    In the first place, I have never heard Microsoft employees called Insiders. And no, I don't understand your rancor against Microsoft. Insider or not . . .

    When the Insider Program was first announced, it was to recruit people to "preview" (Microsoft's new word for beta test) Windows 10. An example of that recruitment follows as:

    Windows Insider Program | Get the latest Windows features

    Become an Insider: be one of the first to explore new Windows features for you and your business or use the latest Windows SDK to build great apps.

    If you look at the bottom right of the Windows page, you will see a watermark of the version that's running. Mine currently says: "Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview. As Insiders, we test the beta (and sometimes alpha) product Microsoft releases to us. The bottom line is that anyone who has signed the Windows Insider Program agreement is known as an Insider. Thus, when you denigrated Insiders, it hit a nerve.

    As far as I know, Microsoft employees are not Insiders, although those working on the Windows 10 code do test what they're working on.

    As an Insider, I respect what Microsoft is doing with Windows and take my "job" seriously and without rancor against Microsoft and its employees. There have been some great things done with Windows 10 and yeah, there have been some near disasters as well. 1809 is a prime example.

    For my part, I will continue to do my best to help make Windows 10 the best it can be. I will also continue to offer my opinion in the most diplomatic way possible.

    Like Mama always told me, "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." Although I still can't understand why she thought I wanted to catch flies.
    I think I've clarified my opinion enough.

    The main message was clear: it's stupd how Microsoft is handling this situation just releasing deafening silence.
    The insiders thing was clarified too: I migh did an incorrect use of the term because I didn't want to talk about the ones who are on the Insider program. My respect to those. I was talking about Microsoft as a whole thing, including employees, bosses or whatever. I think is easy to get the point.

    Just to put it clearer: Microsoft's way to handle this disaster is SH**. Absolute outrageous.

    And not, I'm not affected by those ugs, although I'm runnnig 1809 with the latest update (the .55). But with all this noise, is easy to get the Damocles feel about this build. Moreover if, again, Microsoft says nothing. And maybe I'm wrong, but I suspect that the re-visited version will be launched as if anything happened.

    Is that unappreciated or deprecated, or a feature reducing in value - lol?

    Hi folks

    I seem to be stuck with an un-updateable build -- can't get the 107 update -- this is still on 55 and just forever stays in WD defender update.

    Windows 10 October 2018 Update rollout now paused-winver.png

    Going to trash this build but what to go to --there's too many versions / options out there concurrently -- goodness knows what the various paths mean any more.

    Do I have to roll back to 1803

    Cheers

    Join the insider program in the slow or preview ring. It is the only way to get it.
