    No, there are still too many bugs being reported. MS even confirmed, that 1909 will not be really an upgrade, but more like a service pack, since they have fallen behind and 10 needs to be properly fixed.
    Yep. And that is an understatement!

    The reason to upgrade to 1903 was because of Intel video driver problems. This became worse with this version. So, after "playing" with it for a few hours, I reverted to 1809.

    If anyone knows how I can find the source of the problem, it being the video chip, or the driver, or the monitor, I would be very grateful.

    Intel seem to be prone to issuing drivers that 'break' Windows 10, this was one such issue in 1809 (supposedly resolved by the May 21 CU).

    Microsoft has identified issues with certain new Intel display drivers. Intel inadvertently released versions of its display driver (versions 24.20.100.6344, 24.20.100.6345) to OEMs that accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows.

    But there are other yet to be resolved MS/Intel issues in 1903...

    Microsoft and Intel have identified a driver compatibility issue on devices configured with certain Intel display drivers....

    To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on devices with certain Intel drivers from being offered Windows 10, version 1903, until this issue is resolved.

    I too had Intel video issues and rolled back one of my machines to 1809.

    The symptoms are seen in 1903 when playing a long (2 hour) .mp4 video in the 'Films & TV' app (aka 'Movies & TV' outside the UK). Trying to jump forwards to (say) 1hour 45 mins by clicking on the Seek bar the system would hang for up to a minute with about 40% CPU activity before the jump would complete. On the same machine In 1809 the jump forwards is instantaneous. This same effect is seen in all my other video processing apps, such as video editors....

    Hey, I'm all for Windows 10.

    However, I'm an IT guy. What about the everyday user?
    Hope people know about this forum!

    1903 will mature at some stage.

    FWIW.

    I see no reason for me to install 1903.
    I'm waiting for the update to be offered to my machine, via WUS.
    When the time comes for that to happen, I won't have much of a choice, but to go with the flow.
    Sticking with 1809, until such time.

    I know, I am running it just fine too, but the OP asked, if 1903 would be stable enough for him and it probably would not. The best choice to have a rock-solid 10 is to run the oldest supported version, currently 1803, but since he is already using 1809 without problems, there is no reason to upgrade, it is not like it will get any better. The fact, that MS postponed 1903 for so long, speaks for itself. The only reason they released it was, that they had no choice, even though there were quite serious issues, like crashing Settings.

    I have just made the experiment by renaming the Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy folder. But in doing so this completely malfunctions the Start menu from opening when you click on the Start button! Doesn't that not do it to yours as well?

    Yes, but I have not used Start since Windows 8.1, so I do not care, I even wanted to get rid of Start button, but I use right click menu, so I can not. I think, there are some Start shell replacements, if anyone wants it. I like to torture 10 as much as it tortures me to see, how much it can take, before it breaks. Like I am testing, how well it runs without Task Scheduler service, since it disables all useless tasks and decreases exploitability level, as it is being used for UAC bypasses, like the currently un-patched vulnerability (patched by 0patch).

    Micropatches - 0patch

    The only problem is, that Task Scheduler is used to update certificates, used by browsers, last time I tried it, it did not go so well, but 1903 made some changes, I could even disable DHCP, so I will see.

I know MS is working on a FIXED version of the Fall Update. I was one of the people that installed on four PCs and have only had minor issues. My question is the FIXED version for me too? Or only people who never installed 1809?
