Icecast is a very stable software. And keeping track of all the operating systems and keeping all lists updated can be a bit tricky. So it is often (not just with this project) a good idea to consider those lists as a minimum list. Meaning it will run on what is listed, but it will likely run on many more systems.

Personally I don't even have access to any Windows 10 system. So I can't know for sure. But I would be very surprised if Icecast would not run on it.
