Microsoft has just revealed a new policy that once again tries to "encourage" users to upgrade to or embrace Windows 10, but this time it won't be alone in making the push. It has roped in CPU makers, Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm to help steer users towards the latest Windows version. It will be doing so by a two-pronged approach. For end consumers, only Windows 10, or later versions, will be supported on the current, and next, generation of chips, starting with Intel's Skylake. For Enterprise users, Microsoft is pulling the plug on critical updates by July 17, 2017.
