Can we expect to see Enablement Packages in all future Win10 releases, or will it be something to expect more with the Fall release only? My employer would be more likely to embrace the spring release if we knew the upcoming fall release could be upgraded to the next build in minutes instead of a 1-2 hour in-place upgrade. Because of the amount of time to upgrade per device, we favor the fall release with 30 months of support instead of the spring release with 18 months.

Delivering the Windows 10, version 1909 feature updates via an Enablement Package is somewhat of an "experiment." There isn't a formal plan in place to deliver future releases in this same way. We are closely monitoring feedback and hoping to learn from this type of release to help influence our future plans. Thank you for your feedback!

@wpatton Here's some feedback: Don't know if it works at scale yet but I _love_ the user experience.

@bdam55 - I totally agree with you Bryan, the user experience is outstanding. We just upgraded a v1903 Surface Laptop in just 6 min with the v1909 Enablement Package! I definitely would like to see this offered for every Fall Release. Add all the cool new features in the Spring release, then allow for quick upgrades in the fall.
