The newly-minted update changes are just one part of the improvements added to Windows 10 with the build released Monday.
Nice Newspeak(TM) spin there.
It's not an improvement. It's a fix, to a facility they broke in Windows 10 -- namely, the ability to control the update system.
And if we're being perfectly honest here, it's not even a fix. It's a workaround to a facility that never fscking worked in the first place , i.e. installing device drivers through Windows Update. Never. Worked.
And deploying this workaround serves as tacit admission by Microsoft that they they haven't the remotest clue how to fix it. Even after locking out those terribly pesky, annoying users and arrogating all administrative control to themselves with Windows 10, it STILL. DOESN'T. WORK.
