Microsoft Edge may be still coming to the Windows Store

Microsoft is putting Windows 7 and 8.1 users in danger by only patching Windows 10 claims Google Microsoft might charge an arm and leg for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations

So, what gives? One of the known issues with the mandatory update is that systems with support for USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (USCI) may run into a blue screen, or stop responding with a black screen after initiating a shutdown. You'd be forgiven if you assumed that this might be the release candidate for the Fall Creators Update, but you'd be wrong. Mainstream support for both the services ended on October 9, 2012.

"Technology should adapt and learn how to work with us", Kevin Gallo, corporate vice president of the Windows developer platform, wrote in a post. Microsoft has released many such updates, including three major ones: November Update (version 1511), Anniversary Update (version 1607), and Creators Update (version 1703). Most Windows 10 users are no longer using this version, so this is largely a reminder for stragglers to update.

As part of final preparations for the general availability of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on Oct. 17th, we have begun releasing Build 16299.15 to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring.

Obviously the company will continue to nurse its desktop, enterprise and cloud platforms, while hoping to avoid the stale fate of companies like IBM, which has suffered through 19 consecutive quarters of declining revenues. "Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year".

Users should apply the Cumulative Updates only and not the Delta updates. But if they were approved, and distributed, and download [ed], and installed at the SAME time as the full patch, then you are affected. Application restrictions can be configured by either the ApplicationManagement CSP or AppLocker CSP.

According to the company, the next wave of virtual and augmented reality is mixed reality.

"We have tried very hard to incent app devs", Belfiore said in one tweet yesterday.

HP implies that Microsoft does not invest in its own mobile OS enough to make it competitive, which is why HP is no longer interested in developing devices featuring the platform.

The other big announcement is that Windows Store is now officially called Microsoft Store, signalling a change in branding aimed at cross-platform users.
