In computer operating system and other software products, the term “End of Life” or EOL refers to product support which can include regular releases of product updates like Service Packs, security updates, and customer assistance.

This means when an operating system, like Windows XP for example, reaches End of Life, everything will be cut off like no new releases of Service Packs, security patches will no longer be provided, and no customer assistance will be accepted. Though support will be discontinued, your product or the operating system will continue to function and work on your computer.

Reaching End of Life doesn’t have an effect on the functioning of the operating system. With Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2, support ended on January 14, 2020. This means regular security updates have also ended.
