Microsoft have now started publishing information about the content of the Windows updates that are delivered to the Windows 10 operating system.


see http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/update-history-windows-10


Whilst obviously it's not everything that has been tweaked in the updates, it does look like a reasonable precis of important changes, and I consider it a positive step forward.

Thank you for this. Interesting even if not fully understood.  I have bookmarked it and will check in form time to time.

For me it raises more questions than answers at this time.

 A move in the right direction no doubt.  But if you have Windows 10 Home version, you have no choice about Windows Update, so this indeed raises questions about how this info will be presented.  What I'd REALLY like to see is a lot more detail about exactly what they're collecting in those Privacy settings, how they're using them, and what they'd do if the government demands to see their database.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
