Strange thing is, after it installed I lost nearly 10fps off my  Cinebench Open CL score. 

Pill try Handbrake tomorrow, although I think IT's latest update runs slower.. Can't win!

The bloody thing auto-downloading crashed my overclock.. So I'll have to reel back and unplug the damn Ethernet this time. Damn nuisance.

If you check your update history and click on the successfully installed link under this new update, it states news and alerts for windows insiders.... it's probably some kind of update for Insiders Hub...

I wonder if this some sort of auto-trigger installer for programs that make a call out to see if an older version of .Net is present or not. That would be a nice idea. A nicer idea would be to have a unified version of .Net and dispense with the nonsense of having umpteen versions of .Net running all at the same time.

since .net 3.5 can be installed via the add windows software parts this update is pointless.

i would be more interested in .net 4.5 since that is what some programs ask for to get installed. so they dont install anything at the time.

yet win10 comes with .net 4.6 and no 4.5 seemingly.

I think that this is a CORTANA Update.

Cortana looks different after the update.

Namely there are no internet links after

Thanks and tech on!

Not only is there no information here or within Windows 10 about this, doing searches on the internet finds nothing.  The only other stuff I've found on it is related to "Feature on Demand for X64" language pack stuff.  And, that too seems to be people asking what it's all about.

Looks like we either just got or just got updated .NET 3.5
