Windows stops supporting Windows 10 versions in a few days: here you can check if you have one of those affected: Windows 10 is a living ecosystem, and therefore it is receiving gradual updates with the passage of time, both the important ones that usually happen a couple of times a year and the cumulative ones that are much more constant.

But the user may have hundreds of reasons not to want to update their Windows 10, among which would be possible fears of incompatibilities or critical system failures, and those systems that are still running the 1809 version of Windows 10, the one known as October 2018, could be left out of the update equation next week.

Those of Redmond remember that as of November 10, 2020, the version of Windows 10 1809 will no longer receive support and security updates.

This support termination affects the Home, Pro, Pro for Workstation, and IoT Core editions versions of Windows 10. Interestingly, the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions versions of Windows will continue to receive support through May 11, 2021.

Microsoft notes that “we recommend that you upgrade these devices to a supported version as soon as possible to continue to receive monthly quality updates with security fixes.”

In fact the end of the service of the 1809 version of Windows 10 would have to have arrived earlier, but it was delayed seven months by the issue of the coronavirus pandemic, to make it easier for companies to have more time to update all their equipment.

Interestingly, the 1903 version of Windows 10, will also end its support next December 8, so that suddenly two major Windows updates will stop having security updates.

This is the new Netflix feature that many people have been demanding for a long time

Netflix is one of the pioneer companies in streaming movies and TV series, allowing subscribers to view a massive library of original and licensed content over the internet.

Like its competition, it has its flaws. However, as BGR has collected, Netflix's user interface and the size of its library has surpassed that of many competitors over the years.

That said, Netflix has never tried to give users the ability to let the service take over and tell them what they should see.

While it is true that Netflix offers many suggestions and has algorithms to steer viewers in the right direction, at the end of the day it is the user who chooses what to watch.

However, this week, the company has revealed that it will begin testing a new feature called Direct, which serves as a real-time TV channel full of shows, movies and more.

Direct is always up and running whether you watch it or not, so you can tune in whenever you want if you're having a hard time deciding what to see for yourself.

For now, the feature is being tested only in France. In fact, since last November 5, the company has been gradually deploying the service. Finally, it will be accessible to everyone in the country at the beginning of December.

According to a press release issued by Netflix, traditional television is still very popular in France and subscribers there want to have the option to watch the content of the service without having to choose what to watch first.

According to BGR, not only is it a great way to avoid the stress of having to decide what to watch, but as Netflix says, "you can get carried away without having to choose a particular title and be amazed by the diversity of the Netflix catalog."

In this sense, having a "live TV channel" of Netflix content can be a great way to introduce people to shows and movies they haven't even considered watching before.

The feature is only available on the web, so subscribers won't be able to find it in the mobile app or the TV app.
