Perspectives on the Windows 10 Support Changes

They May Cause Growing Pains, But the Benefits Are Clear

by Lane Shelton | 01.22.16

Last Friday, Microsoft made a major announcement regarding how they will support the Windows Operating System moving forward. In case you didn’t see it, Microsoft will only be supporting Windows 10 as the OS on all 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and later systems. 6th Gen refers primarily to the new Intel Skylake CPU. The change went into effect last Friday, but Microsoft has built in a grace period that will continue Windows 7 and 8.1 support on certain Skylake systems (full list to be forthcoming) until July 2017. At that point, Windows 10 will be the only supported OS on all 6th Gen and later systems.
