Microsoft cloaks the details of Windows 10 updates

Gregg Keizer | July 21, 2015
Microsoft last week demonstrated how much of a black box a Windows 10 update may be to the millions of users expected to upgrade to the new operating system.

The addition of the latter categories makes updates even more opaque, even more difficult to swallow by users who want to know exactly what Microsoft is putting on their machines. Microsoft has removed much of the control over updates that users once enjoyed: The only options remaining to them in Windows 10 Home are when the system reboots and whether they receive updates immediately or later. By not revealing an update's complete content, the company is walking further down a path that some already refuse to take.

And that's bad for Windows 10.
