    On 12 November 2019, users running Windows 10 version 1803 (the October 2018 update) or earlier on non-enterprise licenses will be required to upgrade to version 1903 (May 2019 update) or find themselves no longer able to receive monthly security updates.

    According to Microsoft, from that date, Windows 10 version 1803 Home, Windows 10 version 1803 Pro, Windows 10 version 1803 Pro for Workstations, and Windows 10 version 1803 IoT Core will reach end of servicing, which means:

    Windows Update will automatically initiate a feature update to ensure device security and ecosystem health.

    Support for Windows 10 Enterprise users still on 1803 will end in November 2020.

    Needless to say, despite recent warnings this was coming, the update demand is likely to come as a shock to many 1803 users who only received what is still the most widely used version of Windows 10 as recently as May 2018.

    Guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet. I'm still on 1803.

    I updated to 1903 on 3 of my 4 windows machines so far so good.2 of which are HP machines (I didn't buy them they were donated to me) and the other is a Lenovo laptop.I just let it happen if it breaks no big deal I will fix it when I get around to it.Some people are getting a black screen but the fix is ctrl+alt+delete and restart.Some people it is working and some I've read not so much.This is a big mess M$ has put upon its customer base or should I say tester base.We are the testers now since M$ got rid of a lot of people so I heard don't know how true it is.
