The age of six-monthly Windows Server updates starts … now!

One of the systems I worked on needed around 6 months of integration and testing before an OS upgrade. All the different 3rd parties had to buy into the work. Some were really reluctant to even do any cursory testing. We did OS updates every 18 months. These were systems that were air gapped from the internet btw.

I forsee lots of Admins just sat 'Meh' and carry on with the annual updates if that.

Once a system is running properly the old saying, 'If it ain't broke then don't fix it' rules.
