Microsoft changed its ways on many positive levels with the newest version of the world’s most popular desktop operating system, letting owners of genuine Windows 7 and 8 copies board the 10 bandwagon for free, and promising and delivering more frequent updates as part of a revised “OS as a service” code.
The Technical Preview program also formed a stronger sense of community and helped iron out bugs before they reached the masses, but on the not so bright side of things, Windows 10 updates were often forced on users who maybe wanted to wait, just because Redmond’s engineers felt they were good for them.
Worse yet, it’s been impossible to know beforehand what you’re getting with so-called “cumulative updates”, as changelogs were cryptic to non-existent. But that’s bound to change now by popular demand, with a Windows 10 update history website all set up and ready to answer your questions.
For instance, if you’re wondering what the 10586.104 system bump brings to the table, full details on “quality improvements and security fixes” are provided at the source link below. Microsoft also makes it clear “no new operating system features are being introduced this month”, just enhanced security in the Windows kernel and a number of patches for bugs ranging from authentication, Edge browsing, Store app installs, Windows 10 Mobile, Internet Explorer 11, and taskbar.
Don’t forget to revisit the webpage as new updates are released, with “regular refreshes” promised, and a full disclosure policy instated.
