LeeShanok IT News: End of Support – Next Week

This is the last week before Microsoft transitions Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Exchange Server 2010 to un-supported status. If you are still running any of these, it’s a good idea to get an upgrade project into your short term budget, as these software products will grow unpredictable and vulnerable as time passes.

Next Tuesday (January 14, 2020) is Microsoft’s “Patch Tuesday”, when the final patches will be released by the manufacturer.  January 15, 2020 marks the first day of non-support.

The chart below lists products and their approaching End of Support (EOS) dates.

 

Legend:

Orange – Already un-supported, some are quite vulnerable by now

Yellow – Approaching end of support
