LTSB, for "Long-term Servicing Branch," which was later rebranded as LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel), is the only edition of Windows 10 which retained the traditional 5+5 support scheme of Mainstream and Extended periods. Although this original LTSB (a second was released in August 2016 and a third debuted in November 2018) has five more years of "Extended" support coming to it, this date ends some support offerings, such as feature change requests and non-security bug fixes. Microsoft issues the final bug fixes and non-security changes to all SKUs (stock-keeping units) of Windows 10 2004, from Home to Enterprise, ending 18 months of support. This message, for it will be just that, posted with nary an announcement except for a brief line from the Windows Update Twitter account, will appear on the Windows release health dashboard. Microsoft continues to automatically upgrade Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro PCs running version 1903 to the latest, version 2004, aka "Windows 10 May 2020 Update.". Microsoft begins to forcibly upgrade PCs powered by Windows 10 Home 1909 or Windows 10 Pro 1909, the first service pack-esque update, to the recent Windows 10 20H2. Microsoft strongly hinted on July 22 that it was kicking off forced upgrades for 1903. Because of its 18-month support lifecycle, this refresh will be installed primarily by Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro customers. Windows Server release information. Microsoft kicks off its forced upgrades to replace Windows 10 Home 20H2 and Windows 10 Pro 20H2 with the year-later refresh Windows 10 21H2. Somewhere around this date, Microsoft may inform businesses that Windows 10 2009 – the service pack issued three months ago – is ready to deploy throughout their environments. I don;t think they plan to release any other version after this. Each mutation of the plan comes as a surprise to customers. Windows 10 1903 falls off the support list Dec. 8, 2020, or 16 weeks from this date. The probable launch: Patch Tuesday, Oct. 12.
