Previously, Windows OS had a support period of 5 years of “mainstream support” and 5 years of “extended support”. In mainstream support and extended support, the major difference is whether or not updates for non-security related issues (such as defects) are provided

That has changed a lot from Windows 10

From Windows 10 life cycle policy is called Modern Lifecycle Policy Simply put, Windows 10 comes in various versions and Windows 10 doesn't support unless you make it a new and appropriate version

There is a feeling that Windows, which has been a period of 5 years (+ 5 years), has become windows 10 and has been shortened to a year and a half (+ half a year). If it is a normal corporate terminal, there will be no problem. Monthly windows update will be fine, and IT managers will have no problem if they use WSUS or SCCM.

What about dedicated terminals, hospitals with electronic medical terminals for electronic medical chart systems, financial institutions with core and billing terminals, manufacturing industries with design CAD terminals and explanation CAE terminals, etc. There are things, and it is hard for the single person Sith in each place

I think that VDI is also difficult. I'm negative about VDI's single image technology represented by Horizon View linked clones. . . It is possible that the application of linked clone VDI on a single unit could affect the whole.
