The statement by PIRG is as follows:

“Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Don't junk millions of computers. The decision to end support for Windows 10 could push the number of junk computers to an all-time high and make it impossible for Microsoft to meet its sustainability goals. 40% of PCs in use could be left behind due to new versions of OS's strict hardware requirements.

Microsoft's decision to end support for millions of functional computers used in hospitals, businesses, and homes is a huge disappointment for customers who expect their expensive devices to last a long time. That's it.

All software reaches end-of-life at some point, but we shouldn't accept it when the environmental impact is so great.'
