Microsoft Product Life Cycle Search - Microsoft Support

Posted by Muhammed Posted on Wednesday, November 28, 2012

It is important that you know how long you will get support from manufacturer when you purchase licensed product. Here I would like to share the product life cycle of Microsoft products.

The product lifecycle of Microsoft is divided into mainstream support and extended support. Mainstream support is the first phase of the product support lifecycle. It covers both security and non-security updates for the operating system, as well as complimentary support that is included with the license and paid support. The extended support phase provides users of the operating system with security updates, and paid support is available as well.

The Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems for instance are currently in the extended support phase, while Windows 7 and Windows 8 are in the mainstream support phase.
