now running is the last version of Windows … 10.

Microsoft disclosed in an update to its client roadmap that there will be no further feature updates for Windows 10, and so the current version, 22H2, will be the final build of this version of Windows.
