The recent release of Windows 10 has left many IT execs confused over the support options available. While evaluating the various editions of Windows 10 and the possible upgrade options and timeframes, figuring out the enterprise support options isn’t easy.
Support for Microsoft’s Windows as a Service seems to be based primarily around three service branches. PCs running Windows 10 Home will not have a choice: they’ll receive the Current Branch, and Microsoft will automatically push new features, bug fixes, and security updates to them via Windows Update. But corporate PCs will likely be running Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise, the most expensive edition that’s only available by volume licensing agreements.
