New Windows 10 Cumulative Update now available with fixes for version 1703

Developers and others in Microsoft's Windows Insiders program are getting a first look at new privacy options to control what kinds of user information the company can access for the goal of improving its products and services.

It's unclear for now what such a change might mean for people who bought devices built on Windows 10 S, which has since also been targeted at "first-line" employees who deal directly with customers.

Windows 10 S was created to simplify administration for school sysadmins by running only apps from the Windows Store and designed to run on low-priced hardware. It was a more restricted version of Windows 10 that only allowed apps from the Windows Store to be installed.

Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, said that there was some confusion about Windows 10 S OS from Microsoft's partners and consumers. "Based on that feedback, we are simplifying the experience for our customers".

Mirotic scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, Holiday had 23 points and eight assists, and E'Twaun Moore added 15 points. It's remarkable what he has done since DeMarcus Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

It's been a while since Microsoft released a new Windows 10 build to the Slow ring, but today, the company released build 17115. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. These rumors turned out to be false as Belfiore confirmed in his blog post. The past two major Windows 10 updates have been named "Creators Update" and "Fall Creators Update" respectively. "If a customer does want to switch out of S mode, they will be able to do so at no charge, regardless of edition".

This new approach is vastly different from Microsoft's original strategy.

Both Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro users will be able to switch to the S Mode in order to have a faster and more intuitive user experience, without Win32 programs. Previously, if users wanted to switch from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro, they would have to pay $49, as pointed out by ZDNet.

However, PCWorld senior editor Mark Hachman noted in a tweet yesterday that Futuresource's report did not specifically mention Windows 10 S. When it released Windows 10 S past year, Microsoft said it had developed the OS based on feedback from students, teachers, and school administrators around the world.
