• Yes, you read that correctly: Win7 machines don’t get free security patches, but they do get a free copy of Chredge

    Microsoft has officially announced that those of you with Win7, who (accidentally?) run Windows Update, will get a fresh, new copy of the Chromium based version of Edge.

    And it’ll happen whether you’ve signed up (and paid) for Extended Security Updates or not.

    You need to have at least the March, 2019 Servicing Stack Update, and the SHA-2 update KB 4474419. But if you have those, you get Chredged.

    Imagine. MS can’t give you security updates, but they sure as shootin’ will push Chredge on ya.

    Same applies, mutatis mutandis, for Win8.1.
