    Windows 10 Users Still Crying for OS Update Information


    New Feedback suggestion gets hundreds of votes


    With Windows 10, Microsoft has made a change that seems to upset the majority of users who have already installed the new operating system: update information is no longer provided unless there's something that's worth mentioning.

    Otherwise, the only release information we get is the typical “improvements and performance optimizations” statement that says basically nothing about a specific update. And in most of the cases, these updates also bring a series of other changes that Windows 10 users have to discover on their own.

    As a result, in the last few months users have been asking Microsoft to release update information on pretty much every single feedback channel. And a new suggestion posted in the Windows 10 Feedback app is rapidly getting votes, with nearly 1,000 received only in the last week.

    Microsoft still says “no”
    Terry Myerson, head of the OS group at Microsoft, revealed that Enterprise users could actually receive detailed change logs for operating system updates at some point in the future, but as far as those running Windows 10 Home and Pro are concerned, no change was planned.

    From the referenced page:
    While Microsoft still remains tight-lipped on this, the company previously did mention that release information for consumers wouldn't be provided, as the majority of users simply want to install the update and nothing more.

    Terry Myerson, head of the OS group at Microsoft, revealed that Enterprise users could actually receive detailed change logs for operating system updates at some point in the future, but as far as those running Windows 10 Home and Pro are concerned, no change was planned.
    I doubt I'm the first to be baffled by Microsoft "logic", but I don't get it. The information is obviously available and will even be sanitized for public consumption "in the future". So what if the majority of users don't want the information? They can ignore it ... just as they have in all previous Windows versions.

    Can Home and Pro users become Enterprise users just by paying for the license, or is there some prohibitive legal, financial, or technical requirement to that?

    You don't get it do you? We shouldn't have to resort to doing that when they can just display the update info like they did in windows 7.

    They are starting to do that (less info) even with windows 7 (I triple boot) but not as bad as windows 10. I can't seem to make my mind up what I want to do or keep that why I have a triple boot system. W7 64 bit, W10 32 bit, Lubuntu 14.04.3 64 bit Lts with xfce & wine 32 bit.

    I can think of only 2 logical reasons why MS would not be willing to tell users precisely what upgrades contain: either they are too lazy to do it or they want to hide what they are really doing. Neither option gives me much confidence in them.
