Microsoft issues green light for Windows 10 2004. (But what’s the point?)
Microsoft last week gave the green light for Windows 10 2004, signaling to commercial customers that the May 2020 feature upgrade is now reliable enough for them to widely deploy.
“Windows 10, version 2004 is designated for broad deployment,” Microsoft stated in a terse message posted to the Windows release health hub. “The recommended servicing status is Semi-Annual Channel.”
Microsoft has taken to relying on the phrase “broad deployment” to tell enterprise IT administrators that it’s time to roll out a previously-released feature upgrade. It did the same in May 2020, when it vetted Windows 10 1909 as ready for business.
