Microsoft extends support of Windows 10 version 1809

Microsoft have announced they are extending support of the 1809 version of Windows 10. The Home, Pro, Education and IoT Core editions of the 1809 update where due to go end of life May 12th 2020 but Microsoft have extended this to November 10th. This takes the pressure of IT department managing the rollout of Windows 10 1903/1909 which is especially difficult while many users are working remotely.

We have been evaluating the public health situation and understand the impact this is having on many of our customers. To help ease some of the burdens customers are facing, we are going to delay the scheduled end of service date for the Home, Pro, Pro Education, Pro for Workstations, and IoT Core editions of Windows 10, version 1809 to November 10, 2020. This means devices will receive monthly security updates only from June to November. The final security update for these editions of Windows 10, version 1809 will be released on November 10, 2020 instead of May 12, 2020.

I think the 2004 / 20H1 version of Windows 10 could also be delayed for the same reason.
