Microsoft throws extended support lifeline for folk stuck on car-crash Windows 10 1809


They can't even have sensible version numbers

How do you explain any of this 1809 and 2004 bollocks to a normal person?

"Sorry, your version of Windows 10 is unsupported and needs to be updated"

"Oh right, which version will I be getting?"

"Windows 10"


MS really backed themselves into a corner with this badly thought out attempt at dropping version numbers. They've just ended up with version numbers but ridiculous ones. And what hapoens when hardware becomes too old to upgrade?

Was it an attempt to copy ChromeOS?
