Microsoft fixes Windows 10 upgrade tempo and timing to placate enterprises

Microsoft yesterday announced it will target March and September as the launch months for all upcoming Windows 10 feature upgrades, a return to regularity that has been demanded by enterprise customers.

“We’ve … heard our customers want more predictability and simplicity from [the Windows 10] update servicing model to help make deployments and updates of Microsoft products easier,” said Bernardo Caldas, general manager of Windows marketing, in a Thursday post to a company blog.

To make that happen, Caldas said, Microsoft is committing to a twice-annual release schedule for the operating system’s feature upgrades, and will aim for code finalization and launch in March and September — six-month intervals.

Windows 10’s most recent upgrade, labeled “Creators Update” as well as 1703 — the latter in Microsoft’s yymm format — was initially available April 5 and began reaching some customers via Windows Update on April 11. Under the new schedule, the year’s second feature upgrade should appear in or around September.
