Windows 10 Version 1507 Reaches End of Servicing with no further updates beyond 26 March 2017
Since the initial release of Windows 10 back in July of 2015, that initial version of Windows 10 is about to be shuffled out of its role as one of the two CBB releases. That means no further updates in just a little more than 60 days.

Story

Keeping and eye on Windows and other things tech!
Introduction

I served for 29 plus years in the U.S. Navy and retired as a Master Chief Petty Officer in November 2011. My work background in the Navy was telecommunications related so my hobby of computers fit well in what I did for the Navy. I consider myself a tech geek and enjoy most things in that arena.

My first website – AnotherWin95.com – came online in 1995. Back then I used GeoCities Web Hosting for it and WindowsObserver.com is the result of the work I have done on this site since 1995.

In January 2010 my community contributions were recognized by Microsoft when I received my first Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award for the Windows Operating System. Since then I have been renewed in the Microsoft MVP Windows Expert-Consumer category each year on January 1st.

I host the Observed Tech PODCAST which is a weekly look at all things tech with a decidedly Microsoft angle however, all subjects are discussed including security, social media, hardware, software and anything tech-ish!

My other area of passion is space, as in Low Earth Orbit and Outer. I have attended four official #NASATweetup #NASASocial events as well as many unofficial gatherings related to our Space Program.

I am also an amateur photographer learning my way around my second DSLR camera – a Nikon D5100.

My wife and I are avid Harley Davidson fans and we put miles on a 2007 Ultra Classic every chance we get.
