    LOL No need to bait them; we will see them soon enough
    Yup! Think about it though, 10 years, will we even be using PC's in 2025? Or will we all be bio hacked, and use some kind of genetically change virus's with nanites that gives us Borg powers? Ok now I'm being geeky

    They could easily extend it. They have to pick some type of time frame to start with. If they had said forever, and then changed their mind latter on down the road, and released Windows 11, people would call them on the free forever statement. This way they have options latter on down the road. In ten years or so they decide what to do. Nothings etched in stone as far as this goes.

    After 10 loooong years, I would think at the very least, a rebranding would be in order

    Tenforums will be getting very long in the tooth by then. However, Sevenforums will still be going strong, I imagine, though

    10 years is the standard already set with Windows 7. XP got more than 10 didn't it? If Microsoft commit ten years of support to Windows 10, then it is likely that a new OS from Microsoft could emerge in 5 years. Microsoft will design a large overlap of support years for OS transitions.

    Of course, if Windows 10 is to be the last, then maybe Microsoft simply plans to choose shop in ten years' time.

    Seriously now and jokes aside, Microsoft could bring out "Updates"(updates in quotes because I don't know if update or upgrade is the better word) that would extend Win10's lifecycle beyond the 10 years.
