The cumulative update that was released by Microsoft on August 31 for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes a fix that some of its users were expecting: Fixed PowerShell.
The previous cumulative update for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (the one released on August 23 or Build 14.393,82) has caused problems in the operating system's PowerShell. The Cumulative Update released yesterday (Build 14.393,105) fixes the PowerShell DSC problem, according to Microsoft.
Build 14393.105, yesterday's cumulative update, is the third Microsoft release for mainstream users (who are not registered with Windows Insider) since the long-awaited Windows 10 Anniversary Update was released on August 2nd. Three updates that fix the code… not bad at all, but we are talking about a final release. Or should we forget the word final?
31 update August does not include new features but only bug fixes as well as general performance and reliability updates according to release notes.
Please also note that this update fixes a freeze that some users were experiencing when they were logged on to Windows.
All of the above is known, or to write it better is a déjà vu situation. We have seen it again and we will continue to live it as it seems. Although we are supposed to have a final version in our systems, actually feeling is like being beta testers.
But all of the above confirm what they are we had mentioned through iGuRu.gr a long time ago.
Microsoft is trying to follow a Linux model known as Rolling Release due to Open Source. Windows was Windows as a Service because users would start charging for the service.
But Microsoft seems to be wrong. Updates continue to go unheeded by mistakes in development, although the company is currently using millions of testers (unpaid).
Linux can learn to Microsoft as long as it comes down from the pole. Take, for example, openSUSE and the rolling Tumbleweed version.
Rolling version does not mean I'm stopping to respect my customers. On the contrary. Rolling Release does not mean beta release.
