Windows 10 Version 2004 Set For Launch Today


No surprises. Not when you consider there are only a few days left of May. Windows 10 version 2004, also known as the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, should see daylight today.

At least, according to this Windows 10 lifecycle fact sheet page that has just been updated.

Apparently, Microsoft lists the date of availability as May 27, today. Buzz among the bees was that the company was planning to release this feature update tomorrow. But the German page has been refreshed with this new information.

The corresponding US lifecycle fact sheet is yet to be revised, as it still only goes up until version 1909.

According to the intel provided, support for Windows 10 version 2004 will end on December 14, 2021, which lines up with the usual 18 months of support that Redmond reserves for new versions of the Windows 10 operating system.

The date remains the same for Education and Enterprise SKUS, seeing as only the fall update gets the extra 12 months of support for these two variants.

All that said, if the Windows 10 May 2020 Update does indeed launch today, it’s not going to be forced on anyone. Microsoft no longer does that, unless the version you are on is nearing the end of support. Instead, you will now only see a link in Windows Update that will let you opt in for deployment.

That is, only if you are ready and choose to begin the installation.

If you are ready today, then you will be allowed to make the upgrade after 10 AM Pacific Time.
