    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Launches With Mixed Reality Support

      "Microsoft has released the new Fall Creators Update, the latest in major upgrades for Windows 10. Many of the additions this time around are fairly small; the company’s twice-yearly cadence for features requires frequent small updates as opposed to major changes. Still, there are some improvements and new capabilities worth discussing."

       

      "First of all, Windows 10 now supports mixed reality, which is the company’s combined name for augmented reality and virtual reality."

       

      "Other noteworthy additions include “Find My Pen,” a downright creepy spyware capability that allows Microsoft to tell you where you were the last time you used your pen. This may be genuinely useful to a small number of people, and utterly useless to the majority (and by majority, I mean the majority of people with Surface Pens in the first place). If the last place you used your pen was your own home, good luck finding it. But it’s nice for Microsoft to make it so apparent that it tracks the location of your devices and monitors your usage of peripherals. For troubleshooting, natch."
