Microsoft launches its second update rerun, Windows 10 20H2
Microsoft on Tuesday released the latest upgrade, Windows 10 20H2 — the H2 standing for second half — to gutsy users eager to be first and for commercial customers who want to begin testing before broader deployment.

Also called "Windows 10 October 2020 Update," the upgrade was available immediately to at least some who sought it. "Beginning today, the October 2020 Update is available initially for users of select devices running Windows 10, version 1903 or later (emphasis added)," John Cable, a Microsoft executive in the Windows servicing and delivery team, wrote in a post to a company blog.

Reviewed: Windows 10 October 2020 Update inches in the right direction
Microsoft's Windows 10 October 2020 Update (20H2) will usher the new Microsoft Edge browser onto millions of PCs, while upgrading the venerable Alt Tab shortcut with a needed new function. But Microsoft's designers have turned the once-colorful Start menu into watery gruel with a less-than-impressive visual update.

Update: The Windows 10 October 2020 Update is now available for you to download.

All in all, the Windows 10 October 2020 Update is another in a line of anemic fall feature updates. And that's okay! We expected this. For the past two to three years, Microsoft's major feature updates have coalesced within the "spring" releases, leaving mainly minor patches and quality updates for the fall release. (See the Windows 10 November 2019 Update.) This year is no different, though the small list of changes do allow for some interesting tweaks to your Windows 10 PC.

DOJ's antitrust fight with Google: how we got here
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) wants to break Google's iron grip on search and search advertising. But if that's the end game of the antitrust lawsuit unveiled today, don't expect the government (or Google-haters) to get what they want.

For years now, the Justice Departments and 11 Republican-led states have been working to knock Google off its pedestal as the leading search engine. And now, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen is alleging that Google violated Section 2 of the Sherman Act. This follows a 2019 investigation into "market-leading platforms" and their competitive practices. Those of you with long technology memories may recall that the last important time the Sherman Act was used against a company was in 1998 when the DOJ used it on Microsoft.

Microsoft focuses on Office, less so on Windows, and offers nothing for browsers on Patch Tuesday
This posting is a little later than usual due to a number of late-in-the-week updates from Microsoft last week. We started off with no publicly reported zero-days or active exploits in the wild. (As we were working with Microsoft, we felt that an out-of-bound patch was imminent that would change our advice on patch cycles for October. But it appears the final "change" for this release was a relatively minor update to Visual Studio - leading to no change in our recommendations in this benign update.)To read this article in full, please click here
