Is version 1703 stable enough for clean installation?

    There`s no reason to go crazy customizing the CU, not with any 3rd party software anyway.

    It`s not a permanent OS, like W7 for example, W10 will forever be evolving.

    I would just install your programs and use it, there will be another update sooner or later.

    Doing a clean install is always the best option, make sure your data is backed up and give it a try.

    I didn't make a clean install and I updated Anniversary update and the Creators update, my PC still works fine and fast :)

    A clean install should be even more "stable" than update/upgrade would be.

    I just finished clean installing Win 10 1703 today and so far seems good, early days and I'm yet to familiarize myself with all of the new features.

    As a matter of interest, GodMode shortcut still creates without text under it in a clean install...

    The issue I noticed with software Corsair Link persists on a clean install also. Flickering bars over the GUI. Could be an issue with the software and 1703 or graphics drivers that the relevant people haven't become aware of.

    Of course it is, or else it wouldn't have been released.
