Windows 10: end of delta updates in 2019 – gHacks Tech News

Microsoft employee Mike Benson revealed on Wednesday that Microsoft will retire delta updates in February 2019 to use Express Updates exclusively.

Microsoft introduced cumulative updates in Windows 10 to “reduce ecosystem fragmentation” and to “make it easier for IT admins and end users to stay up to date and secure”. Cumulative updates introduced issues on the other hand; first, that it removed choice from users and admins in regards to the updates that would get installed on Windows systems. With cumulative updates, users and admins have only two choices: whether to install a cumulative update or not, and whether to install security-only or full updates.
