QuoteMicrosoft says it will stop supporting Windows 10 in 2025, as it prepares to unveil a major revamp of its Windows operating system later this month.

When Windows 10 was launched, Microsoft said it was intended to be the final version of the operating system.

But from 14 October 2025, there will be no new updates or security fixes for either the Home or Pro versions.

And Microsoft says its successor will represent one of the "most significant updates" to the OS in the past decade.

Its predecessor, Windows 7, was retired in 2020, although businesses could pay Microsoft to continue receiving updates for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise.

Well since they've only just stopped supporting Win 7 I reckon they'll be supporting Win 10 well beyond 2025.  Or at least they had better do so unless the upgrade to the new OS is FREE.   :D hahahaha

Is the new OS called Linux?
I'd lay money it will rely more heavily on some linux architecture.
