For users of Windows 10, cumulative updates are especially important because they usually cover all known security holes.
In addition to the cumulative updates known to everyone, Microsoft also releases delta updates. Delta includes all changes made since the previous update and is only available for systems that are already up-to-date.
So tomorrow Tuesday is the day of Patch Tuesday and it will bring cumulative updates for all versions of Windows 10, except της αρχικής έκδοσης (10240) αλλά και του build 1511 που δεν λαμβάνουν πλέον support για τους home χρήστες. Τα ίδια builds που είναι στο πλάνο LTSB (long term support builds) της Microsoft συνεχίζουν να ενημερώνονται κανονικά.
Recently, Microsoft released the KB4090913 cumulative update for computers running the Windows Update Fall Creators Update, as well as the KB4092077 update for computers running Windows 10 Creators Update.
As with any new update, Microsoft recommends that customers install the patches as soon as possible, although some have learned that it is best to wait for a topic to be reported.
Cumulative updates have occasionally caused headaches for Windows 10 users, as some of them fail to install, causing problems for computers.
To be fair, we should mention that Windows is installed on billions of computers worldwide. So problems especially with centralized updates are probably natural to occur, considering the number of different hardware used by all systems.
It remains to be seen how smooth the experience this month will be, and if problems arise.
Tomorrow, however, before any update, it would be good to create backups.
