If you have steadfastly refused to update your Windows 10 PC to a new build since launch, Microsoft has given you another 2 months reprieve to still get patches and bug fixes.

Build 1507 of the OS was to exit support on the 26th March, but Microsoft has now announced on Technet that version 1507 will continue to be services till May 2017.

No reason was given for the move, and we suspect not too many people were affected, but those who were appear to be pretty influential.

Currently Microsoft plans to only support the two latest versions of Windows 10, and expect most users to remain current with the latest version of the OS via automatic updates, a practice which has been criticised but which means that more than 75% of Windows 10 users are on the latest public version of the OS.
