The anticipation finally ended this morning as Microsoft took the stage in New York City’s Skylight at Moynihan Station to announce their new hardware lineup across all of their major product categories.
Read and Discuss
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?
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?
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?
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?
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!
As of today there have been 23 PC builds and 16 Mobile builds pushed out to testers for the soon to be released Windows 10 Creators Update. This third major feature update has been in development since August of last year.
The feature set was locked down a month ago and over the last few builds no new features have been added while a lot of work has been done on fixing bugs and improving performance.
Since we are on the verge of seeing what is likely the general availability build of the Creators Update we want to get a quick thumbs up or thumbs down on your view of the updates readiness for release.
We have already heard this week that the Mobile version of this feature update will not be released on the same day as the PC update so this poll is all about that version.
Of course, in this Windows as a Service (WaaS) world we live in is anything ever really complete?
Thanks for voting.
The official roll out begins on the April 2017 Patch Tuesday, the 11th of April, and some advanced users will have even earlier access to it before then however, the roll out is planned to take several months.
So that means you will need to make a conscious effort to go grab the update early and force your system to upgrade or wait until it is your systems turn to become eligible for the third major feature update of Windows 10.
Where do you stand on this upgrade cycle?
Will you go download it immediately or wait for your window to open up?
