Microsoft to Fix Custom Apps Crashed by Windows 10 Upgrade

Microsoft gives longer grace period for Windows 10 updates

All now supported feature updates of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions will be supported for 30 months from their original release date, giving customers more time for change management as they move to a faster update cycle.

The change follows an open letter to Microsoft from sysadmins, who said keeping up with the twice-yearly feature updates to Windows 10 was causing them "fatigue".

Enterprise customers clinging to their Windows 7 installations will be able to get security updates for three years longer, until January 2023, thanks to Microsoft changing its mind on pulling the plug on support for the heritage operating system.

According to Microsoft, all future updates with a targeted release for the month of September will be supported for 30 months.
