Microsoft Updates Shipping Version of Windows 10 Again

The new Windows 10 Insider Preview build that Microsoft delivered last night was accompanied by a new cumulative update for the shipping version of Windows 10. This is perhaps not coincidental.

As you may know, Microsoft ships monthly cumulative updates for Windows 10 on Patch Tuesday. But this month’s release already happened last week, right on schedule. So what’s up with this second cumulative update?

Actually, these kinds of releases aren’t all that uncommon. As I noted recently in Updating in Windows 10 Version 1703? You Win Some, You Lose Some, the entire point of Windows as a Service (WaaS) is that Microsoft can update your PC anytime it wants. Thus equals a Reboot too
