Click here to read it. I've not yet found parallel articles. Wholly agree with Trapper_John's comment in it. Computerworld has one of the nastiest interfaces to use, borks Firefox, so be sure you have Adblock Plus on. The only way you can comment is to turn all cookies to accept and Adblock in all forms off and then refresh the browser several times before you can sign in. Not worth it. Computerworld used to be a good site to read and comment in, during its Disqus days. Now it uses some other very dysfunctional method, just like Infoworld and PC World all do, so reading its articles is much more painful. And, Keizer is no longer an accurate reporter. I don't know what happened to his reporting over the past few months, but apart from financial reporting he's too busy quoting Gartner, who never gets anything right.
As for the article itself, well the obvious answer is, MSFT is doing it wrong AGAIN, this time with respect to Enterprise. No way will Enterprise put up with a mandated four-month acceptance. By contract, they don't have to. So all the speculation is pointless.
Even so, if this represents a new twist in MSFT policy re Win10, then it just signals the death knell. Four months is just not acceptable for an OS which borks so easily. Nor, even were it perfect, as that's too short a window for deployment testing.
I can't believe MSFT would be that dumb, so maybe this article is just speculation and not at all indicative of MSFT policy? Hope springs eternal.
