In a post that states that many customers are plunging forward with Windows 10 upgrades at an amazing pace, Microsoft’s Michael Niehaus also announces that Microsoft will let customers hold on to Windows 10 1511 just a little longer. You know, so they can have ample time to upgrade. Windows 10 1511 was originally intended to fall out of support in September and according to the statement will now be supported with updates until April 2018:
Many customers have already made significant progress implementing these changes, including MARS, Kimberly-Clark, and Accenture. To help some early enterprise adopters that are still finishing their transition to Windows as a service, we will be providing a supplemental servicing package for Windows 10, version 1511 for an additional six months, until April 2018, providing updates to address critical and important security issues that arise during that time. These updates will be available to anyone using Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1511 or Windows 10 Education, version 1511. Updates will be offered via all normal channels, including Windows Update, WSUS, Configuration Manager, and the Windows Update catalog.
