    Coming closer to next Windows 10 build release, actually the question arises, to update or not to update.

    I updated to Anniversary, and didn’t find resonable improvements over 1511 build.

    It seems, that the main change is in moving settings from Control Panel applets to Settings app, and limiting of group policies functional on Pro version.

    Of course, there are more improvements under the hood.

    But as MS provides update for all builds, and newer ones often breaks smth like cameras in Anniversary update, it not an easy task to justify updates.
