Microsoft to halve support for Windows 10 users

Microsoft is set to halve its support for Windows 10 users.

The technology company will release its latest Windows 10 update later this year but some users will struggle to get access to the new service as the company will be halving the support period for Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC).

The Enterprise LTSC releases will only be supported for five years instead of the earlier commitment of ten years as a number of clients claimed they did not need the support cycle.

Senior product manager for Microsoft 365, Joe Lurie describes the intended target for the LTSC release as “regulated devices that cannot accept feature updates for years at a time, process control devices on the manufacturing floor that never touch the internet, and specialty systems that must stay locked in time and require a long-term support channel.”
