The decision by Microsoft to end user support for the Windows 10 operating system could have a significant impact on the amount of electronic waste generated worldwide. According to an analysis conducted by Canalys Research, approximately 240 million computers could end up discarded, resulting in an additional 480,000 tons of electronic waste.
