However, Microsoft says it plans to make the feature available to users with older laptops in the future. Microsoft has already doled out two major upgrades to Windows 10-the Anniversary Update (Redstone 1) previous year and more recently the Creators Update (Redstone 2). Customers have been asking Microsoft for a more predictable release schedule, one that would be simple and easy to follow, the company says. Office 365 ProPlus will have its major updates at the same time. Following the release of Creators Update, all eyes are now on Windows 10 Redstone 3.

The Power Throttling feature that will probably be rolled out with Microsoft Windows 10 Preview Build 16176 will provide up to 11 percent savings in CPU power consumption even in most "strenuous use cases".

Technically, Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus, and Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager are all being aligned on the same schedule.

Accused Ohio "Facebook killer" found dead after pursuit
The behavioral health agency where he worked said an extensive background check before he was hired turned up nothing worrisome. Police investigating Stephens, though, say they have found no evidence indicating he actually killed the 13 other people.

What is more significant is that Microsoft is committing to twice-yearly updates for features and security, which is in line with their roadmap for Windows 10. It's worth pointing out that when I surveyed IT Pros earlier this year, they preferred one major update per year but at least Microsoft is now being more transparent about when they are targeting the releases. For Microsoft, though, this could mean less auspicious feature bundles, a la the Creators Update, which didn't quite pan out as promised.

Previously, the Windows 10 platform benefited from two or three updates annually. Now nearly two years after the OS was released to the public, Microsoft has some concrete answers. "Until this new requirement goes into effect in 2020, Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 2016 perpetual clients will still be able to connect to Office 365 services", the announcement reads.

Last month Microsoft announced, in part, on its support forum: "Windows 10 is the only Windows version that is supported on the following processor generations: Intel seventh (7th)-generation processors, AMD "Bristol Ridge" and Qualcomm "8996". Microsoft felt it needed to clarify this aspect of new Windows 10 releases for the sake of "clarity and predictability to organizations".
