    Don't talk to me about 1903, everytime i attempt to install it just sends my system into a mess. Currently if i have it installed my wifi drops constantly and very weird colouring from my monitor but 1809 is just perfect. I so wish ms would get to grips with their releases and hotfixes.

    Isn’t 1909 supposed to be released today? It’s patch Tuesday and it’s October

    Gotta suck when support for support for 1803 ends, yet windows fails to upgrade to newer version.

    Wow. Only two years of support for an OS now from MS. This sounds like a joke, except it isn't funny.

    Maybe the title should be:
    Still using Windows 10?
    Could be a better question IMHO.

    For most people, I don't see the problem with that since Microsoft allows everyone to update to the latest Win10 version for free.
    And I guess people using Win10 and needing the best stability would use the LTS edition.

    It's not that they allow the update. It's that they force it. And it's a very intrusive update. It's actually an installation of the OS, not just an update.

    So I don't want to update. End of story. Every time I do, something breaks. It even repartitions my disk without asking me. Didn't have this problem with XP or 7. I'm still on 1709 for that reason.

    And I am on 1607 LTSB....so far most stable, similar to my sec os, w7. Gaming wise only!
    If there was more dx12 games, then this garbage may, may be more popular, despite its flaws. For now, nah...

    Though Windows 10 and 8 have a huge advantage over Win7 for Battlefield and the other games running on Frostbite 3, due to DX11.1. Vulkan is also supposed to run faster on Win10.

    Benchmarks also showed that Win7 and 8 have alot worse performance after the Spectre and Meltdown mitigations, than on Win10.

    intresting I think this is the update that just got pushed to my dads pc? or maybe it 1809 I dont know, I just know there was no updates pushed or received on that pic since 1709 was install,

    My personal PC is still running 1809 then again not been around to use my pc seeing i am 600+ miles away from it.

    They really need to sort there crap out cause forced updates I can get IF they work properly and dont fubar stuff

    On 1803, tried 1903 and it almost fubar'd my system (user profile shambles, multiple paths not working including MS's very own Outlook!). Before doing a Rollback, which worked and luckily hadn't time-expired, I headed on to our friendly Microsoft Community for help. Was told, in the end, that "this is a mess created by Windows Updates".

    I was intending moving from my current Intel system to one of AMD's November releases including a full OS install. If MS fubar's my system again before the new build and doesn't offer a suitable rollback do you think this would be defined as 'reasonable behaviour' by MS in a court??

    I didnt even know those old build only get update for about year before the stop pushing updates. Pretty sure by this time my dads pc got 1706? push to it was already not getting updates. which would explain why when I look at it the other 3 days ago it never had single updates since that build upgrade. I had reset the whole WU just to get to see and find 1809.

    IF they gona force updates, and cut support to build older then year old, they really need to make sure there crap works.

    I stuck 1903 on both my uncles pc and I was fullly shocked by the fact the "upgrade" didnt fubar anything well one of the 2 was upgade from win 7 so i just clean install it on that one after words so other one it went fine on was probably just a fluke cause 90% time I need to do clean install of new build cause something breaks that I cant fix . I was even more shocked by the fact the "upgrade" didnt reinstall a whole bunch unwanted apps and games on the start menu or on the system.
