No Win­dows 10 Creators Up­date for you, Mi­crosoft says – at least, not if you hap­pen to be the un­lucky owner of cer­tain older Atom-based Win­dows de­vices, and other ag­ing mod­els in the fu­ture. Af­ter sto­ries arose of failed at­tempts to up­grade such hard­ware to the Creators Up­date, Mi­crosoft con­firmed re­cently that any hard­ware de­vice that falls out of the man­u­fac­turer’s sup­port cy­cle may be in­el­i­gi­ble for fu­ture Win­dows 10 up­dates.
