Microsoft kills off some PCs

The new May 2019 Update will expand the list of PCs that will not be able to upgrade beyond their current version of Windows 10. Previously Microsoft removed support for Intel Clover Tail processors (see this TechNet note ). The new update will expand the list of Atom processors and other lower end computers that will not be able to support updates beyond the current one.

Microsoft has moved to software as a service model so if you cannot upgrade your version of Windows it will stop receiving support and updates after 18 months. The problem with this if those computers would have stayed on Windows 8 or 8.1 they would receive support and updates until 2023.
