The newly announced synchronized twice-a-year pace puts a big crimp in historic Win10 development cycles
Somehow I don't suspect this will stay in plan.. Perhaps I need to clean or get new glasses...??

Here's another site discussing this:
The impact this has on businesses (who can't always upgrade as rapidly as Microsoft would like for various security, financial, testing/compatibility, and other reasons) would be significant. I can't imagine that shove it down their throats philosophy would remain in place. Far too aggressive.
Thanks for sharing...
Convert to LINUX?
Businesses are still operating on Microsoft products? Good grief, it is 2017.
They meant businesses that have all infrastructure built on MS platform. Not tiny business with two computers and internet connection.
If you have system using MS Exchange, SharePoint, Dynamics, plus Office documents with built-in extra capabilities via VBA what do you think will be the cost to redesign whole system for - for example - Linux solutions? You can be sure it's Cost with capital C.
Most people is under impression, that if they put free Linux distro on their home computer it is as simple for even middle size business. But you have to realize that even if they will not pay for software they will pay for tech support. Because they have no time to spend on researching internet for solutions for potential problems.
For business every minute when system doesn't work have real cost in money.
Exactly. There are thousands and thousands of small businesses that will not even upgrade to W10. Why bother, W7 will get security fixes to 2020 (or so, forgot the exact date). They will only go to W10 when current equipment needs replacing. Then they will have a major headache.
Most of the ones I deal with will NEVER put any of their documents in the cloud either.
MS seems to think that everyone will flock to the subscription fee and cloud storage. I seriously doubt if the BIG business will ever do that. They will negotiate with MS, or whoever, so they get a corporate license that is not cloud based.
The so-called features of W10 are not business oriented. They are for "playtime", which is the market MS has the most hope for the steady stream of cash flow.
Linux for Major corporations and small business is too big a change and costly.
Small businesses and local governments won't upgrade/update on this type of schedule. Can't afford to. Don't have the support staff or resources.
Just what we don't need!
