Microsoft last week fulfilled a promise made in May to give businesses the tools to delay Windows 10 feature upgrades for up to a year after consumers begin running the operating system’s latest changes.
New options for controlling the arrival of Windows 10 upgrades arrived within Windows 10 version 1511, the refresh that began rolling out Nov. 12. The settings are available to individuals, businesses and organizations running Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education that manage PCs with the Windows Update for Business (WUB) service Microsoft introduced earlier this year.
With Windows 10 1511, Microsoft has delivered all the big pieces of Windows Update for Business. The new WUB controls appeared earlier than Computerworld had anticipated, based on comments Microsoft made in August.
