I don't have Windows 10 Pro right now, I want to get it soon though, but I need to be prepared for this.

 

According to Microsoft's website, a quality update can be delayed up to 30 days. So If an update is released on week 1, then another on week 2, etc. then all this group policy does is delay these things as if they were released a month later? Or can I delay each update individually? Also, is the 30 days time frame long enough to ensure that a particular Windows 10 (quality) update is not buggy?

For the life of me I can not understand why anyone would want to delay a quality update. I can see delaying a feature update but the quality updates need to be installed right away for a reason, usually security.

After reading this I actually feel the same as you do.
