Microsoft expands Windows 7-to-Windows 10 app compatibility pledge

From ComputerWorld: Microsoft this week announced that an application compatibility guarantee it gave to enterprises migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 has gone global.

The "Desktop App Assure" program, which launched in October and was then available in North America only, has been expanded to all markets, Brad Anderson, the executive who leads the Microsoft 365 group, said in a post to a company blog.

"We've heard loud and clear that one of the most important considerations for shifting to a modern desktop is application compatibility, and we've done a massive amount of work to ensure that Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus are now the most compatible upgrades ever," Anderson said.

App Assure is a benefit to customers who subscribe to Windows 10 or Microsoft 365, both which come in E3 and E5 plans. The service is available to those who purchase 150 or more licenses of an eligible plan.
