The November update for Windows 10 is here, marking the first major public update for the operating system.




Performance is said to be better in general, and boot time is specifically named as being 30% faster than Windows 7. Cortana now supports writing with pens on the Surface and such, now sends you event reminders and can help you get where you need to go with Uber (as we saw with previous Insider builds), and becomes available in Japan, Australia, Canada, and India (English).


Edge sees better performance and security, acquires tab preview functionality, syncs Favourites and Reading across your devices, and if you're in the US, it will notify you of coupons while shopping (via Cortana).


You can also expect some unnamed improvements to Mail, Calendar, Photos, Groove, Xbox, Store, OneNote, Solitaire, and more apps.


Grab it through Windows Update now.
