Windows 10: One Major Update Per Year?

Windows 10: One Major Update Per Year?

Back in 2017, Microsoft switched to a two updates per year model for Windows 10. While this seemed logical, there have been numerous problems with those updates. Last year, the company was sued for bricking a user’s PC. The October 2018 update was not well received by users. This year’s first update caused boot failures and black screens which frustrated a number of users… and those are just a few of the issues being reported.

Now, it appears Microsoft may be looking at a new model that includes only one major update per year. The company may still do minor updates in the same calendar year, but limiting the majors may give the user base more faith in the updates.
