Microsoft has confirmed that it will use security updates or more accurately, the refusal to serve them to customers as the stick to keep businesses in line with Windows 10’s accelerated tempo of feature and functionality upgrades. Experts had assumed that the company would threaten Windows 10 users with a no-patches policy if they did not keep up with the OS’s constant updates and upgrades. Microsoft has often told customers that if they did not do A or B or Y or Z like migrate to Windows 8.1 Update or dump Internet Explorer 8, they would not receive future vulnerability fixes. Microsoft will let customers who adopt the Current Branch for Business (CBB) postpone deployment of a specific build no more than eight months. Failure to meet that deadline will mean a patch cut-off.
