Yep, it's that time again. Microsoft will soon be pushing out the second of the two annual feature updates to Windows 10 users in the coming days. As was the case last year, this autumn release is smaller in scope than the spring one. However, that doesn't mean that nothing's changing. Let's take a look at some differences you may notice.

The days that it's possible to continue to safely run Microsoft's Windows 7 are literally numbered. Despite the fact stats suggest that millions have clung on to the aging operating system until the very last moment, all support is being withdrawn in January.

The new version of Microsoft's Windows operating system is now rolling out onto PCs, mobiles and tablets round the world. As has been widely publicised in the lead up to this launch, this upgrade is being made available for free to Windows 7 & 8 users for the first year.

As we previously reported, Microsoft announced that the new version of Windows, "Windows 10", will be released this summer. They have now confirmed that this new OS will release on July 29th. As many of you will already be aware, Windows 10 is going to be made available as a free upgrade for (most) users of Windows 7 and 8 for the first year.

There's now fewer than 150 days until the 2003 edition of Microsoft's popular server operating system is out of support. Much like the recent end of support for Windows XP, this means that this edition of their operating system will no longer receive any updates (security related or otherwise). Again, much like XP, this will leave machine / servers running this operating systems highly vulnerable to attacks as new flaws in the system are found and remain unpatched.
