Microsoft To Do Windows 10 Style Roll Up Updates With Windows 8.1/7

The Internet is abuzz because of the fact that Microsoft is planning to bring Windows 10 style roll up patches to Windows 7 and 8.1. That means instead of getting a bunch of patches that fixes a bunch of issues, you get a single huge patch.

Now Apple does this when they do updates to the OS X so this isn’t a new idea. But I think the Internet is talking about this is because of the fact that Microsoft has been accused of not being transparent in terms of what’s in Windows 10 roll up updates. Which means they may not be transparent with Windows 7/8.1 updates either. It also means that Microsoft can slip stuff in under the covers as well. For example, nagware to get you to upgrade to Windows 10.

This could go two ways. Nobody will care, or it will upset a lot of users. This will start in October and it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
