With Windows 10, the update approach is set to change substantially. Microsoft is acknowledging the need, and even desirability, of making regular incremental improvements to its operating system. It’s also, however, acknowledging the different appetite for change between consumers and enterprise users.
While all users, both enterprise and otherwise, will be using the same core operating system, for the first time, there will be different update policies for different kinds of user. The old fiction of not making feature changes to a shipping operating system is finally being put to bed.
A very sensible move in the current computing environment. I wonder if regular users, too, can opt for the slower update policy. There’s a UI for the settings in the Windows 10 Technical Preview, but it’s non-functional.
