See spring outside your windows? You might be seeing it on your Windows as well

The rumours are flying that the Windows 10 April Update might start arriving on machines today.  The root of this rumour is a large update released today for those running the last major update and it is not alone.  The Inquirer also spotted some information suggesting the Surface Phone may be launching soon as well as Windows Lean, a slimmed down OS for hybrid tablets which will hopefully be better than Windows 10 S.  The last bit of speculation has to do with how Windows will update.  This could be the last large update Microsoft pushes out and we may start to learn more about how they intend to move their OS into a service model instead of a product. 

None of this has been confirmed, so keep your eyes peeled for official announcements.

"A cumulative update (KB4093105) for the previous Fall Creators' Update (1709) was pushed through this morning and we'd bet it probably readies the ground for the big update."

Well with M$ it's the fix to fix the fix that borked some functionality that was not broken in the first place. So it's Zero Days forever for those wanting to pull their hair out trying to get through until it's deja vu all over again with the new round of KB's pushed out to fix the what previous round has broken.

Round and round it goes and when it stops is just a wild guess and even the folks in Redmond have not a clue as to what will be incoming with each new month of pure KB misery.

Windows Defcon Levels are a regular thing with KB missiles incomimg on a more than monthly basis these past few update cycles. So all one can do under windows 10 is duck and cover and await the latest damage reports, with 7 and 8.1 also getting in on that theater of KB action tragedy as well.

That wordwrap gets these kind of word transposition errors what with words dancing from one line to the next all the time.

When I saw that this article had 3 comments, I predicted the following:

1. The Wall-of-Text guy would respond with old, tired, cliched (and worst of all, unfunny) Microsoft hate that wouldn't look out of place 20 years ago.

2. The Wall-of-Text guy would use the dollar sign for the letter S.

3. The Wall-of-Text guy would have more than one post.

#3 is true so far on a technicality, since the post is a correction, but now that he's reading this sentence, I expect him to fulfill his destiny.

And If it Pissed You Off then it has done its 3 main jobs!

1. That Wall-O-Text did its job in Pissing you Off!

2. That Wall-O-Text did its job in Pissing you Off!

3. That Wall-O-Text did its job in Pissing you Off!

So that's one more Post That Pissed you off that The "$" for Monopoly that causes the entire computing market to suffer still applies to M$ to this very Day! It's the same as for all the other Monopolies that are rather infamous and that most folks with half a brain hate and will always hate!

M$ the great cause of many many TIFKAM/Tiles, Ribbion Interface/Mistakes, and all around Update/Borking moments these many decades of KB/"Fixing" and UI borking madness from the Lords of Redmond that no one really likes!

That 3 very true things that Piss You so very much off form the very heart of those Walls-O-Text that have you vexed!

Triggered[See meme] you ARE so very Much by those Walls-O-Text!!!!
