Windows 10

Microsoft va a dejar las actualizaciones individuales que usaba hasta ahora por los "actualizaciones acumulativas" que usa en Windows 10, tanto en Windows 7 como en el 8: Impending cumulative updates for Windows 7 and 8 unnerve patch experts



Microsoft’s decision to force Windows 10’s patch and maintenance model on customers running the older-but-more-popular Windows 7 has patch experts nervous.


“Bottom line, everyone is holding their breath, hoping for the best, expecting the worst,” said Susan Bradley in an email. Bradley is well known in Windows circles for her expertise on Microsoft’s patching processes: She writes on the topic for the Windows Secrets newsletter and moderates the PatchMangement.org mailing list, where business IT administrators discuss update tradecraft.


Bradley’s anxiety stems from Microsoft’s announcement last month that beginning in October it will offer only cumulative security updates for Windows 7 and 8.1, ending the decades-old practice of letting customers choose which patches they apply.


“Individual patches will no longer be available,” Nathan Mercer, a senior product marketing manager, said in an Aug. 15 post to a Microsoft blog.


Instead, Microsoft will transplant the Windows 10 maintenance model onto Windows 7 and 8.1: They will receive updates that cannot be broken into their parts.


“They’re all concerned,” chimed in Chris Goettl, program product manager for patch management vendor Shavlik, referring to customers he has talked to. “This will be extremely painful for some.”



Lost control


While many consumers and small businesses—those that rely on the Windows Update service to patch their Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs—may not notice the change, that’s won’t be true for businesses that test updates before deploying them en masse. Since IT administrators will no longer be able to selectively apply patches, they will not know which individual fix broke their devices, applications or workflow.



Es un problema ya que impide a los administradores de sistemas probar las actualizaciones de manera individual antes de implementarlas en todos los equipos de una red... diciéndolo de una manera escatológica, Microsoft se empeña en meternos un embudo por la boca para que nos traguemos toda su mierda, antes por lo menos dejaba pegar una chupadita de prueba antes de llegar a los vómitos


Pero más preocupante es que haya dejado de hacer Service Packs para los anteriores Windows, tener Windows 7 actualizado después del Service Pack 1 hasta ahora requiere horas y repetidas descargas (aunque haya alguna solución)

Se podrá usar un iPhone para iniciar sesión en Windows 10 gracias a la "tecnología" Windows Hello: You can now use an iPhone to log into a Windows 10 PC, Microsoft says



Apple's iPhone isn't always a good pairing for Microsoft's Windows 10 PCs, but you'll be able to use the phone's biometric authentication features to log into PCs.


Microsoft wants to kill passwords with Windows Hello, a technology that allows users to log into PCs by fingerprint, face, iris. or pattern detection. Beyond Windows 10 devices, the feature is also coming to devices, accessories, and apps that support Windows Hello.


Apple's iPhone will be able to use such an accessory or app to log in to Windows 10. At its Ignite conference this week, Microsoft said iPhone owners can use specific RSA SecurID authenticator tools on their devices to unlock Windows 10 PCs.


RSA uses gesture detection on the iPhone to log a user into Windows 10. On a trusted wireless network, the iPhone's RSA tool will automatically unlock a Windows 10 PC.


"There are other solutions coming for iPhone, too," Anoosh Saboori, senior program manager lead for OS security at Microsoft, said during a presentation at Ignite.


Microsoft believes biometric authentication is a hassle-free and secure way to access PCs and online services. There's no need to store passwords on a device.


Older Windows 10 PCs don't have fingerprint readers or infrared cameras, which are needed for biometric authentication. So Microsoft is promoting the development of devices and accessories that can connect to PCs and serve as secondary authentication devices.


Hemos pasado del "Hola mundo" al "Hola Adolfo" :D
