Computer repair will always be necessary to support top performance and safety. Did you know that Microsoft might extend security updates for Windows 10 until 2025? Doing so allows you to keep that system going until the year 2025 before you need an upgrade.

Geek Speak

If you’re like most computer geeks, you get a new computer every few years. Some geeks take pride in building something new from something old, through upgrades. If you’re not that type of computer user, though, you might call for computer repairs often. It could be a site that installed malware or even spyware that needs removal, either way, security updates are always a necessity. Microsoft will extend these until they phase out the system that year.

Extended Support Until 2025

That’s good news for those in the non-geek group of folks. Most computer users don’t want to buy a new rig every few years. They want theirs to last about three to five years. Some like it to last longer. This update will help you keep those systems a bit longer than expected. Microsoft is well-known for sticking to its release news stories. So it’s expected. There are signs that they will continue even further if you need it.

History Speaks

Back in 2012 Windows server extended support to customers who paid for an extra three years of updates and support. Those updates kept those computers safe from malware and spyware by maintaining software security. It’s done this for other systems as well.

  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows SQL Server 2012
  • Windows 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

These are a few of the extended support that Microsoft offered to customers for a price, long after the product became obsolete to most. That support protected the systems and ensured their ability for users to maintain their systems longer.

The Geeks

It’s good news for the geeks as well. If you have a server operation, professional or gaming fun, you can relax knowing that you’ll have the support for your new system for years to come. While it won’t last forever, you can continue to maintain the server security longer than you thought.

This type of extended support has seen issues in years past. If you’ve ever lost your hard drive and needed to re-install your system, then you know the importance of access to the operating systems. Updates for security are no different.
