Microsoft has released the first major update to Windows 10

I already have applied the update to all but one of my Windows 10 machines, and I can say that this update has returned a feature that I really wanted to have back.  Window border colors are back, of course you could have had them in the offical release of Windows 10 before, but it required some messing around with system files, and was generally a bit too difficult to re-add a minimal level of customization.  I really wish that they’d add a simple way to customize the OS a bit more without special software, but at least they’ve returned some level of that.  Also Microsoft has brought in some more ways for Businesses to manage Windows 10 machines.  Thanks to the new ‘Universal Apps’ it has become a bit more difficult to manage Windows 8/8.1/10 as there aren’t as many controls put on those for IT Admins to work with.  I hope to see more of these features rolled out in the future.

Here’s Microsofts’ blog post about the new upgrade:

In other news, it sounds like Microsoft released a botched windows update to Windows 7/8/8.1 machines on Tuesday.  I haven’t seen anything come of it yet myself… From what I’ve read, a large number of people on Reddit appear to have been having issues with MS Outlook, and network logins since the update was applied on their machines.  I hope that MS fixes those issues quickly, and that this doesn’t become the norm for older versions of Windows.
