According to the latest information, Windows 10 as a Service will bring updates via three different branches: CB – Current Branch, CBB – Current Branch for Business, and LTSB – Long Term Servicing Branch.
Windows 10 Enterprise users will be able to choose between CBB and LTSB. This option will give business customers a choice that will improve the update experience based on their requirements.
CBB or LTSB?
If you want to be up-to-date, you should choose the CBB branch, which will automatically download new features on PCs that are connected to Windows Update, as well as security patches.
LTSB is an option only for Windows 10 Enterprise users, and it will delay new features delivery for up to 10 years – users will be able to skip updates. Computers on the LTSB will receive only security patches and critical hotfixes.
In addition, Windows 10 Enterprise users on the LTSB branch will not get the Edge on their PCs – the new default internet browser. The main reason is that new features and feature updates for Edge will come out on a regular basis.
