Nice. Did I mis this? I'm a part of the insider I guess I'll find out in 2 weeks eh?

Take care and I do agree. Forcing you to relicense when a major update comes is not acceptable in my humble opinion.

Usually the feature (major) update is shown as "Feature update to Windows 10, Version my". Starting on October 17th, some folks will see an entry called "Feature update to Windows 10, Version 1709" as part of a list of updates.
An important thing to note: starting from the feature update coming out this month, individual updates will have their own installation progress messages.

its easy to tell when a major update has arrived.
if you go to settings and then updates it will tell you something like windows 10 build 16299 or so on.
if it says this its a major upgrade.
if it tells its a cumulative update then its a small one.
if you are a member of the windows10 forum on you will always know when is the major update arriving there is a major update arriving on 17th october and for some it has already arrived

Regardless of the gyrations one can or cannot take under the various

The vendors who do not need to have their customers holding their feet
to the fire. This update delivery paradigm is not going away and for
application software not to recognize it is outrageous, to put it mildly.
