"Prevents others from tampering with important security features."

By others they probably mean anyone who isn't Microsoft themselves and that switch is just there as a placebo effect.

Prepare yourselves for Windows 10 May-hem. Or is it June, no, July

Deozaan:
I don't think this is related to the 1809 update, but I suffered a BSOD yesterday and afterwards my computer would not boot and all my attempts to "repair" the issue would not resolve it. So I made a backup of the important files, wiped my OS drive and reinstalled Windows 10 from the only installation media I had.

I feel like I just had a repeat.

No BSOD this time. But I just got done reinstalling Windows 10 on a different machine that, after a regular cumulative update (i.e., not a major upgrade), no longer had a working bootloader. And the Windows installation media couldn't repair the boot problem, once again.

The weird thing is that the machine booted up into a minimal grub-like Linux shell, and the BIOS listed that boot option as "ubuntu." But the closest Ubuntu or any of its derivatives have come to that machine was in a VM, so I have no idea how it kept happening. Maybe it was a feature of the UEFI/BIOS system, where if it didn't detect a bootloader it just adds its own minimal grub loader. :tellme:

For now it is just the source code, not the executable. For those already wanting this type of functionality (and then some): ExtraTerm (open source, works on Windows, Linux and Mac, supports cmd, PowerShell, WSL, tabs and 'terminal multiplexing').
