Windows 10 owners know by now that updates to the OS are being released much slower than Microsoft has done so in the past. Remember when a tiny popup would show at the bottom of your screen, asking you to update, and you always selected for it to update in four hours? That’s gone, now. Updates are mandatory and forced, whether you want them to happen or not. And they’re happening more infrequently. Read on to find out why.
Microsoft’s released its latest operating system, Windows 10, this summer. Now it’s time for an update.
If you are a veteran Windows user, you might want to call this a “Service Pack,” as updates were called in many previous Windows versions. However, Microsoft wants us to be thinking of Windows 10 more as a cloud service, where the idea is that updates are happening on a continual basis. So while initially referred to as “Threshold 2,” Microsoft now is officially referring to this update with the more subdued name of “Windows 10 November update.”
