Windows 10 works on desktops, laptops, tablets, and laptops that can turn into tablets (sometimes called convertibles or laplets). But it's touchscreen interface is far from perfect, especially when you compare it to Android or iOS.

Here's something new: Microsoft's changed the way they number their bulletins. The previous model used security bulletin ID numbers; this method is being retired, and the new security bulletins will be identified by vulnerability ID numbers and KB Article ID numbers.

So we'll be changing how we present the information. We will be sorting out the security updates by application and by operating system. You can scan through for the ones that affect you, then see what you may want/need to install.
