Patch bundles are the new norm for Windows 10

Gregg Keizer | Aug. 13, 2015
Microsoft yesterday showed how it will distribute security updates to Windows 10 as it packaged all those that apply to the new OS in a single download.

But maybe he shouldn't hold his breath.

"Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously released fixes," Microsoft said in the support document accompanying Tuesday's patch bundle [emphasis added]. "If you have previous updates installed, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer."

That sounds as if Microsoft will continue its cumulative-only strategy, serving up changes -- the "new fixes" -- to customers who have kept up.
