User defeats Microsoft's latest bid to force W10 upgrade

According to the latest blog post, Microsoft is now committing to a twice-every-year major update schedule for Windows 10, in a bid to bring more stability, predictability, and customer reliance using security and new features. We're looking at three and six years of updates, respectively.

One of the biggest changes that came with Windows 10 is the new model of support and upgrades with which the Microsoft operating system became a kind of continuous development system, also known as "Rolling Release". The company will target September and March for the releases each year.

PC users may never again have to go through the hassle of installing a completely new version of Windows, following an announcement from Microsoft. However, the company frequently upgraded smaller functionalities in the Office suite nearly on a weekly basis.

Microsoft is also planning to finish off on Redstone 3 in September release window but it is worth pointing out that it traditionally releases the code a month after the code is completed. Windows Insider Paul Thurrott agrees, calling the biannual schedule "too aggressive", and personally preferring an annual features update.

North Korea celebrated its founder's birthday with an extravagant military display
Liquid-fueled missiles can't move as easily and so tend to be sitting ducks, if the USA or another country chose to take them out. In a tweet on April 11, Trump expressed his willingness to work with the Chinese to "solve the problem" with North Korea.

Recognizing that most personal computers are laptops and that battery longevity is a major factor in productivity, Microsoft has aggressively promoted Windows 10's power savings, notably in the boosterism behind Edge, the OS's default browser. "The Windows, Office and E+MS teams will continue to seek more ways to make deployment easier, and we look forward to your continued feedback to help us with that process". The two updates will roll out each March and September, confirmed the company.

Windows 10 testers can already try out the feature as long as they have access to a notebook with an Intel Skylake or Kaby Lake processor inside.

The revelation comes as Microsoft announces plans to align its feature releases of Windows and Office, primarily to make things easier for enterprise users. Presumably, they're still using that number because they're quite far away from the 1 billion devices they were originally targeting for Windows 10 adoption.
