We told you about the new Windows customer SKUs yesterday that Microsoft intends to implement later this year, but it seems the changes keep on coming. Microsoft has just officially announced that Office 2019 will only work on machines with Windows 10 and the next LTSC release of Windows Server. This is of course to another effort to force Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users to upgrade to 10.
So it looks like if you want to run Office 2019 you’ll need to be on a Windows 10 machine. Also unlike previous version of Microsoft Office that came with 10 years of support, Office 2019’s support lifecycle has been shortened to five years of mainstream support and two years of extended support.
