Microsoft is now in the midst of pushing out the long-awaited Creators Update. Don’t expect to open up your machine and install it right away, though. While the rollout started yesterday, it’s only for “new computers” and could take “several months” to reach every machine running Windows 10.
“Like with the Anniversary Update we delivered last August, this update for Windows will proceed in phases. Based on our experience and feedback from our customers, we believe a phased approach provides the highest quality update experience to the broadest set of customers,” explains the firm.
So what does the Creators Update bring to the table? Well, in addition to a 3D version of Paint, it bundles compatibility for Dolby Atmos virtualization through headphones, a new Game Mode which prioritizes CPU and GPU resources while gaming, picture-in-picture support for Universal Windows Apps and more.
Goodbye, old friend
On a related note, Microsoft has today killed off Vista, putting an end to all security updates, non-security hotfixes, assisted support options and online technical content upgrades. But that doesn’t mean you have to stop using it, as it’ll still function like normal. It just won’t receive any patches for new exploits.
Goodbye, old friend.
