    I regard all feature updates as garbage as MS cannot be bothered to do effective software QA and relies on early adopters to be beta testers. It's always prudent to defer feature updates for say 3 months.

    I expect the "victims" to be paid for all the hassle they experience. But, oh well.

    Maybe MS has learned their lesson. I can't imagine that more than say... 11 people, actually "bought" Windows 10.

    MS believes experience is its own reward

    I just stay on the installed version until either it breaks or is no longer supported. Then I do a clean install of whatever the current version is.
    That's a lot of unnecessary work! My desktop PC started life as Windows 8 and still runs fine under Windows 10 v1909

    This is a thread than can (and possibly will) go on forever -

    Microsoft's QA process only goes so far. Due to the complexities of Windows 10 they need to have a responsive, dedicated channel for outsiders to post their concerns.
    Naturally, MS will need to devote more QA resources to testing, especially when a feature update like 2004 is introduced.

    It's time for polishing the software and holding back on new features until W10 is a rock-solid product, IMHO.

    FWIW

    Technically, not an update, but, Windows ME was the worst of all. The all time biggest fail from Redmond.



    /e I haven't been keeping up on the earlier versions of Windows 10, but is MS still following their "every other OS suxxors" plan?

    Win 95 = sux
    Win 95 OSR = great
    Win 98 = sux
    Win 98 SE = great
    Win ME = sux
    Win XP = great
    Win Vista = sux
    Win 7 = great
    Win 8 = sux
    Win 8.1 = sux less
    Win 10 .......... ??
    For me, Windows 8.1 was a sweet spot. Even when things are working well with Windows 10 1909.

    IIRC, Windows 10, at least before 1903, at least on laptop drives, seem more likely to be corrupted, SFC corruption reports haunt me!

    No, the 20H2 feature update has already been named as version 2009, build 19042. It is currently with the Insiders and, as with 1903/1909, the feature update is to be done by a small Enablement Package. Barring any unforeseen problems a target release date around the end of October seems likely.

    For me it's a lot of unneccessary work re-appying all tweaks and customizations along with stripping out the stuff that I don't need every build. So that's the reason that I don't rush to upgrade. It saves many hours of effort spread over many days.
