    I guess Dona and her team should take a quit really fast, quickly. It all begins with Insiders nonsense, unneeded features and their inability, to connect the upgrades. It is beyond any logic, that there are different bugs between stable branch and canary/alpha/beta/preview branches.

    There are people saying Intel could be the saviour for pc gfx market...at least Nvidia haven't released a driver that puts a windows release on hold

    Seriously though it's time these companies realise automation test process are not always going to be best solution. Get a q&a team in ffs and do the job properly for major releases at least. It's making major corporations look dumb as crap.

    I also guarantee that half the issue is lead testers are under pressure to release updates in line with a projected roadmap. Project managers don't give a crap, just want it live regardless of issues reported.

    What the heck are Microsoft doing and why did they force the 1809 update to me via WU in the first place? Everything with Windows 10 seems to get more borked by the day!

    I truly believe after two major updates, let's say 1803 and 1809, the next ( 1903 ) should be focused only on bug fixing without any new additions.

    This should be their major plan. Not to mention one major update with additions and one without. Why are they so much inlcined to add new stuff with each major update?

    What's the issue?
    My Vega 56 is in RMA so I've been using the Intel IGPU and have not been having any problems at all.

    Edit.
    Just read and it's the audio via it.
    That's why I don't have problems.

    Isn't Microsoft's job to test drivers before they put them in updates? Because you know, manufacturers could provide a faulty drivers? Windows Hardware Quality Labs my ass.

    Uh... they DID get rid of their Windows [QA] team. This is exactly why we're seeing these problems in the first place - they expect the public to do testing for them.

    So, mind explaining why the update is actually delayed? Mind explaining why Windows 7 or 8 users aren't getting problems? Mind explaining why you're so positive MS isn't at fault here, despite their recent poor track record and all signs obviously pointing at them?
    These problems only come up whenever they release updates. So, despite the fact you feel spouting hate looks pathetic, having such strong positive biases are no better, either.

    Anyone actually read the article? Who here even uses Intel display drivers? Doesn't effect 99% of us. Moving on. This forum is becoming an embarrassment. Already using 1809.

    The only embarrassment is your post. Ever used a non-gaming laptop? Sheesh.

    We're allowed to have opinions on issues that don't directly affect us without it being an embarrassment.

    And my opinion is that Win10 doesn't really improve on anything over 7, in many cases it's a step backwards. I'm sure it's better under the hood, but it has yet to manifest improvements in usability for my daily tasks. Your mileage may wary.

    I have already read the site where HardOCP posted this story from. This has nothing to do with Microsoft other than they properly identified a problem and did something about it. A problem that they did not cause in any way, shape, form or manor. Oh well, continue your regularly scheduled bashing of Microsoft, I am sure pesky little things like facts will not get in the way. :D

    And you blame Ford if Shell produces a bad batch of gasoline as well? Sheez dude, yes, MS has caused some serious issues but, place the blame where it is due, on Intel and OEM's. MS did right by pausing the update once the issue was found, no need for the constant drum beat of MS can do no right, ever. :rolleyes:
