    under the Baobab tree

    1904

    Who cares about 1809 really what was new an ugly dark theme and a new screen capture tool just to introduce more bugs and slower performance.
    They can release it next year and I would not mind.
    much faster performance here, sorry.

    Hi there

    why not call it "The Halloween Edition" - very appropriate as there will always be "Ghosts in the Machine".

    1809 works for me - can't say mega problems -- just dislike all the Non pro stuff -- "candy crush 3 " or whatever installed by default on Pro editions - these things should be 100% user selectable !!!!.

    New snipping tool doesn't have the ease and functionality of the current one -- I don't care if potentially it can design the next generation of A.I or whatever when all I want is a quick easy clean screen capture like the current snipping tool has.

    Cheers

    They are "user selectable". I have an install of Windows 10 Home 1809 here with no Candy Crush, March of Empires, Bubble Witch, etc. And, no - I didn't remove them after W10 was installed.

    Just don't have your computer connected to the Internet when installing Windows 10. No matter how much it insists (especially 1809 which also has a 2 to 3 minute "pause" after the 2nd reboot during the install where it is presumably looking for an Internet connection).

    I only let Windows 10 connect to the Internet after I have all of my drivers (from the manufacturers websites) installed and all my privacy settings, etc. 'tweaked'. I also turn off and remove all the tiles from the Start Menu (not sure if this is also needed to stop Candy Crush and its ilk from installing but I don't like or want the tiles anyway).

    In fact, I have always considered not allowing a computer Internet access during any operating system install to be a good idea, not just for Windows 10.

    In the UK, it is just a pathetic marketing scam to sell cheap crap from shops and for pubs to act like St Guinness Day.

    We have Guy Fawkes Day near same day - much nicer event (apart from efforts Health and Safety Nazis who work so hard to emasculate any organised display that public can only view them from ten miles away now!).

    Sadly most of the fireworks in the small villages around here have died a health and safety death, going to one on Friday though with my camera.
