Microsoft earlier this month quietly extended the life of Windows 10’s debut edition, the version launched in July 2015.
Rather than end support for Windows 10 v. 1507 — Microsoft labels the OS by year and month — in March, as announced last year, the company will issue the version’s final security updates in May, probably May 9, that month’s Patch Tuesday.
The new date was posted as a revision to a mid-January blog post by Nathan Mercer, a senior product marketing manager for Microsoft. In the original entry, Mercer had tapped March 26 as the end of 1507 “servicing,” a company synonym for updating and patching.
