Good for Windows 10, Bad for Office — Microsoft Support Changes

  • Microsoft Office 2019 will run only on Windows 10

A post on the Windows blog outlines changes to servicing and support of Windows and Office. For instance, Windows 10 can work with the fingerprint sensor using Windows Hello. The app platform would be an integral part of the future Microsoft has dreamt: various devices running the same Windows Core OS and UWP apps but with a different flexible Windows Shell such as Andromeda or Polaris.

Starting next month, Microsoft will be on the lookout for software that uses alarming or misleading notifications to scare users into paying for added security protection. In comparison, Windows 10 had managed 32.84 percent by then. It was mentioned that Office 2019 won't be hitting those PCs who are running any OS version later than Windows 10. "Office 2019 will be a valuable upgrade for customers who feel that they need to keep some or all of their apps and servers on-premises", said Jared Spataro, general manager, Office, Microsoft.

Cumulative update KB4077735 is not rolled out via Windows Update, and you can only download it manually from Microsoft's Update Catalog page. It'll arrive concurrently with the fall semiannual channel release of Windows 10 and will have similar features.

This update comes packed with an issue that was acknowledged by Microsoft.

Are England destined for third straight Six Nations title?
We also have the experience of Fergus McFadden who is also a pretty accomplished goal-kicker too. He previously coached Jalibert at Bordeaux-Begles.

Microsoft has made no attempt to hide the fact that it wants Windows users to make the switch to Windows 10.

Another reason is simply that Windows 7 is old. The next LTSC release was Windows 10 version 1607 in August 2016.

Microsoft announced the next version of Office, Office 2019, a year ago on September and they promised some new features in the new release. Microsoft also says that Office 2019 client apps will be released with the "Click to Run" installation technology only and not the MSI deployment methodology which is through Windows Installer Packages. There will be no MSI install files provided for Office 2019, although "we will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products", Microsoft indicated.

Doubtless there are many individual users out there who won't appreciate the prodding. Instead, it'll have an extended support phase that's reduced by three years.

Houston Rockets: What to watch for against the Magic on January 30
DeRozan produced his 36th game with at least 20 points despite shooting 6 of 18 from the floor and missing 5 of 6 3-point tries. This was the most points scored in a game this season and the most scored by a player in franchise history for the Rockets.

Others viewed Microsoft's decision as a harbinger of an Office 365-only world.

Office 2019 includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook apps, as well as server versions of Skype for Business, Exchange, and SharePoint. Only the systems that are enrolled in the long-term servicing branch are getting the update.

Now Microsoft is putting its foot down regarding Office 365 ProPlus support. Windows 10 also has built-in functions that let you take screenshots or recordings without disturbing your gameplay using simple shortcuts. According to a survey of enterprise IT admins past year, 68% of businesses are still running Windows 7, compared to 13% on Windows 10.

The Jan. 14, 2020 end-of-support date seems rather accelerated.

Syrian opposition: Turkey to represent us at Sochi summit
The Congress wrapped up with a final statement that set up a 150-member committee tasked with creating a draft constitution. Representatives from various countries and global organizations were also invited as observers of the congress.

Microsoft is giving its enterprise and education customers a little more time before their older versions of Windows 10 begin slipping out of support.
