    Umm I think that it got rushed a bit with release because of the deadline. It's so buggy. Wish I didn't delete windows.old.

    It is step in right direction but it got rushed and we have half finished product now that WE WILL be testing it for months until we get it stable...

    Same story was with 1607 and disk usage. It got fixed after month or so.
    I couldn't disagree with you more

    ... I sincerely hope MS soon seriously slows the rate of these big updates and just delivers security updates but I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon
    Well, RS3 is scheduled later this year, probably in November (as November update in 2015) and there is also RS4 on track next year... but since Microsoft has ~8 month development cycle now, it looks like next year we will see only 1 release, probably in summer just like Anniversary update last year... what happen next is a big unknown

    My mother-in-law, wife and daughter would probably have no idea their computers were updated to Creator's Update if I didn't tell them they were.
    I upgraded my wife's yesterday when she was out as she hates the "don't turn off your PC" upgrade message. I didn't mention it and she didn't notice.

    That is how it should be I think.

    I like some of the changes but then I use Edge (save-as) and Hyper-V (resizing console).

    Now when it's official I could find no problems but during it's preparation there were some bugs of course. You can't really compare Insider versions (essentially beta) to finished product. Maybe not many exciting features to your average user but there's a lot of stuff under the skin. MS still didn't deliver all the updates they promised during famous introduction and are still pending. Maybe a bit overambitious in the beginning.

    For me, the update did eliminate some errors but gained a new warning dealing with "Hello". Oh well!

    Thank you! It annoys the hell out of me when people have issues with their own system, but decide to blame it on buggy software. Common sense. If it were buggy, all installs would be buggy...and all would have issues.

    Not to mention there are billions of different combinations of hardware possible then add onto that a billion different possible combinations of software installed - "But if it doesn't work on mine than it's Microsoft's fault and Windows is crap! And I'm going to wait until Microsoft fixes it!"

    Yeah, I know what you’re saying but think of it like this:
    The guy wants a PC, there are thousands of variations on offer & he buys one.
    Next thing is software. Once again there’s loads to choose from so he buys some & while he’s at it he adds a few peripherals.

    So he’s now up & running & then Windows comes along with an update and borks his machine. He’s got a pile of work to do & data he needs to access. He’s got steam coming out of his ears & a lot frustration he needs to vent.

    So where’s he going to go? The PC industry that sold him such a multi-configurable box? The software industry where he got his applications? The hardware people that offered him numerous add-ons & peripherals?
    Of course he blames Microsoft and their update – what else can he do?

    Now I have every sympathy for Microsoft, it must be a hell of a complex task dealing with millions of weird & wonderful configurations & they cannot be expected to achieve 100% success rate all the time. But you have to see it from Mr Punter’s point of view: his once fully working PC suddenly isn’t working anymore.

    And all things considered, the problem is Microsoft’s because of the situation they’re working in. I know it’s not pleasant having to hear someone blowing off steam about how crap they are but unfortunately that’s the way things are.

    Microsoft isn't crap. Most setups work quite well.

    Updated mine last night, went smooth and without a hitch.

    I'm not being very creative though...
