Software Center operating system upgrade warning

What is happening? As part of the continuous upgrade process for Windows 10, MFCF will be advertising a managed upgrade via System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) for Windows 10 workstations that are joined to Nexus.  The advertisement will allow you to select when the upgrade applies. Machines running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 are not affected. If your machine is already running release 1709, you won’t see the upgrade.
