Come to find out, the end of support date has been known since before the release of date of Windows 10 (July 29, 2015).  From Support for Windows 10 Will Last Until 2025, published July 20, 2015:

Microsoft today said that its next OS release will have official support for the customary 10 years.

An update on the company's Windows lifecycle fact sheet Web site showed that official extended support for Windows 10 will end on Oct. 14, 2025 and mainstream support will conclude five years earlier on Oct. 13, 2020.

Interesting.   My understanding had been Windows 10 would be an ongoing "Windows as a service", without formally "advancing" to a newer version. Whether the next generation is known as Win 11 or SunValley, I wonder if Microsoft will allow (dare I say, encourage) then-existing Win10 users to freely upgrade?

IE was a good browser.  There are still things I miss about it when compared to other browsers.  But Edge has also become a good browser.  I prefer it over Chrome on my Windows computers.

Chrome isn't terrible, but if I could have Edge instead of Chrome on my Chromebook, I'd like it better.

I got a Chromebook when the plastic on my old Dell Windows laptop literally started falling apart, and after the plastic on the lid broke all the way through, causing the LCD to flex terribly when opening/closing.

The reason I ended up with a Chromebook was because of the currently ridiculously high prices for Windows laptops.  To get a  Windows laptop similar to what I got my wife for $420 in 2019 would cost around $650 +/- today.
