NEWS: Internet Explorer guidance for Enterprise customers evaluating Windows 10

imageEveryone running Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10 needs to upgrade to Internet Explorer 11.  Customers have until January 12, 2016 which leaves, at the time of this post, 6 months remaining.  The deprecation of versions prior to IE11 was announced back in August 2014 by Roger Capriotti, Director of Product Development for Internet Explorer:

…After January 12, 2016, only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. For example, customers using Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, or Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 SP1 should migrate to Internet Explorer 11 to continue receiving security updates and technical support. For more details regarding support timelines on Windows and Windows Embedded, see the Microsoft Support Lifecycle site.

(This has been repeated by most media outlets here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, so hopefully, as a savvy IT professional, this does not come as a surprise to you.)
