Windows users always keep their eyes open for Update Tuesday news, so they can get their hands on the latest security patches and bug fixes from Microsoft. However, the monthly Tuesday ritual may fall by the wayside as Windows 10 will change all of that. The new operating system will put an end to Update Tuesday, because Microsoft will automatically send out the latest fixes and updates to users throughout the month.

[Microsoft Executive Vice President of Operating Systems Terry] Myerson promised that with the new version of Windows, Microsoft will release security updates to PCs, tablets and phones 24/7, as well as pushing other software "innovations," effectively putting an end to the need for a Patch Tuesday once a month.

Myerson made the announcement at Microsoft's Ignite 2015 conference. He also took the opportunity to bash Google for failing to make sure its customers receive prompt updates for their gadgets.
