Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services. Its best-known software products are the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems, Microsoft Office office suite, and Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers. Recently Microsoft stated that from 10th May 2016 fewer updates will be available for windows.
Now Limited Updates Will Be Available For WindowsProblems with the Windows updates are not unique to the Insider program, as We know that sometimes updates have flaws that may represent only a temporary problem to the correction or something more worrying, as a security breach. So many choose to manually install updates after a certain time of its release. However, this can become unfeasible from 10th May 2016.
According to an official statement from Microsoft, some updates are no longer available in the Download Center to be downloaded manually, only the Microsoft Update Catalog. So the ordinary users will have very less and limited options while only business users can easily maintain their control over the updates.
This is more of a Microsoft strategy to take more control over the system of its users, the tech giant Microsoft continues to try to force its users to upgrade to Windows 10 on the systems running previous versions of Windows. In this case, Microsoft is just talking about security updates, but it may be only the first step to completely centralize the updates in Windows Update.
If this is the case, it will become easier for the tech giant Microsoft to establish applications which are used by default for certain tasks. We must remember that it was essential for Internet Explorer to maintain its advantage over other browsers which are used for many years. Of course, We are, just speculating the reasons behind the decision of the tech giant Microsoft, however, the tech giant Microsoft refuses to comment on this topic.
