    Maybe I am wrong but I don't see anything extraordinary security-wise in Win10...

    For me, Device guard in Enterprise edition seems interesting. Though, since I use Pro version, I will have to be satisfied with SRP..

    Of course, transforming all users into clueless customers makes creating outbreaking news much easier. :D

    Yes, perhaps. But this is exactly the kind of information I'd like to find online about Win10 security :)

    I'm guessing it will perhaps be released in the coming weeks.

    What is meant with TLP?

    Yeah indeed, for example Win 8 had the new high entropy ASLR and expanded patchguard.
    I did read somewhere that 10 now finally moves fonts from the kernel to userland.
