Word is going around that Microsoft's Windows 10 April 2018 Update will land today, and not on May 8 as was previously rumored. This Windows 10 feature update was supposed to arrive weeks ago, but got delayed at the last moment due to an issue that could cause system hangs on a select number of systems.
The Register takes a brief look at some of the new features and reports this will be the first Windows 10 update to use "Delivery Optimization". We've heard some rumblings about this last year (or was it longer ago?), this is a feature that promises to significantly reduce bandwidth consumption by sharing Windows 10 updates over your LAN:
The idea behind Delivery Optimization is to let you download updates to one PC, once only, then have other PCs on your network grab those updates over your LAN. Microsoft claims “This significantly reduces bandwidth (by as much as 90 percent) and that results in a much better experience for everyone on the network.”
