Microsoft introduced a new model for updating Windows 10. Instead of a traditional major upgrade cycle every few years, Microsoft has split their updates into three different "branches":

What is certified with EBS?
E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2 are certified with all three Windows 10 service options: Current Branch, Current Branch for Business, and the Long-Term Servicing Branch.

In 2015 we certified the Current Branch (the version released by that date) of Windows 10 with EBS 11i, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2.
EBS 11i and 12.0 are now in Sustaining Support. This means that:
Support implications for EBS 11i and 12.0 customers

We will issue new EBS 12.1 and 12.2 patches only to fix issues reported with Windows 10 updates that can be reproduced with EBS 12.1 and 12.2.
If you are concerned about the ongoing compatibility of your Windows 10 desktops with EBS 11i or 12.0, you should:
