Microsoft to stick with twice-a-year feature updates for Windows 10
Apr 21 2017 by Michele Stevens
Anyway, Microsoft started off with plans to release two feature updates every year for Windows 10 when it was initially released and this calendar year was going to be the first time it would happen since Windows 10 became publicly available. However, Last year the company uncharacteristically ended up rolling out only one, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
What's particularly interesting about that from a Windows 10 users perspective is that Microsoft targets September 2017 for the next Windows 10 feature update, codename Redstone 3.
If Microsoft was churning out worthy feature upgrades in its new versions, it would be a different story.
Microsoft has also released further updates to Office 365 ProPlus in the form of changes to the Office 365 system requirements and new tools and programs to manage ProPlus application compatibility. On the app's Welcome page, you'll see a short demo of all the new things that come with Windows 10 Creators Update.
Similar to the current schedule, Windows 10 feature upgrades will continue to be serviced and supported for 18 months, receiving routine security and cumulative updates.

Elizabeth Thomas was allegedly abducted from Culleoka, Tennessee by her 50-year-old teacher Tad Cummins on March 13 . "I'm glad this is over", 50-year-old Tad Cummins said after his arrest, according to Siskiyou County sheriff's Sgt.
Last month Microsoft announced, in part, on its support forum: "Windows 10 is the only Windows version that is supported on the following processor generations: Intel seventh (7th)-generation processors, AMD "Bristol Ridge" and Qualcomm "8996".
The company justified the move in a statement in which it claimed that, "We've. heard our customers want more predictability and simplicity from this update servicing model to help make deployments and updates of Microsoft products easier". "[That was] essentially a giant middle finger to anyone who dare not "upgrade" to the steaming pile of garbage known as Windows 10". The semiannual feature updates will likely just mark iterative improvements to the operating system, with a few notable new features that help distinguish it from other releases.
We don't know anything else about Redstone 3, but we expect to learn about it at Microsoft's Build developer conference in May.
Microsoft also shared that the Windows 10 System Center Configuration Manager will be prepared to support the updates. To find out more and to apply for your place, check out the IT Leaders Forum website.
