Good News! Windows Defender Will Soon Guard Users From Scareware

Windows 10 version 1511, 1607, 1703, and 1709 will all be supported for another six months to help enterprise and education users move to the latest supported versions of Windows 10.

When Office 2019 comes out later this year, Microsoft will support it only on Windows 10, the company said this week.

Office 2019 will ship in the second half of this year and you will be able to get previews of it in the second quarter.

The writing may have been on the wall when Windows Vista was released to the public, but it's only after many, many years we're starting to hear the stories of those who worked on the ill-fated operating system, providing insight into exactly what went wrong. In keeping with the previous Long-Term Servicing Channel releases, this release will have the same features as the Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel release made available at the same time - with the usual exceptions (including apps that are often updated with additional functionality, including the in-box apps, Microsoft Edge, and Cortana).

Microsoft has a reason why they decided to make sure that Office 2019 only works with Windows 10. It is expected that the gap between Windows 10 and Windows 7 will grow as Microsoft has pulled mainstream for the OS, Gadgets360 reports.

United States concerned sarin gas used in Syria: Jim Mattis
Mattis added it appears chlorine was used in the attacks, but "we are even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use". The Islamic State group continues to use them, they said, although the militants' arms are said to be more rudimentary.

However, from March 1, Microsoft's Windows Defender and other security products will "classify programs that display coercive messages as unwanted software, which will be detected and removed".

And don't even get me started on Windows 7's pitiful stylus support. Microsoft will keep developing the tools until they're passing the company's quality checks after which they will release the final version of Office 2019.

Windows 10 received quite a quick uptake among consumers during its first year of operation - no wonder, Microsoft gave it out as a free upgrade to those who wanted it. For those customers, we're announcing new details on the next perpetual release of Office and LTSC release of Windows 10.

Microsoft's announcement didn't explain why the extended support for the unreleased Office 2019 had been shortened.

Others viewed Microsoft's decision as a harbinger of an Office 365-only world. However, unlike the Fall Creators Update, the Windows 10 Redstone 4 is not for creators.
