In Last July, Microsoft took a big step forward in this journey with the introduction of Microsoft 365, a new product suite that brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. Many customers are in the process of moving to one or more of these products, and they’ve asked us to clarify a few key points to help them with their upgrades. from today two years before the end of extended support for Windows 7 and Office 2010 (January and October 2020, respectively) – they have announced servicing extensions for Windows 10, changes to the Office 365 ProPlus system requirements, and new details on the next perpetual release of Office and Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release of Windows.
