Windows 10 servicing cycle revised for the better

I just want to mention you do not miss this article which explains the revised Windows 10 servicing.

Actually its for the better. So MS extended the mainstream support for another 6 months in terms of servicing and support. Plus another 6 month paid servicing only. So you get one more year quality updates if you want.

Just to clarify what servicing and support means:
  • With servicing you receive public available quality updates. This does not include private hotfixes if needed.
  • Support means you can also call in and get potentially a private fix if its a bug. And it includes the quality updates from servicing as well.
But this additional servicing is limited to Enterprise and Education only!Another reason not to use Pro Version ;-)
