Microsoft rolls out Meltdown and Spectre fixes for Windows 7 and 8.1

He stated that Windows 10 S is used as an option for schools or businesses that require a "low-hassle/guaranteed performance" version of the OS, but in 2019 the operating system is set to become a "mode" of existing Oss, instead of remaining a distinct version.

MICROSOFT HAS CONFIRMED that the latest update to Windows 10 will indeed be called the Spring Creators Update and will be released next month.

Last year, it was announced that Teams would eventually be built as a PWA and make its way to the store; it looks like that future is almost here as a lucky few are now able to download the app.

Addresses issue where Internet Explorer stops working when using F12-based developer tools. While testing the app, Microsoft is also calling it a Hosted Web App (HWA) instead of a PWA but both operate on a similar basis; turning your web code into an app that runs locally with increased access to system resources.

Addresses issue where Internet Explorer is unresponsive in certain scenarios when a Browser Helper Object is installed. You can check the update availability by going to Settings- Update & Security- Windows update- Check for updates. This might prevent the AD FS service from starting. This results in an "SXXXXXXX-X" error or a "We couldn't download the Windows Mixed Reality Software" message may appear after the software is successfully downloaded.

Microsoft has recently worked with the anti-virus (AV) partners on the compatibility with the Windows updates that have now reached a sustained level of broad ecosystem compatibility.

Lifts the Anti-Virus (AV) compatibility check to expand the number of Windows 10 devices that are offered cumulative Windows security updates.

We fixed two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on the previous build (Windows Mixed Reality running at a very low frame rate (8-10fps), and a potential crash at startup that could cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work). Devices with known AV driver compatibility problems will be blocked from updates. "We recommend customers check with their AV provider on compatibility of their installed AV software product".

Those on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 are being updated to build 16299.309 (KB4088776).

Microsoft has backtracked on a decision it took back in January when it conditioned that computers without a special registry key would not receive any more security updates.
