Windows 10 version 1903 support coming to an end in December
Windows 10, version 1903 was released on May 21 of last year and there are still many users stuck with it in the second half of 2020 due to various reasons. According to the AdDuplex Report for August 2020, 33.5 percent of the computers surveyed were still running Windows 10 1903 last month. Windows 10 1909 was the most popular version with 35.5 percent, followed by Windows 10 2004 — 24.1 percent, with all the other versions spotted in the wild running on 2.4 percent of the almost 150,000 computers that were part of the survey or less.
Since Windows 10 2004 is rapidly gaining popularity, the fact that support for Windows 10 1903 will be discontinued in early December of this year should not be a problem. However, Windows 10 1809 support is scheduled to end on November 10 for those using non-Enterprise and Education editions, which should be supported by Microsoft until May 11, 2021 — and those who are stuck with them should thank the ongoing pandemic for this. More details about the reasons for changing the initial end of support and servicing dates can be found on this page.
In this moment, the latest Windows 10 version — released back in May — is labeled 2004. Its Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations editions will be supported by Microsoft until December 14, 2021. The company headquartered in Redmond will support the Enterprise and Education editions until the same date as well.
Those wondering about the fate of Windows 10 1909 should know that this version is scheduled to get support until May 11, 2020. Thankfully, Enterprise and Education editions users will have Microsoft's backing until May 10, 2022.
