No one reads this crap unless there is a paperwork audit. It often adds no value to quality or anything else.
Not to derail, but Microsoft has gotten involved in drinking the Kool-Aid here too with Windows 10 in the Enterprise. Trying to have a stable managed desktop environment when what amount to major(ish?) OS Upgrades every 6 months is going to be a lot more work than it was in the past when you have critical applications that tend to be fussy at the best of times and you are at the mercy of the vendor when they might release a new version that works on your new OS. The LTSB branch initially sounded interesting until Microsoft basically said it isn't supported for general purpose computing, but basically for ATMs, kiosks and such. Being on CBB only helps from the standpoint that we have some lead time, we still have to deal with the same amount of OS upgrades. It wouldn't be so bad if the updates were minor, but at the rate they're changing/adding features and deprecating others, its not the case. Fall Creators Update is a no-go for us until possibly the end of the year according to one software vendor, and by then we're only a few months from the next Windows 10 build. I would have far preferred if Microsoft marked every second spring update as CBB, but it doesn't appear that skipping forward every n builds is going to be a thing.
