        Seems to me that this is very good idea. If we didnt dig deep, we had no clue whats new in all these beautiful and superior updates! This should been there from the very beginning! Here comes the common sense! Where have you been so long, my friend?

        Dell Latitude E6530, Intel Core i5 @ 2.6 GHz, 4GB RAM, W10 1809 Enterprise

        HAL3000, AMD Athlon 200GE @ 3,4 GHz, 8GB RAM, Fedora 29

        You still have to dig deep to look for the link of what’s new : Settings > System > Notifications & actions > Show me the Windows welcome experience.

        This should be on the Windows Update page next to the list of updates.

          It’s on by default. You only need to use that setting if you want to disable it.

        “displays the prominent changes in” is quite subjective. For this luddite (grin) the tiles/colour choices/movie speeds etc are irrelevant.

        The most important changes, to me, are those which will make my development platform unstable.

         

        For example, any change to Win10 (was Win7, was WinXP, was Win98) that causes some Word2003-VBA code to wobble sends me off for five days trying to track down the bug in my program code (as was drummed into me a lifetime ago).

        It’s subjective in a way that the HD/SSD debate is subjective. I really do understand that SSD is Better, because it has fewer moving parts and is faster. However, when I am typing up a 10,000 word essay on my school days, or running a job that hunts for duplicates in 18,000 MP3 tracks, disk speed is not relevant.

         

        What’s my point? Well, having what I suspect is a summary of changes up front can serve as a guidepost for the generalists, but every one us us will consider some minor hiccough a major distraction in our life and scream “Why wasn’t i warned about this”!

        Cheers

          I think that telling people what is happening is essential in good relations. Since relation

          Microsoft <-> Non commercial user

          is oneway channel of information towards Microsoft, this relation is not so healthy. Non-techy users have no idea why they have to update few times a month. If Microsoft tells him whats new, I think he would be happy.

          It’s on by default. You only need to use that setting if you want to disable it.

          I did fresh install of build 2004 and its on.

          w10-2004-opts

          And this is what I try to stress out about this “informational wall”. Look how it changed from build 1809

          w10-1809-opts

          Instead of radiobuttons, there are checkboxes. Menu reworked, no information about it. Also how many hours of programmers time this idiotic change took? Is this really important for us?
          Not for me. This just creates more possibility of causing erros when MSFT reworks funtional part of OS. Or maybe these radiobuttouns were security risk. Who knows.
