Companies that have struggled to meet Microsoft’s end-of-life deadlines are about to find themselves with even fewer working options. Starting next week, support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 will end.
Businesses seem pretty satisfied with Windows 10 overall. But there’s one feature that’s still confusing and confounding IT pros regularly: the update cycles.
Today is the deadline for end of support for Windows Server 2003. The reason you may not have noticed? Unlike Windows XP, this version is likely to live on much longer.
Speculation about what exactly Microsoft meant when talking about changes to its update process abounds. But from the sounds of it, if Patch Tuesday isn’t dying, it’s certainly changing.
Reports of Internet Explorer’s death may have been slightly exaggerated. Windows 10 will soon be available to brave early adopters. There’s a lot going on in Redmond.
The controversial Project Zero made Google a lot of enemies, from software giants to companies and individual users caught in the middle. Now Google is deciding to take it a little easier on its critics.
Conflicting policies on how and when to address patches left IT with the possibility of a zero-day attack. The cause of that gap in protection: Microsoft and Google didn’t quite see eye-to-eye on when patches need to be made available.
There are plenty of headlines this week that are trying to shock and scare IT by screaming that Microsoft has ended support for Windows 7. That’s not actually true – but the OS has reached a milestone.
When an end-of-life deadline hits popular products or services, companies usually face one of two options: Upgrade or pay for extended support. But at least one high-ranking executive theorizes that option may not exist for Windows Server 2003 customers.
It’s a tale of two OSs: One that almost no one likes, and another that just refuses to die. And now it’s reached a strange new chapter.
