    deferring semi-annual feature updates gone?


    W10 Pro v1903
    I upgraded to v1903 some week ago, and in the delivery settings I selected -as usual- postpone time for further updates/upgrades as long as possible (365 days, resp 35 days).
    Therefore I was surprised that yesterday an automatic update was taking place. That update did not appear in the update history list. But now, the option of deferring upgrades for 365 days is not available anymore.

    :)

    Difference between Semi-Annual Channel and Semi-Annual Channel (targeted) in regards to recent cumulative update

    Semi-annual Channel simply means that you're getting new versions of Windows 10, aka 'feature updates,' when they are released to the public, which happens semi-annually, more or less. This is in comparison to guinea pig testers, aka 'Windows Insiders,'
    who get test versions of feature updates more frequently. The real difference is between Targeted versions and non-Targeted versions.

    First of all, let's admit that if you're a Windows 10 user, you may as well paint a target on your back. But I digress.

    The Targeted version of a feature update is considered (by Microsoft) to be good enough for deployment by large organizations that have professional IT departments with the knowledge to deal with lingering problems that may turn up.

    The non-Targeted or Broad version of a feature update is considered (by Microsoft) to be good enough to be installed by you and me, who don't have the services of a professional IT department to help us.

    Myself, I'm holding out for the Frustration Free version of a feature update, which is considered (by me) to be truly problem free. But I'm not holding my breath.
