Windows 10 updates will no longer have notes with them

Windows 10 updates will no longer have notes with them

Windows 10 was launched about a month ago but quickly the new OS created a lot of controversy with its telemetry functionality implemented right into the OS core. The new OS functions track what you do on your computer and send Microsoft information about your activities. The official explanation is that the collected information will help Microsoft make Windows even better. It’s up to you to believe this statement or not.

Unfortunately the controversy seems to have become bigger once again – starting now Microsoft will no longer include notes with its Windows 10 patches and updates. This means that users will not have information on what a certain patch does to one’s PC. Microsoft will only publish KB articles relevant to most updates, which it will deliver with Windows as a service. In addition Microsoft may choose to do additional promotion of new features as they’re deployed if the update is significant enough and is bringing new functionality to Windows users. This means Microsoft will decide which patches will come with detailed notes and which will not. For instance the recent cumulative update for Windows 10 just had a single sentence in the patch notes which said that the update brings “improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10.”

We’ll see how the market will react to this news but we cannot accept this as something positive.
