    Microsoft's Windows 10: Business users may get patch details after all


    After indicating that the company had no plans to provide full details about the patches and updates it is providing for Windows 10, Microsoft looks to be rethinking that strategy -- at least to some degree for business customers.

    To date, Microsoft officials have said the company has no plans to make available to Windows 10 users particulars on what the company is fixing and updating. Microsoft officials told The Register the company will reveal some information about "significant" features and fixes that are in the Windows 10 Cumulative rollups, but not all. So far, the level of patch detail the company is providing is less than it has been in the past.

    "We don't do full change lists, it is too tough to manage and doesn't really add any value," Windows Insider chief Gabe Aul said on Twitter recently, in response to users asking about patch and update change lists.

    But on August 28, there were some indications Microsoft might be softening its stance.

    At a press event on the Redmond campus, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Jim Alkove told reporters Microsoft might provide business customers with change lists for patches and updates, but provided no information as to when or how...

    with the internet, if they tell one group, it won;t be hard to find the details yourself. Kind if stupid for MS unless they plan NDAs for all their "business customers"

    That is why all users should know what their updates are affecting.

    Would be nice if that were to come to pass -- but I strongly doubt it will. It's not going to be long, maybe only a few more months, before the Win10 installed base is over 100 Million -- with nearly all of those being the free Upgrade.

    So, what are 100 Million folks going to do when MS decides to still NOT tell us details about Windows Update? Roll back to Win7 or Win8? I doubt it. The polls I've seen about satisfaction rates with Win10 vs. rolling back show a 90% or greater satisfaction with Win10.
