    On its Lifecycle support page at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ilter=FilterNO, MS indicates that mainstream support for all versions of Windows 10 will last until 10/13/2020, except for Windows Mobile, where support is scheduled to end more than 2 years sooner on 1/9/2018. So MS is promising more than 5 years of support (from launch date) for Win10, but barely more than 2 years for WM10.

    Is MS telling us something?

    I wouldn't read too much into it. WM10 is not ready by a mile and if we look at the Previous WP8/WP8.1 example, for the whole WP8.x we also had 5 years, even though just 3 years for WP8.1

    It's more likely we get a WM10.1, with feature and stability improvements at some point to extend that to the typical 5 years.

    Or I could be flat out wrong :D

    All it means if you don't download updates, you won't get support or new features past 2018. Keep your stuff updated and you'll be fine.

    Key lines:

    Microsoft will make updates available for the Operating System, including security updates, for a minimum of 24 months after the lifecycle start date. These updates will be incremental, with each update built on the update that preceded it. Customers need to install each update in order to remain supported.
