3 Reasons to Believe Microsoft Will Stop Servicing Windows 10 v1507 on May 9

Its one thing to provide a passing comment or deliver a single announcement, but Microsoft has now distributed 3 separate resources to let customers know that the end of servicing is coming for  Windows 10 v1507 CB and CBB on May 9, 2017.

1st piece of evidence: (KB4018798) Windows 10 v1507 End of Servicing for CB and CBB – With the availability of Windows 10, version 1607 to the VLSC on January 26th, the grace period for Windows 10, version 1507 will begin. End of servicing for Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business (CBB) will occur on May 9, 2017.

2nd piece of evidence: (KB4015562) Windows 10 version 1507 will no longer receive security updatesAfter May 9, 2017, Windows 10 devices running version 1507 will no longer receive security and quality updates.

3rd piece of evidence: (KB4018797) Windows 10 CB and CBB Product Names Updated – With the End of Servicing for Windows 10 v1507 on May 9, 2017, we want to ensure there is no confusion over the support for other versions of Windows 10. If you are a Windows 10 customer in good standing, you are supported until, at least, October 14, 2025. However, you must stay current to continue receiving monthly updates, including security updates.

OK, OK. We get it.
