Windows Update Déjà Vu, Though They Claim It Is Brand New
Remember When Not Every Update Was A Secret?
Rejoice Windows 10 users, for we will be seeing a return of sanity to Windows Update thanks to a ‘brand new’ feature coming soon to Windows 10. No longer will the contents of updates be obfuscated but will instead be broken out into security updates, driver and feature updates, as well as monthly non-security quality updates. There will even be a brand new page under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > View optional updates so your security updates will not be hidden amongst them.
Consider this return to the old normal a great victory for yourself and for all those whom have registered complaints, such as The Inquirer.
Oh, my days, Microsoft. Thank f*** for that. We'd love to say "it was INQ wot won it" but the truth is the vast majority of our colleagues in the media and the user base of Windows have been saying with one voice that the way Windows Update was being managed was shockingly bad, and we can only hope this is the first step on the road to recovery
