With Windows 10, Microsoft is changing the traditional Windows model and goes towards Windows as a Service, which is a new concept that would bring users updates at a faster pace, when they are ready.
In a slide presented by Microsoft and spotted by DigitalTrends, Microsoft explains why Windows as a Service is a such a great project, pointing out the main advantages that it brings to consumers, business users, and special systems.
Windows as a Service will install updates on consumer devices “as they arrive,” the company explains, which is pretty much another way of saying that as soon as development of new updates is completed, they are automatically shipped to your computer, so you won’t have to wait for a specific release date to get them.
This means that Windows as a Service would help “keeping hundreds of millions of consumers up to date,” Microsoft adds, and “the large and diverse user base should help drive quality of the OS updates.”
And last but not least, for consumers, BYOD devices should also be up to date and secure, the software firm guarantees, so Patch Tuesday would become a much more effective concept with Windows 10.
