Microsoft has announced that it has crossed a major milestone. The Windows 10 21H2 operating system, the latest version currently available, has finally become ready for widespread deployment and has moved into the public domain stage.
Essentially, this means that anyone who checks for updates on their PC will now be able to install this version on their computer without any problems or hassle.
As a reminder, the Windows 10 November 2021 Update, also known internally as 21H2, was released in November 2021. At the time of release, the update was not automatically distributed and was available on a limited basis, but gradually the restrictions were removed.
The primary audience for Windows 10 version 21H2 is business users who chose not to install Windows 11. The update doesn’t have too many new features. Among them are support for WPA3 H2E, simplified password-free login with Windows Hello for Business, support for GPU computing in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Azure IoT Edge for Linux.
The wide availability of Windows 10 21H2 is also due to the fact that Microsoft is preparing to drop support for some older versions of Windows 10 next month. Version 1909, which is currently supported for Enterprise and Education variations, will stop being supported completely on May 10, and support for 20H2 will end for Home and Pro versions on the same day.
