    Windows 1703 pro and Windows Update for Business


    I have a Windows 10 pro 1703 desktop and i found update options in

    Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options

    to select between

    Configure devices for Current Branch (CB)

    Current Branch for Business (CBB)

    Device is on CB:
    DeferFeatureUpdatesPeriodinDays=30 Feature Update X is first publically available on Windows Update
    as a CB in January. Device will not receive update until February, 30 days later.

    Device is on CBB:
    DeferFeatureUpdatesPeriodinDays=30 Feature Update X is first publically available
    on Windows Update as a CB in January. Four months later, in April,
    eature Update X is released to CBB. Device will receive the Feature Update 30 days
    following this CBB release and will update in May.

    I found this feature would be really useful for my use case,

    now the ultimate question is:

    as a Windows 10 pro user am i entitled to use this "Windows Update for Business"
    or does this apply only to "volume license/corporate/enterprise" license?

    thanks for your help.
    Roy.

    Well.. CBB is for LTSB ... not sure how Pro gets it - Do you have a volume licence?

    If you want feature updates then switch, dunno why that option is available tho'?

    Yup.. if offered why not? ...

    MS may have changed the forced updates that's all.. the "for Business" may change to something else for non-Business users.
