Microsoft Has No Plans To Tell Us What's In Windows Patches

What’s better than forced updates? Why, not knowing what those updates are for, of course! While updates have traditionally included links that lead to Microsoft’s support page for more information, it all tends to be a bit vague. That’s not changing any time soon. To be fair, this kind of thing seems to be a widespread issue in the industry. I mean, I can’t remember the last time I got an Android app update that suggested it was anything more than "bug fixes."

Company representatives told The Register that while the company "may choose" to perform "additional promotion" of new features depending on their "significance," there's no intention of providing full release notes. This means that future patches are going to continue to say nothing more than "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."
