When the Software Gets Ahead of the Hardware

Microsoft releases “feature updates” to Windows 10 every six months. I could do without these. Just make it faster and fix the bugs.

Update and restart.

If PC manufacturers don’t keep up with Microsoft by updating device drivers (the software tying Windows to hardware components), we’re left with computers that try and fail to install feature updates.

I’m not in the market for a new computer, but I found an article that links to a Microsoft software tool to ignore specific updates. Security updates for Windows can still be installed monthly. If you have administrator access to Windows, this tool could prove useful.
