That is very exciting.
Wonder what that one will screw up
So far it messed up the graphics settings on my desktop some. Not sure what else yet.
Every time one of those updates happens, I end up going through all the settings. Sometimes it changes settings and adds new ways to intrusively collect data from your computer.
On one machine it turned off the wallpaper.
On another, it jams the download at 91%, repeatedly.
Why do we put up with this trash? Let’s all throw away our Windows machines and go MAC...
pretty big deal, will interact with android (7 & up) phones & run the apps
Why go Mac when I could use my current hardware and put Mojave or whatever it is called on it and called it a hackintosh?
It only deletes offensive files, I'm sure.
Windows 10 is a LONG way from mature.
For the record, I'm not balding though my beard is getting closer to that shade of white every year...
I long ago (after the first time 10 bricked my machine) turned off all updates including the hidden ones (boy, does Billy whine at me)
There are free alternatives, for those of you who are unhappy with being the product now. Even my wife runs Linux and she's about as savvy with technology as your average Amish woman (no offense to the Amish or women).
My wife asked me to go help her Aunt install a wireless printer. I rebooted her laptop during the process. It started installing updates - it had 189 updates to install. I took the laptop and the printer home and it took over 5 hours to get through all the updates.

willing to hand out a nickle? - not so much ...
dang! I almost had it!
If you're using Win10, you can avoid most update-related headaches by using Win10 Professional, setting the update path to "Current Branch for Business," and deferring "feature updates" for 365 days.
You should also set Windows Update to notify you of updates and let you choose when to install them. That gives you a chance to refresh your backups before installing an update.
One of my laptops did the upgrade earlier this week. No problems at all. Now, what did MS do to Office 365? The icons and everything in Outlook have completely changed appearance, and that is NOT on a machine that has updated Windows 10.
I know that guy. He really gets spun up when I spell it Eunuchs....
