Office 2019 will be for Windows 10 users only

Windows 10 surpasses Windows 7 in market share says one statistic

Once Office 2019 rolls out, all users who haven't and refuse to upgrade to Windows 10 will need to gravitate to Office 365, stick with an older iteration of the company's office suite, or use the Office Web Apps.

According to AdDuplex, as of January, 74 percent of Windows 10 users are on the latest version, followed by 17 percent on the Creators Update.

However, Microsoft affirmed that Office will be given 5 years of mainstream support and approximately 2 years of extended support. The report suggests that Windows 10 represents 42.78% of Desktop using the new OS with Windows 7 following closely with a 41.86% of Desktop market share. Nearly two years later Microsoft only managed to bring Windows 10 to 600 million active devices.

Since the arrival of Windows 10, Microsoft has taken a "Windows as a service" approach to delivering operating system updates.

Now I understand that some folks may not have the option to upgrade due to draconian office policies or potential software incompatibilities, but that shouldn't account for half a billion people still using Windows 7. Others have already moved to Windows 10, but plenty are still on Windows 7 or 8.1 - or even Windows XP in some cases. That time the company did not provide much details about the new licensed version of Office 2019.




"Windows 10 was launched at the end of July 2015 and Microsoft will be pleased to have put its Windows 8 experience behind it", he wrote.

Windows 10 LTSC Microsoft also announced that the next long-term servicing channel (LTSC) of Windows 10 will arrive "in the fall of 2018".

Microsoft announced the next version of Office, Office 2019, past year on September and they promised some new features in the new release. Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only, but Microsoft will not be offering MSI deployment for Office 2019 clients, only doing so for Office Server products. The short period between when Office 2019 comes out and when Windows 7 support ends - a year and a half, at most - may be why Microsoft chose to not support that OS and software together, Mangan said.

So expect Word, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Skype for Business etc etc to start rolling out in preview in Q3, though it's doubtless that Office 365 will be heavily peddled alongside. The post also states that Office 219 will release in H2 2018, and extended support of both Office 2019, and 2016 will end at the same time on October 14th 2025. Nor will unsupported Windows 10 semi-annual releases.
