I wish the article had included a paragraph that cut through the sales channel BS and just told us whether regular users could get the updates and how much it would cost.
It sounds like those with an Office 365 subscription from Microsoft arent eligible while those who bought one from a reseller such as GoDaddy are eligible...? IOW wtf is a CSP and how to contact one?
Will the updates be available via 3rd party tools such as WSUS-Offline Update?
Did anyone ever check into the workings of its back-end cloud server, as to whether it was derived from some open-source system? Perhaps it could be replaced with a bit of patching at each client or a redirect at the router. Or, would be nice if someone were to leak the code and diy peeps could have a little fun.
Some of the large printers/copiers/scanners used by small offices (and commonly leased from 3rd parties with little or no config support) have SMB1 as a default scan to pc method. There are workarounds such as usb stick or email or ftp of course, but it takes a while to figure out why something that worked for 5 years suddenly doesnt. Users and techs like to blame it on Windows 10 updates, and they would be correct in this case.
