Microsoft to end Windows 8 support today

Windows-8.1

Last year, Microsoft launched Windows 10 update for Windows 7 and Windows 8 for free. Windows 10 comes with many improvements and new features over Windows 8 like Cortana (personal digital assistant) and revamped version of start screen for both mouse and touchscreen users.

Today, Microsoft is ending support for Windows 8 and the existing users will no longer able to receive security updates. We suggest existing Windows 8 users to upgrade their devices to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 to continue enjoying security updates.

Recent report from NetMarketShare confirmed, Windows 8 still owns 2.76 %, PC market share. However, after Microsoft ends Windows 8 support. We expect to see more growth in adoption of Windows 10.

The company has already begun its developments of Windows Redstone. If you don’t know Windows Redstone is the next major update for Windows 10, which is expected to bring lots features and improvements like better continuum support and much more. After Windows Redstone update, we expect to see more growth in adoption rate of Windows 10 as many of us like to see new features and improvements.
