Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows. It was released in July 2015 and till now different build versions of Windows 10 has been released. We have been releasing new feature updates twice a year. Currently, the latest version of Windows 10 is 1809. You can say that Windows 10 will be supported for lifetime, as we have not planned to release a new version of Windows. Therefore, we will be providing updates and support for Windows 10.


The availability of Windows 10 and end of service dates are segmented by build versions. For more information on the support for Windows 10 build versions, you can refer the article Windows lifecycle fact sheet.


If you want to upgrade to Windows 10 you can purchase it from Microsoft Store.


I would also suggest you to check the system requirements for Windows 10. Please refer the articles Windows 10 system requirements and How to Find Windows 10 Computer Specifications & Systems Requirements to know the system requirements.
