    I always defer feature upgrades for 6 months to give MS chance to sort out their poor software engineering. 1803 seems one of the more bug prone updates judging by the many problem posts on the forum.

    Nah - we get same or more amount of posts after every build upgrade.

    Real answer is to make image backup of current installation and upgrade, knowing you can revert if any issues.

    That's not unusual. Enterprise customers will be fully supported for 1607 for a further 6 months, that's until about October 2018 - or longer if on the LTSB.

    Windows 10 version history Date of availability End of service
    Windows 10, version 1803 April 30, 2018 November 12, 2019
    Windows 10, version 1709 October 17, 2017 April 9, 20192
    Windows 10, version 1703 April 5, 2017 October 9, 20182
    Windows 10, version 1607 August 2, 2016 April 10, 20182
    Windows 10, version 1511 November 10, 2015 October 10, 20172
    Windows 10, released July 2015 (version 1507) July 29, 2015 May 9, 2017
    1 Home edition does not support the deferral of feature updates and will therefore typically receive a new version of Windows 10 prior to the end-of-service date shown.
    2 Enterprise and Education editions for versions 1511, 1607, 1703 and 1709 will receive an additional 6 months of servicing after the end of service date.

    I've seen you post this a number of times. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the issues are falling on either users or third party vendors who haven't prepared.

    There's no reason to assign a set amount of time. On a production, business critical system, I wouldn't jump right into a number build. However, there's absolutely no reason to run it on a less-than-critical system or VM to determine how it runs. For me, 1803 has run perfectly, to the point I am already rolling it out to new hire laptops. My personal machines have all been updated. Part of the reason I haven't had issues is that I've done my part ahead of time, meaning made sure the systems were running clean and with updated software and drivers.

    The government agency I work for just pushed an upgrade from win 7 to win 10 last month. They gave us 1607. Go figure?

    > Rant ON!

    Why all this scababble about which version to chose? The topic starter has in the end to decide for him/herself and in the end: it's his/her PC. We can't decide for him/her what to do with it, what games she/he plays on it, what apps he/she installs on it or download on it, what sites to visit on the PC.

    And in the end: Windows is just Windows, no matter how you look at it. It runs fine? Everything's OK? You hear sound? The monitor displays all the Windows goodness? Fine! Never change a winning team then! Then if all runs just fine, stop tinkering at it. Leave it as it is, and enjoy the PC fun!

    See post #14.

    Windows 10, version 1607 ... April 10, 20182

    2 Enterprise and Education editions for versions 1511, 1607, 1703 and 1709 will receive an additional 6 months of servicing after the end of service date.
    ...so 1607 will be supported until October 2018 for Enterprise customers.
