As we are now on the final days before the Anniversary Update rolls out to non-Windows Insiders, it’s worth visiting, or even revisiting, some of the resources that cover what’s new and what’s changed. I’m going to start with one of the topics that has received a bit of attention, which are the changes to Group Policy and MDM settings for Pro versus Enterprise/Education, which started appearing with 1511, but are continuing to change.

We will need to see how this pans out, but from a technology perspective the demonstrations of this technology at Microsoft’s recent Worldwide Partner Conference was something that caught my attention.
