Microsoft Product Lifecycle Search

I get a lot of questions about the lifetime and end of support of multiple Microsoft products (especially about one you probably heard of before… Silverlight Knipogende emoticon).

So how do you know how long Microsoft will officially support a product or technology?

It’s not a secret. You only have to browse to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle Search Page and search the product or technology.

Let’s do the test with Silverlight 5:

So now it’s official… Silverlight 5 is dead in 2021. I guess that gives you the time you need to upgrade…
