How quickly do you intend to upgrade your company's computers to Windows 10?
Microsoft will make the Enterprise SKUs available on August 1st for companies wishing to deploy Windows 10 to corporate computers. But, just how quickly do company's intend to deploy Windows 10?
A bigger update this fall (possibly October) should bring more robust business features to Windows 10, so many companies will most likely take a wait-and-see attitude. Its early days, but we're wondering how much thought has already gone into Windows 10 planning.
Take a quick second to participate in the following poll...
Do we need to know what's included in Windows 10 updates?
Over the past month, since the release of the Windows 10 upgrade, Microsoft has delivered four cumulative updates. This quick update pace has been to fix bugs and deliver security updates, but also to expose new features that the company isn't talking about. For consumers, this should be no big deal since they can't opt-out of updates anyway. But, for businesses, this could be a big deal and is yet another thing that Microsoft seems to be "taking away" from IT.
Is having full disclosure of what's included in each update important?
This will mean a significant shift for system admins because these updates will be released in one large update package instead of a collection of individual updates.
That in turn means that if one patch included in the cumulative update causes an issue on a system then the entire package will have to be uninstalled while waiting on a fix instead of just an individual update.
System admins have been talking about this on social media over the last few days and expressing their concerns about this shift so we would like to hear from you on this as well.
