Post Build Conference and on the eve of the Microsoft Ignite show in Chicago next week, there has been an increase in news reports, articles, blog posts, and opinions about the star of the show Windows 10. One message that has been pretty consistent is the agile update cadence that will follow the release of the OS. Here are a few that caught our attention.
"Enterprises will have to rethink the way they evaluate Microsoft operating systems, since Windows 10 may never really be done."
"Before Windows 10 has even launched, Microsoft’s upgrade plans for the OS have leaked. Operating under the codename “Redstone”, the Windows maker will issue updates in two waves…the first will come June 2016 and the other October of next year."
Some of Flexera's biggest customers have already started planning and they are being motivated by the need to move more of their devices from 32 to 64-bit apps, and the ability to run Windows 10 across all their devices. They feel like Win10 will be the last “big release” and want to automate their Application Readiness process to be ready for the feature update releases that will start to come more quickly.
