    It can be setup to use "Windows Update For Business". When setup like that the IT person picks and choses what updates get pushed to PC's and when if ever. Windows 10 Education has the same option for Schools, Collages etc.
    Hi there

    Thanks for the info.

    Note a lot of businesses who give employee laptops load the PRO rather than the Enterprise versions so I assume that the Long term maintenance stuff applies also to Windows Pro editions --- situation seems still unclear at present.

    Also one would hope that New / replacement laptops bought say after 2 years would still be able to get the Original (unmodified original install from I.T admin) Windows version - otherwise during the currency of the program you'd have loads of PC's all at different levels of maintenance etc.

    Business users are different from individuals who can decide to roll back something whenever they like.

    Cheers

    Nice to know, not that I'm likely to get in that situation.
    Me neither, I'm currently running Enterprise but don't have access to Windows Update for Business. At some point I'm going to have a look at the Windows 10 Education version. It also has Windows to Go which is why I installed Enterprise in the first place. I have an MSDN subscription so I get to play around with the different versions.

    Have a look here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_editions if its accurate Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education have access to LTSB. I'm still trying to figure it all out myself. I haven't found any good links to actual Microsoft info though. You can still control updates even if not in LTSB. LTSB just means no new upgrades, no new features etc. That's how I read. Corporations have always had control over what updates get installed and when. If they have a corporate network setup etc. Enterprise, Education and Pro versions should be configurable to revive updates only from the corporate update server.

    EDIT: Was looking at wrong row of chart Education is not LTSB.

    Everything else is pretty well a moot point for home users but HW drivers updates must be controllable by default and only availability of them to be shown. Automatic roll back of drivers in situations when they prevent booting or display should also be provided specially if MS insists on automatic updates of drivers. Many examples exist in this and other forums when wrong drivers caused a boot loop or black screen.

    Totally agree, driver updates should not be mandatory. If anything is going to hose your system, its a bad driver update.

    Dev Exclusive How Microsoft built, and is still building, Windows 10

    Emil Protalinski August 13, 2015 9:20 AM

    Windows 10 for PCs arrived two weeks ago. Thankfully, we donít need to wait years to say this will be a Microsoft operating system release like no other.
    The most obvious clue is not the fact that Windows 10 was installed on more than 14 million devices in 24 hours, that you can get it for cheap or upgrade to it for free, nor even that it ships with a digital assistant and a proper browser. No, the big deal here is that Microsoft is turning its OS into a service, and that means as you read these words, itís still being built.
    For the next few years, weíll be getting not just Windows 10 updates and patches, but new improvements and features. This is possible because Microsoft built this version very differently from all its previous releases.

    PS.
    Just run into this article and it answered at least some questions for me.
    Nice to learn!
