We plan to support each version/update for 12 months before we require that customers upgrade to the latest one to continue support.Finally we do intend to ship a version aligned with the rest of System Center and Windows Server when they ship in 2016.As mentioned above, updates to Windows can also be downloaded individually from Microsoft Download Center and then installed manually.
If you have all updates already downloaded and installed up to that point in time, you will not see any available updates.
Important: Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP, nor versions of Windows that preceded it.
Windows updates can solve specific problems with Windows, provide protection from malicious attacks, or even add new features to the operating system.
Windows updates are most easily installed using the Windows Update service.
Moving faster with System Center Configuration Manager will allow you to take advantage of the very latest feature innovations in Windows 10, as well as other operating systems such as Apple i OS and Android when using Configuration Manager integrated with Microsoft Intune for mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) capabilities.
