Surface Book -- Why the news about #Windows10Devices is a big deal

Should Microsoft provide more detailed information with their routine Cumulative Updates for Windows 10?

 

It seems the only topic discussed more on social media than privacy in Windows 10 is whether or not Microsoft should provide more details about what is fixed and updated in the Cumulative Updates for the new operating system.

Since its release nearly a month ago four different routine updates have been released for Windows 10.

The accompanying knowledge base articles that were released with those updates were devoid of any detail beyond the phrase  This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10.” 

Is that enough for you?

I wrote about this recently from a consumer, enthusiast and IT Pro perspective as did Rod from a business point of view and it is a discussion that is far from over for the fledgling Windows 10 OS.

We want to hear from you and learn is this something you can get used to or is this a road that Microsoft should do a u-turn on immediately?

 


What feature are you most excited about in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

 

Last week at Build 2016 Microsoft revealed details about the next major update to Windows 10 and showed off several new features that are expected when this Anniversary Update is released in July of this year.

This week they followed that keynote demo up with the first post Build 2016 Windows 10 Insider Preview (Build 14316) to those testers in the Fast Ring. This one is full of new features and it is the most feature rich testing update we have had in quite a while for Windows 10.

So with all of these new features that were announced last week plus those that are now present in Windows 10 Build 14316, we want to know which of them are you most looking forward to when the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is released this summer?

 


Have you rolled back from Windows 10?

The most popular page on our website is the one about how to prevent the Windows 10 upgrade, and we see plenty of questions from people who have installed Windows 10 and regret it. So we want to know: Have YOU tried Windows 10 and then shied back? Why?


Is the Windows 10 Anniversary Update Ready for Release?

 

The second major update to Windows 10, known as the Anniversary Update, will begin its roll out to a wide variety of devices including desktops, tablets, mobile, Xbox One, HoloLens and Surface Hub on 02 August.

It has picked up several new features with a focus on Windows Inking, Security, and improvements to Cortana. Of course, there are also numerous tweaks and under the hood updates as well to improve the look and performance of the OS.

Since Windows 10 was initially released in July of 2015, Microsoft has collected over 75 million pieces of feedback that have resulted in more than 5,000 fixes and improvements to the year old operating system.

That feedback from Windows Insiders, the incredible amount of usage by those testers - more than 18 million days worth, and the 50 testing builds released for this update since last December has given Microsoft plenty of data to turn this release into a solid offering.

Of course, that is my opinion about the quality of this release and I said as much in my review of the Anniversary Update but now we want to hear from you.

Is the Windows 10 Anniversary Update ready for the spotlight and if it isn't then what is holding it back in your opinion?

 


Did you force the Windows 10 Anniversary Update or receive it through Windows Update?

 

We learned today that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was released more than six weeks ago, may not finish its full upgrade roll out until early November.

Although many enthusiasts used the Windows 10 Update Assistant and the Media Creation tool from Microsoft to get the upgrade immediately there are likely many everyday users who are probably waiting on their system to automatically upgrade through Windows Update.

We want to find out how many of you opted to force the update or are you being patient and waiting for it to arrive on its own schedule?

Thanks for participating in our poll and letting us know!
