Microsoft To End Support For Windows 10, Impacting 240 Million Computers

Share

<p><strong>According to Canalys Research,</strong> 240 million personal computers (PCs) may be disposed of as a consequence of Microsoft Corp.’s decision to stop supporting the Windows 10 operating system, possibly contributing to landfill trash.</p>

<p>320,000 automobiles’ worth of electronic garbage, or 480 million kg, may come from these PCs. Even though many PCs would continue to work for years after OS support ends, Canalys cautioned that there might not be much of a market for hardware without security upgrades.</p>
<p>Microsoft said that, for an unknown yearly fee, it would continue to deliver security updates for Windows 10 devices until October 2028.</p>
<p>According to Canalys, upgrading to a modern PC may be more affordable if the extended Windows 10 support price structure follows previous patterns. This would result in a greater number of older PCs being sent for disposal.</p>
<p>By October 2025, Microsoft plans to stop supporting Windows 10. The next operating system generation is expected to provide sophisticated artificial intelligence technologies to personal computers, which might stimulate the stagnant PC industry.</p>
<p>A request for comment about the environmental effects of disposing of Windows 11 incompatible devices was not immediately answered by Microsoft.</p>
<p>Hard drives from servers and personal computers are recycled to collect elements that may be utilized in motors for electric cars and even in the production of renewable energy.</p>
<p>According to Peter Afiuny, chief commercial officer of Noveon Magnetics, “converting end-of-life computers into the magnets that power sustainable technologies like electric vehicles and wind turbines will help meet the rising global demand for electricity.”</p>
<p>Hard drives are often thrown away before they reach the end of their useful lives, according to Afiuny, which results in an excess of trash made of rare earth magnetic materials.<br />
According to battery recycling company Redwood Materials, batteries may be recycled almost indefinitely to recover metals including copper, nickel, cobalt, and lithium.</p>
