Windows 10’s second big update, dubbed the “Anniversary Update”, is finally here. This is a huge update that touches every corner of the operating system. It includes many, many more changes than the November update did.
I finally did this update.
I’d attempted it a couple times but the odd behavior made me think it wasn’t working so I aborted it. Also I unplugged all of my peripherals the final attempt, but I don’t know if that had anything to do with the update’s eventual success.
It seems like there isn’t a lot here for me since I really don’t like the prospect of integrating with other Microsoft services. And I don’t trust Microsoft’s ability to integrate with Android, Google, or anything else in a way that I’d prefer. So most of this new good stuff is, sadly, lost on me. But if it runs better, faster, more stably, then great!
