Microsoft says that the release of Windows 10 Threshold 2 Update for its latest operating system, Windows 10, finally makes it ready for business users, and that the update includes a handful of new features for the purposes of this customer category.

Windows Update service for Business version of Windows 10 is different than on a Pro/Home version of the system. It allows business users to have full control over the incoming updates that are deployed on their computers, with advanced tools not only for managing deployment, but also for delaying updates that are likely to have a negative effect on the overall system performance.

It is well known that some of the updates for Windows operating systems released in the last couple of years (including the latest Windows 10 Fall Update) have actually caused some troubles for the users, and that’s because IT admins who are maintaining PCs of a company don’t always want to install new updates. And many of them prefer to wait a little until the development team from Microsoft resolves the issues that come with the new update.

You probably already know that Microsoft has changed the way updates are distributed to users, as people who are running Home version of Windows 10 will get everything automatically. But users of Enterprise version will get a special tools that allow them to wait up to 8 months until they install the new update for Windows 10.

“Windows Update for Business provides IT controls over the deployment of updates within their organizations, while ensuring their devices are kept current and their security needs are met, at reduced management cost. Features include setting up device groups with staggered deployments and scaling deployments with network optimizations,” Microsoft explains.

Windows 10 Threshold 2 Update finally brings the possibility to defer updates, but Home users are again left out of this. As it appears, they even serve as Microsoft’s objects for experimenting, because Windows 10 Threshold 2 Update caused more problems for some users, than it brought useful features and improvements.
