Windows 10 has many new editions and a new branch-based update model

Microsoft recently announced the various editions Windows 10 will be available in and not only are there many editions but there is a reason why they exist. Microsoft has switched over from the classic operating system model of upgrades to delivering small updates to the existing codebase. Mainstream users will no longer get control over updates as the OS is continuously updated. Windows 10 will have different editions and each edition will be based on a different servicing/updating branch. Let's explore which editions Windows 10 will have and how updates will be delivered to those editions.
