Windows 10 upgrade is coming down the pipe in the next year for my organization. Over 10,000 PCs distributed over 5 sites, all have to be done clean install. fuck.

@brandon LTBS or mainline Windows 10? We have a tonne of PCs, most on Win 10, I haven't heard of any meteoric changes coming down the line...


@brandon Oh.

My condolences. To whom should I address the flowers to?

We're in the process of forcing people off of Windows 7 either by automated update or forcing their hand with device upgrades. Either way, it's been a fun* ride.

*: Not fun.

@ndegruchy thank you for the thoughts and prayers 😂

Yeah and it doesn't help that there's over 2000 software loadout configurations

@ndegruchy we are trying to have as many windows 10 deployments but soon we'll have no choice for that either

@brandon I want to say it gets easier, but unless you have someone doing comprehensive policies and testing, it just becomes a mixed bag of "fun".

Maybe advocate for one base standard and build on that?

@ndegruchy Well we do have a "golden master" that we put on and then the task sequence takes over and installs the applications.

Problem is only (rough figures) 16 out of like 106 applications are actually "tested Windows 10 compliant"
