    I think we are missing the main point in this discussion. My understanding was always that KBs will improve my system. But I fail to see how the KBs in question do that. They are pure marketing stuff - and that should have been dealt with differently. It puts the whole KB system in question.
    KB's are "changes". That's all, they don't imply improvement, they are a method of change control.

    All patches to the OS, be they "hotfixes", Service packs, security updates, or even patches that remove functionality (like the one that removed gadgets from Windows 7) are KB's. KB's are actually the Knowledge Base articles that document the change, and the files are named after them.

    Of the 4 or so KB's associated with the Windows 10 rollout, 3 of them I believe are updates that modify the OS to make upgrading easier by prepping the OS components to a certain level. The 4th one is the one that does the "notifications" which is what people seem to complain about. Regardless, 3 of them are perfectly fine and are just maintenance patches, and don't do anything you might not want. You are free to not install the 4th one (or any of them really) and to set your system to not install Recommended updates as important.

    Mystere, we can discuss this subject to death. But I wonder what you guys think why MS has put those KBs on our systems.

    I think the main purpose is to get people to move to W10 asap. They don't want to see another W8 marketing scenario which would be a real possibility given that W10 could be viewed as a W8.2.

    And Windows 8 was called Windows 7 SP2. And Windows 7 was called Vista SP2. We always get people who say "I don't see why this deserves a new version number". And, in fact, it seems that there won't be any new version numbers like that... MS is taking the OS X route most likely... Version 10.x forever...

    I am not talking about the numbering system. I mean the overall appearance of the system. I would suspect that people who do not like W8.1 (which I think is a great system) may also have reservations regarding W10. But calling W8 a W7 SP2 is really far fetched. At least nobody could call Vista an XP SP4, LOL.
