According to recent research conducted by Canalys Research, the decision by Microsoft to discontinue support for the Windows 10 operating system could have significant consequences. Approximately 240 million computers worldwide could become electronic waste once the user support and security updates for this operating system cease.

If these computers end up in landfills, it would contribute to a massive burden of electronic waste weighing approximately 480 thousand tons. While technically these devices could still function for a few more years, Canalys Research warns of the potential decrease in user interest in working with computers that no longer receive security updates.

Microsoft has already announced its plan to provide security updates for devices using the Windows operating system. However, support for Windows 10 is expected to be discontinued from October 2025, which has prompted this new research on the potential consequences of this decision.

How can one prepare for this change? What is the proper way to recycle old computers? What are the possible alternative operating systems that users can switch to after the discontinuation of support for Windows 10? These studies raise many questions about the sustainability of technological devices and the needs of users in the digital era.
