Windows 10 20H2 today reaches end of the support

However, customers still have a time frame to get updates for Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions for one more year.  Microsoft will support these OS variants until May 9, 2023.

Windows 10 20H2 holds a relatively small portion of market. For eligible devices Microsoft already offers Windows 11. Users who prefer to stay on Windows 10 may go further with its latest version 21H2.

Actually, Windows 10, version 20H2 and 21H2 are built on the same base inherited from their predecessor, version 2004. All three releases have the same set of system files. To transition the older one to the newer one, Microsoft releases small "enablement packages" to activate the appropriate features and functions. The list of new features aren't big, and turning your 20H2 setup to 21H2 will be fast and smooth.

Windows 20H2 was the first version to include a Chroimum-based Edge version out of the box. It was a major update with many UX improvements. You may read about them here: What’s new in Windows 10 version 20H2.
