Microsoft Abandon the Sale of Windows 10 Licences

Windows 10 license sales end online Jan 31, 2023. Act for DIY builds.

Windows 10 continues to be installed on a lot more devices than Windows 11, despite Microsoft efforts to get customers to upgrade to its most recent operating system.

The following initiative from Redmond, Washington, USA, is significant: the company will stop selling Windows 10 licences on its website later this month.

Microsoft has stated that it will discontinue offering Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Workstation licences directly through the program’s official product pages.

Customers won’t be able to get OS systems from the Microsoft website after January 31, 2023, alleges the notice.

The message makes it clear that until October 14, Windows 10 will continue to get security fixes that protect computers against viruses, spyware, and other malware.

The time remaining for you to download Windows 10 from the Microsoft website is less than two weeks.

As per TechSpot, Windows 10 Home is $139, Windows 10 Pro is $199, and Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is $309.

However, this only pertains to digital copies of Windows 10 that customers have directly purchased from Microsoft’s website.

OEMs will likely still be able to acquire licenses.

The OEM copies of Home and Pro sold by Amazon and the myriad internet shops that sell reduced product keys are just two examples of the numerous independent retailers who also sell physical copies and downloads.

There is still access to the Microsoft Media Creation Tool on Windows 10.

Despite receiving a lot of negative feedback when it originally launched, a Steam study indicates that Windows 11 is currently losing people to its predecessor.

The fact that it is currently install on more than 3 out of 10 participant machines shows that gamers are starting to prefer Windows 11 or, otherwise, that they simply loathe it less.

A lot of companies are preparing to update to Windows 11, according to TechSpot.

The Windows operating system is frequently update at the slowest rate in the commercial sector.

In contrast, many customers are adamantly resistant to leaving Windows 10, just as they were with Windows 7.
