It looks like Microsoft is already taking another step toward the next generation of the Windows operating system that will be replacing Windows 10 shortly. The company has listed the EOL (End of Life) for the Windows 10 operating system for both Home and Pro versions via its website. This means that the latest updated version of Windows 10 will cease to be supported for updates and security as the industry pushes toward whatever comes next.
The official date is October 14th, 2025. Beyond that time, you’ll want to make sure whatever systems you have been updated to the next generation of the OS. At the moment, Microsoft has not yet (officially) stated what the next generation of the OS will be called, although they have been hinting at it being Windows 11 with numerous variables, dates, and promo video lengths that all lead up to the number eleven. Which would be an interesting move after expressing that Windows 10 would be the final ‘version’ of the operating system.
The official announcement of what comes next will be dropped on June 24th and despite all of the propaganda relating to “11”, there is still a chance the company may simply call it “Windows” from this point forward. However, the propaganda has been relatively strong coming from the company, so either it will be Windows 11, or the company is simply (cruelly) toying with the world for whatever reason.
