It's all a numbers game now
Never breaking 15% with 8-8.1 combined is kicking them every step of the way to improve mainly that

Windows 10 will probably do better than 15% but it will take a looong time before they get the W7 numbers. A lot has to happen in the meantime.

Mean time numbers for 8 and 8.1 will go down
A few 7'ers will go too but most of those have already gone to 8.1 so
Once the dust settles after a year out we'll see.

Why should I install either KB unless/until I'm interested in upgrading to Windows 10? In other words, are the changes in these "important" patches beneficial to me or to Microsoft? If they're good for me, then what do they do?
How do these patches interact with/enable/support the obvious nagware cruft in KB 3035583?
Will Microsoft never learn that it's best to be straight with its customers up front? This is the kind of crap I would've expected under the previous regime. It's a disservice to those who are working hard to open up the Windows development process.
Transparency is good on the desktop and in the KB.
I agree. I still don't agree with installing the update as suggested on that site. Smells fishy.

Probably by inconveniencing legitimate owners with useless, obstructive DRM (which pirate versions won't have).

Watch your language! DRM is a dirty word!

Apparently, some people now consider KB3035583 an "Easter Egg"

This rapid release game is starting to remind me of Jazz CDs. I must have owned 5 different versions of Kind Of Blue. First was the one that said "Digitally Remastered" then a "direct recording" with Gold Leaf on the CD. The "Super Bit Mapping" with 20 bit. Then "Super Bit Mapping" 24 bit. Yes the sound was a bit(no pun intended) better each one to where the regular priced 24 bit SBM release sounded better than the high priced Gold CD. But why did I have to buy it 5 times? That's when I needed "free upgrades." Buying the same music over and over. Not to mention the compilations where everything Miles Davis recorded was selected for CD according to some Permutation Algorithm to see how many CDs could be published from the same several hundred tracks etc..

Excuse me I have to look to see if FF is up to v. 50.x yet(I have autoupdates disabled.)
