Hide your Rifts, Windows Fall Creators Update is coming

Microsoft is now done with feature development on the next major version of Windows 10. Dubbed the "Fall Creators Update," this update is expected to launch on October 17, 2017, and will focus on a whole bunch of new improvements for Windows 10 users.

This update includes WebVR support! This is great news for folks like myself who are interesting in building WebVR Apps as business solutions. However, I am a bit nervous about the potential for this Windows update to disrupt my Rift's ability to work properly. Microsoft is notorious for throwing the baby out with the bathwater. So I'm hoping this update goes without a hitch!

On October 17th, EdgeHTML 16 will be released with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and the era of Windows Mixed Reality begins as headsets and motion controllers become widely available, enabling low-cost, immersive experiences with WebVR in Microsoft Edge.

I expect it to have no impact at all on the Rift.

A Windows update mucked things up before; prior to you arriving at the Summer Sale.

The chances Windows will get it perfectly right?

I'll need to edit my reg to make Windows think I'm using a metered connection again... I'd like to hold off on the update until I've seen if it's got any big bugs like last time.
Hey, I have a signature.
