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!

Full changelog:

WebVR info:

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.

I am finding this the most adorable response to a windows update in oculus for ages.

The last major update went through here faster then herpes in a Thai brothel



Ermmm...and what would YOU know about Herpes in Thai brothels, exactly..?

@vannagirl IS A LADYBOY CONFIRMED!!! 😮 😄 😄 😄

Of course you COULD disprove this claim by PMing me a picture of yourself naked B)

I think the most dangerous thing you can do in Thailand might not be sleeping with the local populace which has a massive std rate its eating streetfood in bangkok.
WAAAGH!

@Zenbane, thanks for the heads up on this.  I didn't know this was coming.  I had a few problems with the last one.  Uggh, maybe I'll delay it for a while to see how it goes for the Rift.  Not feeling good about this.

Yes they were called up to their CO. I doubt that was anything though to any call up they had with a wife or GF

wow i totally forgot of the streetfood, cheapest way to live but dangerously

back to subject, how to block this update, it was hell many progs were installed but not installed after that creators. There is no way to turn them off now?
