Lock-down mode in Windows 10 will help businesses to update at their own pace

As we’re are hearing, Windows 10 is setting to be the last version of the operating system Microsoft will offer, as the company will focus on updating and pushing new features only to Windows 10. But because of the plan to release rapid updates and pushing new changes could cause compatibility issues with business software, Microsoft will offer two modes to access updates: opt-in and lock-down.

The opt-in mode will be aimed for home users, who will allow to get access to new features, fixes, and security patches as they are ready.

The lock-down mode, on the other hand, will be for businesses and it will only limit to regular updates to prevent compatibility issues with businesses configurations.

Though, it’s unclear yet how businesses will push new features when they are ready to deploy. Nonetheless, it’s good to hear that Microsoft will offer an opt-in and lock-down mode to keep moving forward and making everyone happy in the process.
