Windows as a Service

I where at the MMS this year, a really good conference about CM, Windows 10, Client management and much more. One of the sessions was about Windows 10.
I decided to explain a little more, because I think its important.

First thing first. Microsoft releasing CB (Current Branch) of Windows 10 two times each year. Like you see below here.

As you see here its alot of testing before releasing to Windows update. So your private PC getting the CB when it touches the red color.2017-09-04 12_05_46-Windows 10  -  Skyddad vy - PowerPoint.png

Patching in Windows 7, almost every company just patches Critical and Security. 2017-09-04 12_08_19-Windows 10  -  Skyddad vy - PowerPoint.png

But in Windows 10, you cant choose. They release ONE big update every month, called Quality Updates. And a Feature Update every 6 month.

How do you patch best practice nowdays? Two types of Pilot groups.
1. Lab machines
2. Early Adopters, Volenteers, IT
Then go to the rest of your customers.

Biggest question, How much time each pilot group, Best practice is like this.

Its a new way of thinking. Think everyone should know this. So we all talk the same language when we speak about Windows 10.
