"Businesses are seeing significant value, enhanced security and improved productivity with Windows 10 today", said Microsoft's Michael Niehaus.

The Anniversary release, version 1607, has been designated as available to Windows 10 machines that receive updates under the Current Branch for Business (CBB) servicing option. The bug is possibly a backdoor for kept open while testing the Windows 10 update by Microsoft Engineers, which they forgot to close. Businesses rolling out Windows 10 include the Australian Department of Human Services, Hendrick Motorsports and Crystal Group of Companies. The Current Branch for Business designation is awarded about four months after the Current Branch of Windows is publicly released.

The growth experienced by Windows 10 slowed down in the last few months and almost stagnated in October, when it improved from 22.53 percent to only 22.59 percent, but it appears that the operating system is once again improving at a faster pace. The previous Insider build for PC was 14971, which was released on November 17. Microsoft lists a number of other changes, improvements, and fixes in this build, including a new rendering technology for UWP which may result in some visual glitches, the ability of third party alarms to ignore Quiet Hours, new notification settings, OAuth support for Yahoo Mail accounts for improved sync reliability, and more.

Over the summer, Microsoft began pushing out the Windows 10Anniversary Update to consumer PCs (and the Xbox One). Likely, it takes management software, such as Windows Server Update Services or System Center Configuration Manager, to have these update deferral capabilities.

Windows 10 Anniversary CBB Update will be available via Windows Update in this coming January 2017. "The LTSB-version of Windows 10 is not affected by this as it doesn't automatically do upgrades", Laiho says.
