For those of you who aren't aware of it, Microsoft is scheduled to make a big announcement on June 24th about Windows 10.

The big rumor that's been circulating is that there will be a new version which will be named "Windows 11" or "Windows Sun Valley" or some other name.

Microsoft should be dispelling all the rumors in 11 days.

:unsure:

Even if Windows 10's official "end of life"(EOL) occurs in October 2025, it's my guess support will continue for it for some time after that.
It continued for 5 years with Windows XP and 2-3/4 years with Windows Vista, and supposedly will continue for 3 years with Windows 7.

It'll be interesting to see if MS continues with the free OS upgrade for Win7, 8 and 8.1 users after that Win 10 'retirement' date.

<shrug> Nary a clue as to what "might" happen. All I know for sure is according to Microsoft's announcement the latest updated version of Windows 10 will cease to be supported for updates and security on October 14, 2025.

I would doubt it, to be honest. After all, given all the opportunities people have had to upgrade heretofore, I doubt MS will be that generous. Also, I'll be curious to see if this will require a paid upgrade for current Win 10 machines. They need to feed that revenue stream, after all.

I agree.
No such thing as a free lunch.

However....MS has shown profitability with their current business plan, that is ,giving a limited ( though large ) number of free upgrades for their OS while 'selling' productivity apps as 'services' through a subscription model.
Win 10 looks more like a free necessity that is in reality, the hook to bring customers to their products.
Like a drug, the OS is merely a 'taste'. Once experienced they own you :D


( It's said, there are exceptions to the rule.)
I've made other plans :D

Yep, I read about it earlier today.
I wouldn't be in any hurry to obtain and install what's currently available.
Be patient for another 9 days until Microsoft makes its official announcement.
The first official insider preview version will supposedly be released that day.

Frank, I won't even be in a hurry when it is officially released by Microsoft!
I'll let others sample the waters first.
