Windows lifecycle fact sheet
Last updated: May 2013
Every Windows product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it's no longer supported or sold. Knowing key dates in this lifecycle helps you make informed decisions about when to upgrade or make other changes to your software.
Here are the rights and limits of the Windows lifecycle.
End of support refers to the date when Microsoft no longer provides automatic fixes, updates, or online technical assistance.
This is the time to make sure you have the latest available service pack installed.
Without Microsoft support, you will no longer receive security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software that can steal your personal information. For more information go to Microsoft Support Lifecycle.
