Microsoft has posted a warning on its website in the support section about the imminent end of its life cycle for the Windows 10 operating system version 1809.
This version was released in November 2018 and was called the Windows 10 October 2018 update. Its support for ordinary users will last until May 12, 2020.
May 12, 2020, support will cease for versions of Windows 10 Home Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Pro for Education, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations and Windows 10 IoT Core.
After this date, these versions will no longer receive security updates. Microsoft advises moving to more recent versions of Windows in order to maintain system security.
Note that Windows 10 version 1809 was very problematic. Its distribution was even temporarily stopped due to user files being deleted without demand. Also, users encountered problems with Intel drivers and processors.
Support for the next major update of Windows 10 – version 1903 or Windows 10 May 2019 Update will last until December 2020, and Windows 10 version 1909, released last November – until May 2021.
