OS Patches beyond April 2016? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've seen a number of people claim on WHS/Home server sites that since WHS2011 is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, that while the home server applications will be going out of support in about 4 months, the underlying OS will continue to be patched for the remainder of Server 08 R2's lifespan (till January 2020).  While that claim does sound reasonable, I'm hoping to find official confirmation somewhere of the fact.  (Without waiting until May and seeing if my box downloads patches to install.)
