The crisis that half the world is living because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is taking a toll in many areas. With the toilet in the first place, and countries having a truly bad (cases of Italy or Spain), the economic impact will also be important. And next to these two fields, other side but eye-catching as the saturation of the network or the involvement of the productive sector.
This crisis is bringing out the worst of human beings, but also the best and he is doing both at the individual level as a collective, and entrepreneurial. There are many companies that provide grants, collaborations and put their sand granite to minimize the impact and in the case of Microsoft we have seen for example the know . Now in addition, we have also known that, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, extend the termination date of the service scheduled for Windows 10 version 1709.
Until the 13 of October
Remember that this edition of Windows 10, known as the Fall Creators Update, I had end of support date fixed for the 14th of April 2020, an end-of-term that is affecting the Enterprise and Education. The editions, Home, Pro and Pro for Workstation ended on April 9, 2019. This is the statement of Microsoft:
We’ve been evaluating the situation for public health and we understand the impact that this is having on you, our valued customers. To relieve one of the many burdens facing currently, and based on customer feedback, we have decided to postpone the scheduled date of completion of the service for Enterprise, Education and IoT Enterprise of Windows 10, version 1709. This means that the devices will receive monthly security updates only from may to October. Update final security to these editions of Windows 10, version 1709, will be launched on the 13th of October 2020 instead of April 14, 2020.
Now, with this change of dates, editions, Enterprise, Education and IoT Enterprise of Windows 10, you will see how the support is extended until October 13, 2020 in place of the April 14, 2020. A measure that will also benefit to all supported versions of Microsoft Configuration Manager, you will be able to continue using Windows 10 version 1709 until that date.
For now the changes are not reflected in the support page of Microsoft that still shows the deadline of April 14, 2020 as end of support for versions Educatio, Enterprise and IoT Enterprise of Windows 10 Dec Creators Update.
