Microsoft released Windows 10 on July 29th, 2015.
Information Services has been testing the Windows 10 early releases to ensure it is compatible with Connecticut College’s systems and network. At this time, Information Services is unable to support Windows 10. IS will continue Windows 10 testing. Once it is determined to be compatible in our environment we will communicate the plan to upgrade college-owned computers.
In the meantime, Microsoft will provide security updates and support for Windows 7 until January 14, 2020. IS will continue to support Windows 7 until the campus roll-out of Windows 10.
The IT Service Desk will make their best effort to assist students on the Windows 10 platform. It is, however, our recommendation that personal computers remain at Windows 7 until bugs are worked out.
As always, please contact the IT Service Desk at Ext. 4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
