The Windows 10 October 2019 update (1809) was one of Microsoft’s bumpiest releases, but now, 6 months after hitting RTM, the operating system is pretty robust and time tested.

Tested by consumers that is, and today Microsoft announced to enterprise users that the operating system is now ready for “broad deployment.”

The blog post notes:

Based on the data and the feedback we’ve received from consumers, OEMs, ISVs, partners, and commercial customers, Windows 10, version 1809 has transitioned to broad deployment.

Our readers will recall Windows 10 1809 suffered two infamous data loss bugs – one involving zip files and one involving OneDrive folders, and the news is a reminder that Microsoft is much more careful with their enterprise customers than home users.

Windows 10 189 will receive 30 months of support from its  November 13th release date and per the Windows lifecycle fact sheet.
