Since the introduction of Win11, Microsoft has never given up promoting its own new system, guiding old users to upgrade while also trying to attract new users to choose Win11 instead of Win10.
Now, Microsoft has finally come up with a way to completely solve the problem of new users buying Win10: theNot for sale.
Today. Microsoft posted a notice on the official Windows 10 Home, Pro and Workstation pages, informing users that digital license purchases for Win10 will be discontinued after January 31.
At the same time, Microsoft also informed users that Win10 will continue to provide security support until October 14, 2025, in other words, after that, Win10 is likely to be gradually abandoned completely, just like Win7 now.
For usersAfter January 31, only digital licenses for Win11 will be available for purchase on the official website. If you want to use the genuine Win10, you will have to choose a third-party channel and buy the unsold stock licenses.
In terms of development strategy, Microsoft is also currently putting most of its resources into the development of Win11 and subsequent versions of Windows, which has led to Win10 currently receiving only a few minor updates without a large number of new features added.
It can be said thatMicrosoft completely abandoned Win10, just a matter of time.
