  • Keizer: PatchLady: Win10 upgrades aren’t worth the effort, per poll

    Gregg Keizer at Computerworld has another look at Susan Bradley’s latest poll.

    A majority of IT administrators polled this summer said that the twice-a-year Windows 10 feature upgrades are not useful – or rarely so – a stunning stance considering how much effort Microsoft puts into building the updates.

    About 58% of nearly 500 business professionals who are responsible for servicing Windows at their workplaces said that Windows 10 feature upgrades – two annually, one each in the spring and fall – were either not useful (24%) or rarely useful (34%)…

    “Microsoft spends the greatest amount of development in releasing these twice-a-year feature releases and … enterprises are not rolling them out fast enough to take advantage of them,” noted Bradley in an email reply to questions.
