    Microsoft adds a new upgrade block for Windows 10 versions 2004 and 20H2 neowin.com | Today

    The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is no stranger to known issues, and while there were a bunch at launch, most of them have been fixed over the last six months or so. A new known issue is affecting Windows 10 users though, and if you use a Thunderbolt NVMe SSD, you'll want to pay attention.

    More flaws/bugs with the newest can be found here... Where it belongs.

    Microsoft confirms undeletable ‘Windows.old’ folder bug on Windows 10 windowslatest.com - November 13, 2020

    When you apply Windows 10 feature updates or upgrade to a new version of the OS, Microsoft creates a folder called "Windows.old" to save a copy of the previous version for recovery purpose.

    With this week’s preview build, Microsoft says it has finally resolved an issue that prevents removal of Windows.old folder for some people when they use Disk Cleanup.

    “We fixed an issue where the windows.old folder is not completely deleted when performing disk cleanup,” Microsoft noted in the changelog of Windows 10 Build 20257.

    Although Microsoft is yet to announce a release date for the undeletable Windows.old folder fix in production channels, it’s expected to land later this year or early next year.

    Microsoft offer more than awful hardware (surface-books) and buggy OS.

    Microsoft is selling a new Ugly Sweater again deskmodder.com December 1, 2020
    These things are so ugly that they are cult in turn. The Ugly Sweater. This year again, Microsoft is offering its sweaters with the logos of various Windows products. This time it's the MS Paint Ugly Sweater. It is being offered for $ 69.99:confused:

    Windows 10 will still get two feature updates next year, but in a new way windowslatest.com - November 28, 2020

    Microsoft is still planning to release two feature updates next year for Windows 10, but the company won't repeat this year's major-minor cadence for upgrades. This time the significance of the next two Windows 10...

    This time the significance of the next two Windows 10 upgrades will be flipped. The end result will be a minor service pack-like refresh in Spring (April-May) followed by a feature-rich upgrade in the fall (October-November).


    It’s unclear if Microsoft will be using the new “servicing technology” to deliver the first minor, but it’s very likely that Windows 10 won’t be getting anything ‘exciting’ until the second half of 2021.

    Windows 10 cross-signed root certificates for drivers will expire in February 2021 deskmodder.com December 1, 2020 good Morning November 30, 2020

    It won't be long, then Microsoft will be the only point of contact to issue root certificates for Windows 10 drivers that are signed in kernel mode. In the past, cross-signed certificates from other providers could also be used. For Windows 7 and 8.1

    Microsoft tighten up the control over your computers.

    Since Microsoft made the announcement a long time ago, there will certainly be no outage for normal users. Unless you have drivers that are not from the manufacturer or have not been updated. The driver signature can still be switched off .

    In any case, it is positive for the safety of the devices and for the users. The Redmond-based company has already made some changes under Windows 10 recently. This means that drivers are no longer updated via the Device Manager . Graphics drivers are under tighter control and the driver submission guidelines have also changed.

    Reminder: support for root certificates with kernel mode signing capabilities ends next year ghacks.net

    The change affects devices running Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system only, and drivers that have expired as part of the change won't load, run or install anymore on Windows 10 devices

    When buggy patch history ain't enough...


    Windows 10 is getting support for additional Microsoft products updates windowslatest.com - December 5, 2020

    On Windows 10, Windows Update allows you to easily download feature updates, monthly cumulative update updates, optional updates, and driver updates. Windows Update can also detect, download and apply updates for Microsoft products, which can include the Office productivity suite.

    Starting December 2020, Microsoft will begin releasing updates for additional Microsoft products such as .NET Core 2.1, 3.1 or .NET 5.0. Windows Update will also allow you to apply updates to .NET Core Runtime, Core Runtime, and the .NET Core Desktop Runtime installers.

    This is disgusting. @Mr. Fox @Ashtrix +++ Two feature updates each year is already 1 (2) too much. Microsoft rather prefer the great idea throw out new beta's each and every single month.

    Microsoft explains how Windows 10 will get new features faster windowslatest.com | Dec 7, 2020

    Next year, you’ll notice a jump in both ‘OS build’ number and ‘Windows Feature Experience Pack’ at the same time after applying monthly updates from Windows Update.

    The future plan is to deliver new features during monthly optional updates for Windows 10 and Insiders will get some additional features for the OS without downloading a new preview build.

    For consumers, this means that Microsoft could soon release new features, improve them or even remove them during the monthly servicing rather than waiting for the major OS updates, which happen twice a year in the spring and the fall.

    Remember the days when MS boasted having made "the most secure windows ever" ?
    > https://news.softpedia.com/news/mic...-10-the-most-secure-windows-ever-510158.shtml
    (For some reason, the blog it refered to seemingly mia)

    Today's upd., great security achievements indeed :O)
    Windows 10 version 1809: 19 vulnerabilities: 1 critical and 18 important
    Windows 10 version 1903 and 1909: 18 vulnerabilities: 1 critical and 17 important
    Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2: 19 vulnerabilities, 1 critical, 18 important

    vs
    Windows 8.1: 5 vulnerabilities: 0 rated critical and 5 rated important

    Edit: my update 'amounts': w8.1 50 MB, w10 ltsc 415 MB. All (seemingly so far) gone very well.
