Thank you!  I'm so glad I recommended that bread when the new store opened in your area.  It is definitely a favorite of mine too.

We're all familiar with "Update Tuesday" or "Patch Tuesday" on the second Tuesday of each month.  Those updates include both security and non-security updates.  However, even though I identify the monthly “C Updates as "release preview cumulative update with non-security improvements and fixes", here's a link to the official description of the Monthly quality updates in the event anyone has questions.

General Software News, Updates & Discussions / Windows 11 Life Cycle
« on: July 21, 2021, 06:06:24 PM »
From Lifecycle FAQ - Windows:

New versions of Windows 11 will be released once per year. Customers should always install the latest version before the current version reaches end of servicing to remain supported by Microsoft.

Servicing Timeline will be 36 months with 1 release per year for the following versions:

     Windows 11 Enterprise
     Windows 11 Education
     Windows 11 IoT Enterprise

Servicing Timeline will be 24 months with 1 release per year for the following versions:

     Windows 11 Pro
     Windows 11 Pro Education
     Windows 11 Pro for Workstations
     Windows 10 Home*

*Home edition does not support the deferral of feature updates and will therefore typically receive a new version of Windows 11 prior to the end-of-servicing date shown.

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19044.1149 (21H2)

Note:  This update will apply to Windows Insiders in Release Preview already on Windows 10, version 21H2 (Build 19044.1147) and Insiders who were moved from the Beta Channel to the Release Preview Channel because their PC did not meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11. For those Insiders already on Windows 10, version 21H2, this update will come through automatically via Windows Update. For Insiders not yet on 21H2, if this update is available for you, it will be offered via the “seeker” experience which means these Insiders will need to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 10, version 21H2.

This update includes the following change in addition to all the improvements listed as part of Build 19044.1147:
  • We added a new policy that creates generic strings and removes branding-specific terms, such as “Windows” or “PC”, for IoT Enterprise editions. For example, we changed “computer” to “device”. Instead of “Getting Windows ready,” we changed that to “Getting things ready” and so on. These generic strings are displayed on a user’s screen when an update is in progress.
