This will highlight any interesting new Windows API changes which are available in Windows 10 version 1607. Part one of this review will concentrate on the “shared” header file which contains the defines which are shared between Kernel mode and User mode. The upcoming second part of this blog post will look at the “um” folder differences which contain the user mode header files.

If you want to run Windows 10 Home then you will have to agree to Microsoft's terms, and those now state that you agree to have updates automatically installed on your system.

You're agreeing to this when you accept the terms of the licensing agreement (you do read the EULA, right? Right?). Specifically [emphasis added]: "Updates. The software periodically checks for system and app updates, and downloads and installs them for you. In fact, the only say in the matter you'll get is when your system is rebooted -- you'll be able to choose between an automatic reboot, or a reboot at a time that's convenient for you.
