  • Looks like sometimes-patch KB 4023057 is back

    Posted on October 13th, 2017 at 20:22 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft’ KB article doesn’t shed much light, but KB 4023057 Update to Windows 10 Versions 1507, 1511, and 1607 for update reliability: October 12, 2017 has reappeared, according to G√ľnter Born.

    Only certain builds of Windows 10 Versions 1507, 1511, and 1607 require this update. Devices that are running those builds will automatically get the update downloaded and installed through Windows Update.

    This update replaces the previously released update 4022868. (“Update to Windows 10 Version 1507 and Version 1511 for update reliability: May 30, 2017”)

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen KB 4023057. I’ve seen reports of the same KB (apparently released on June 21) in mid-July, and from our own @AElMassry on July 26. Born reports that it rolled out on October 5. The KB article says it’s at revision 53.

  • Where Windows for businesses is headed: Details about “Win10 Enterprise in S Mode”

    Yep, Win10S Enterprise will lock it down, give admins Group Policy control, and limit your users to Windows Store apps. For just $10/month. Coming this spring.

    Gregg Keizer has a good overview on Computerworld.

    I wonder what Chromebooks will be available by then?
