The New Windows 10 Features You Need to Know About

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...


Which Windows 10 Updating Method Will Your Company Choose?

CB, CBB, LTSB. Each of these updating methods for Windows 10 provide their own unique value. Which method is right for your company?

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?

 


Is Microsoft on track with their upcoming Windows 10 Enterprise features?

 

Last week we shared details about both the upcoming enhancements for Windows Update for Business and Windows 10 Enterprise.

These new features will all be tested in a fresh build of Windows 10 Enterprise which will be distributed to those on the Windows Insider program in the next couple of months.

With at least 1.5 million installations of Windows 10 Enterprise already, there should be plenty of telemetry and feedback about these new features?

Is there a specific feature you are looking forward to trying out more than the others when these hit Insider machines?

 

 


Do you agree or disagree with Microsoft's new servicing plan for Windows?

 

Microsoft has revealed their plans to provide monthly cumulative updates for Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2 beginning this October.

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.

Do you agree or disagree with the changes being made by Microsoft and their servicing plans for supported versions of Windows? What are the pros and cons in your eyes to the new procedure?

Vote Agree or Disagree and then let us know in the comments what influenced your decision.
