<a href="http://www.microsoft.com">Microsoft</a> will not begin using <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/features">Windows 10</a>'s multiple update tracks, called "branches" by the Redmond, Wash. firm, until later this year, analysts said, and in the interim will continue to push all updates to everyone at the same time.

Patch Tuesday, contrary to expectations earlier this year, survived after Microsoft yesterday delivered security updates not only for the legacy editions of Windows, but also for the new Windows 10.
After the truly wretched Windows 8 and marginally less wretched Windows 8.1, Windows 10 comes as a breath of fresh air.
Finally, an operating system from Microsoft you can love.
Patch Tuesday is not dead.
By February 2017, Microsoft should have Windows 10 on more than 440 million personal computers, according to a new analysis of user share data and upgrade tempo.
