    Polite way of saying it is consistently inconsistent.

    Very true, it doesn't take much or very long to make 2 supposedly identical systems work differently. I saw it with 2 new Desktops purchased same time same vendor same ship date for our local animal shelter a couple years ago.

    I know itís a US holiday today but Apple managed to release iOS 12.0.1 today! Makes MS look even worse
    Today is more or less just a local government holiday and not a major holiday.

    Banks are closed, so it's a national holiday.
    I cashed a check today at my local bank. The other banks were open also.

    I just emailed them and said to put the script they would read to me in a PDF and send it back. I'm sure it will be here shortly......
    You do know that it will be in the wrong language.

    Well according to Wikipedia it isn't isn't observed in AK, AR, CA, DE, FL, HI, MI, MN, ND, NV, OR, SD, TX, VT, WA, or WY. Seems if you are in NJ then it is spreading.

    A good thing imo (although not my business one way or the other of course)

    Alright, that might have come out a bit wrong. As a software developer myself, I know there exist no such thing as completely bug-free code.

    What I meant to say is that known issues should be resolved before release.
    Completely bug free coding does exist but only in very simple systems - pseudo code example follows

    print the square of a numbers from 1 to 10.

    For i = 1 to 10
    print i, i*i
    next i

    It is the moment you start adding conditionals, things start to fall apart

    print square of numbers from 1 to 5, cubes from 6 to 10.

    For i=1 to 10
    If i <5 print i, i*i
    if i >5 print i, i*i*i
    next i

    Ok a trivial example but the eagle eyed will see the obvious mistake here. 5 squared will not be printed.

    Compound this by millions of lines of coding, and it is impossible to test every pathway through the code. Indeed, sometimes coding gets stranded or executed erroneously.

    The code base is just so big now. Its no wonder things get messed up. Some would say bloated. I do think there are some things that should be optional that are installed with no choice in the matter. And you shouldn't have to use power shell to uninstall some of those default Apps either. I don't get why the uninstall option is greyed out for things that have no impact on the OS as a whole. Actually I do get it, its likely due to $ revenue for adds etc in the "free" Apps.
    And I also think there may be to many cooks. With all the baggage Windows now has how do you keep track of who codes what? And all the interdependence's? I kind of think its only going to get worse not better. Especially at this twice yearly release schedule.
