Just learned about Eve today (from MSPowerUser) and I’m both impressed and excited to see the V on Nov 21! Wish I would have learned about this months ago to be part of the specs team! However, as a long-time Surface owner and an IT Administrator who manages over 100 computers and 20 Surface Books for our organization, I’m curious: How does Eve plan to distribute your inevitable firmware and driver updates?
Pushing out new drivers to hundreds of machines can be a PITA, so I was thrilled when Microsoft started deploying Surface firmware and drivers through Windows Update. I can’t tell you how many hours/days that’s saved us! Clearly that’s not an option for Eve, but will you at least have a small agent application that can check for, download and install updates (either automatically or manually; preferably with command-line options) – something like Lenovo’s excellent System Update tool?
Please tell me we don’t have to download each individual firmware/driver update from a website and then install each one manually! Pleeaassee!!!
