[German]Well, it's only February 2020 – but Microsoft is already reminding people that support with updates for Windows 10 version 1809 will expire soon. Here are a few details about Windows 10 version 1809 end of life.
Through this post I became aware of the Microsoft support article 4541558 dated February 12, 2020. According to the Windows Lifecycle Information Sheet, Windows 10 version 1809 reaches the 18-month service end on May 12, 2020.
This applies to the Windows 10 variants listed below, which by the way were first released in October 2018, but then withdrawn again:
- Windows 10 Home Version 1809
- Windows 10 Pro Version 1809
- Windows 10 Pro for Education Version 1809
- Windows 10 Pro for Workstations Version 1809
- Windows 10 IoT Core Version 1809
In contrast, Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Enterprise Education, which is intended for enterprise use, will receive 30 months of support and will be supported until May 11, 2021. Once the end-of-life date is reached, the versions will no longer receive updates and will be forced to be upgraded to the next Windows 10 build via feature updates.
