No Windows 10, no Office 2019, says Microsoft

No Windows 10, no Office 2019, says Microsoft

In North America and the UK, Windows 10 took the lead in January 2017 and June 2016, respectively. It is expected that the gap between Windows 10 and Windows 7 will grow as Microsoft has pulled mainstream for the OS, Gadgets360 reports.

To date, Windows 7 seems more common than Windows 10 in business. The show Windows 10 saw an increase of 1.09 percent compared to December a year ago when it had a market share of 41.69 percent. Windows 7 isn't far behind, but its slow decline has continued over the past few months, nudging the newer Windows OS into first place. "They're trying to let people use the old operating systems as long as those operating systems themselves are being supported, but for Microsoft, it's a support nightmare".

As those who closely track Windows market share know, there are several sources that offer these figures and they always differ due to different methodologies and varying sources of web traffic.

Microsoft in November past year had announced that Windows 10 was running on more than. This release of Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC will be released under our fixed lifecycle policy with a term of 5 years of mainstream support and 5 years of extended support.

This update covers Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8.1, and all versions of Windows 10, for client and server.

Meanwhile, the Windows 10 Creators Update is touted as the best version of Windows 10 ever by Microsoft itself. The short period between when Office 2019 comes out and when Windows 7 support ends - a year and a half, at most - may be why Microsoft made a decision to not support that OS and software together, Mangan said.

It's a move that's clearly created to push businesses that are holding off on Office 365 into subscriptions, as the standalone Office 2019 software will only be supported on Windows 10 and not Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machines.

Windows 10 versus Windows 7: Whose numbers do you trust? In keeping with the previous Long-Term Servicing Channel releases, this release will have the same features as the Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel release made available at the same time - with the usual exceptions (including apps that are often updated with additional functionality, including the in-box apps, Microsoft Edge, and Cortana). Or are they clinging to old habits as Windows 10 rolls out?
