Well, the article talks about the "set it and forget it" approach to deployment which, to my way of thinking, isn't a valid approach at all.
I used to work at places that took this approach and it is at least as fraught, if not more so, than the new one. The article also doesn't seem to take into account the much tighter degree of control Windows 10 Enterprise allows over updating and most large organizations will be using Enterprise.
There is no perfect system and, as a Windows user both at home and office (when I was still working "in the office" for someone else), it used to frustrate me to no end when fixes that had been applied months to years (and, yes, there were a few examples of that) ago were simply refused by the IT powers that be.
There are pluses and minuses to both the old updating system and the new one. As the article notes the new one is not going away and has, in fact, been applied under Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. In life you've got to play the cards you're dealt.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
