    03 means March, if they are not late again.

    I'd rather have one feature update per year with far fewer bugs!

    1 major update every 2 years would be more sane. Maybe that'll give them enough time to think them over and say, "You know what?, let's get rid of these stupid apps and bells and focus on computery stuff instead".

    First half of year 2019 next release should be feature complete, whatever that means in Microsoft time and Microsoft release schedule, nobody really knows.

    None of the Windows releases has really ever been late. There was never an announced release date that was written in stone. 1809 did not mean that Windows was scheduled to be released in September, nor did 1803 mean it was scheduled to be released in March. Those numbers are just identifiers for target year and month by when the next release should be feature complete. If it takes 6 additional months to fix bugs before it's stable and reliable enough to be released to the general public, then so be it.

    I fully agree! The apps can be scheduled to be released alongside new Windows releases all year around anyways.

    If my memory is right, we've been getting updates in April and October for quite awhile. Of course, I can't guarantee the time frame . . .

    I've downloaded "Feature Update version 1809" and all I need to do is restart to complete the install.

    However, I just wanted to know if "version 1809" will give me any speed benefits? I've got 6GB of RAM but I still find my PC running slow when I need to switch apps within Google Chrome.

    1809 will probably not improve performance for you, unless your system is a bit bloated and the upgrade gets rid of most of that bloat.

    If your computer is running on a slow Hard Disk Drive rather than a Solid State Drive, then Windows won't be that snappy, no matter which version you have. The difference between HDD and SSD is like night and day.

    Your 6GB of RAM should not be a problem, but more RAM would not hurt. Personally I have 8GB, with no issues. Chrome browser is a huge memory hog so closing some old tabs helps a lot.
