Our goal overall with the changes that we made to the Windows as a service terminology was simple: Make it easier to understand. As for the old “Current Branch” and “Current Branch for Business” terms, just forget them and focus on these simple ideas:
- Windows 10 will have new features updates released to the Semi-Annual Channel twice per year, around March and September.
- Each feature update will be serviced for 18 months from the date of release.
- Office 365 ProPlus is doing the same thing.
If you understand those points, then you understand the terminology – the focus then should be on the process that you need to go through, the tools that are available to help, etc. For that, start with the http://aka.ms/waas documentation, as well as the Microsoft Mechanics video on YouTube.
