Are you still using Win­dows 10, or already Win­dows 11?

Win­dows 11 is the latest oper­ating system by Microsoft and will replace Win­dows 10 – 7 years old already – in the medium term. How­ever, it is not absolutely nec­es­sary to change over just yet.

The launch of Win­dows 10 on 29th July 2015 her­alded a new era of oper­ating sys­tems. This system is cur­rently used to run some three quar­ters of all PCs glob­ally, and there­fore prob­ably still has quite some life in it yet – its suc­cessor, Win­dows 11, only makes up some 10 per cent so far.

From a secu­rity aspect though, the deciding factor is not actu­ally a system’s degree of dis­tri­b­u­tion, but if or for how long a man­u­fac­turer is still pro­viding updates for it –  because if secu­rity updates are no longer pro­vided, attackers can exploit poten­tial system vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties unhindered.

Luckily enough, according to their own state­ment, Microsoft will still be pub­lishing an update at least half-yearly right up to 14th October 2025. If you are there­fore a Win­dows 10 user, you can still con­tinue working with it for some three years with confidence.
