Microsoft recently announced that Windows 10 21H2 has reached the final phase of its rollout. This is a great availability. The announcement is especially important for companies.
Although Windows 11 is the big star of the Microsoft catalogue, Windows 10 is still relevant, especially in the professional world. It is not easy to change the operating system. Microsoft knows this so well that important work around Windows 10 is still ongoing.
The company announced on April 15 that the latest version of Windows, 21H2, is ready for mass deployment. This step is reassuring for companies who can have “confidence” in installing this version. This point in time is not surprising as it usually takes five to six months to reach this stage.
Microsoft now recommends installing 21H2 as soon as possible. Instructions to start the deployment are also provided. The giant adds
“Windows 10 21H2 is designed for large-scale deployment. As always, we recommend updating your devices to the latest version of Windows 10 as soon as possible to ensure you can take advantage of the latest features and advanced protections against the latest security threats.
Windows 10, supported at least until 2025
Windows 11 brings problematic hardware requirements to millions of computers. You have no choice but to stay on Windows 10. Redmond has promised to support this environment by October 2025.
When announcing Windows, Microsoft made it clear
“For customers who have a PC that they don’t want to upgrade and aren’t ready to upgrade to a new device, Windows 10 is the right choice. We will support Windows 10 until October 14, 2025 and recently announced that the next Windows 10 feature update will be released later this year. Whatever you decide, we are committed to supporting you and giving you choices on your IT journey.”
A new feature update for Windows 10 is expected next fall. It’s likely to offer only minor improvements.
