From this article - http://www.neowin.net/news/retail-eula- ... ws-updates - it looks like the CIO's may not care. The Pro version looks like it will be able to delay updates up to 8 months, and the Enterprise editions almost indefinitely. The ones most affected will be users of the Home edition.
Reading this, my main concern is if MS will have updates scheduled manually respect the update settings chosen in the Pro and Enterprise editions. Ran into trouble with that not happening at a previous job. Updates were turned off automatic because a PC that collected security cam video would have its image database corrupted every time an automatic update ran and rebooted the system. But half the time after the Windows support guys ran updates one or more of them would turn on auto-updating again.
