New versions of Windows 11 will be released once per year

  • Staff
It seems Microsoft is stepping back from twice-yearly updates, the following is from the Window 11 lifecycle documents.

Windows 11​

What is the servicing timeline for a version (feature update) of Windows 11?​

New versions of Windows 11 will be released once per year. Customers should always install the latest version before the current version reaches end of servicing to remain supported by Microsoft.
TABLE 1
EditionServicing timeline (one release per year)
Windows 11 Enterprise
Windows 11 Education
Windows 11 IoT Enterprise
36 months from release date
Windows 11 Pro
Windows 11 Pro Education
Windows 11 Pro for Workstations
Windows 10 Home 1
24 months from release date
1Home edition does not support the deferral of feature updates and will therefore typically receive a new version of Windows 11 prior to the end-of-servicing date shown.

Good...seems Microsoft took my advice, although I'm sure mine was anything but unique...;) Once a year is fine!

Once a year makes a lot of sense.. there's no need to update more frequently.

And it gives more time to work out the pesky bugs that they always have to fix.

I'm all for it.

Me too.. it's more logical to do it this way. While I like new versions I don't need an update more that one time a year

I wouldn't complain at every two years for major updates. Take more time to develop new features and technologies to include, and spend more time fixing bugs. Because, this is Microsoft, so bugs are going to happen. lol.

besides, I've seen yearly updates for other OSs and some work, while some .... work not as well (I'm looking at you, Google, with your yearly Android updates....10/Q and 11/R - no major (UI) changes there, until the current 12/S...)

IMHO, Release builds should not be on a time schedule. New builds should only be released when MS feels they are ready and not just to meet a time line. With that said, I'll be using Insider builds on at least two of my computers. If I'm satisfied with the Insider releases I may run Insider builds on all three of my devices. I have two desktops and one laptop. I'm not going to upgrade my wife's laptop until windows 11 is released to the general public. That is if it's capable of running Win 11. I haven't check it yet.

Seeing that the Spring releases seemed to have degraded to little more than Enablement Packages, once is year is really what they are using today -- so making it official is not a big surprise.

Why is the Home version still called Windows 10 in this schedule? And what's the difference between W11 and W11 Pro (especially, W11 Education and W11 Pro Education :unsure:)?

Since Win11 security features are aimed directly at corporate and government systems, a once-a-year upgrade makes sense. Too many hacked systems were due to the lack of installing updates. Making it an annual chore for admin along with security updates pushed to the users means that it is more likely to be done.

Eh - three was no real need because there were already things in place to ensure corporate and enterprise IT admins could control when and how updates were deployed to their corp owned machines. They also provide LTSC builds for use in hte corp / ent world anyway, so the only updates IT admins had to worry about were the sec patches, not useless cruft like user experience updates and new features.

Not complaining - I don't mind a year either. I think things will be more polished and less ... buggy.

How much you want to bet that in 6 months after Win 11 is released they change their mind and start releasing major updates every 6 months, They changed their mind about Win 10 will last forever now it's going EOL in 4 years.

I won't take that bet, even though I don't believe this will happen.

What can ya say... that's just the... digital life. :D

lmfao....so true.

And it gives more time to work out the pesky bugs that they always have to fix.

I'm all for it.
So instead of bug being detected 6 months, it now takes a year to fix it. I am all against it.

They are talking about new builds of Win11, I believe. Bug fixes and so on will continue to be addressed through Windows Update, just as they were in Win10, I'd imagine.
