    Pretty consistent, the other computer even though it is a complete different beast it concluded it's update in 46 minutes exactly.

    We’ve polished up the power and user menus in Start as well – including adding icons for easier identification.

    This will also be visible in the power menu on the sign in screen.
    I hope they've raised these transient elements in the visual hierarchy so we can seamlessly focus on the task at hand!

    18290 was installed after 2 unsuccessful bounces. Used Ten Forums WU Cleaner and rebooted after removing all USB external devices. Same procedure I had to use before the last 18282 update which worked perfectly. During the second bounce download I noticed a lot of disk activity on my second Win 7 Dual Boot SSD as well as the Win 10 SSD. I don't remember this in the past.

    created the windows 10 pro iso after an apparent install but the VM restarted into 18272. It is reinstalling now but meanwhile uploading the iso to one drive. Windows 10 Enterprise is getting ready. Windows 10 for Workstations is checking for the update.

    Looks like I will need to delete Onedrive from the virtual hard disk in order to upgrade. Otherwise not enough disk space - this is why the first restart failed. Naturally I will wait for the upload of the iso to finish. It's annoying but not as bad as if it were my "real" hard disk.

    Working with VMware 15 (which I got a pretty good deal with the Black Friday discount and, surplringly, Honey found a coupon so the upgrade was less than 90 bucks). Using Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco). Trying to decide between Fedora 30 Silverblue and openSUSE Tumbleweed as my 2nd Linux distro. A pleasant quandary actually.

    You know, it seems to me that at this point most people are not clamoring for new 'wow' features - quite the opposite. The consensus seems to be, even here on this forum: 'c'mon MS, slow down, forget new features, fix bugs, make it solid and reliable'. I sure don't feel a need for new features. It's an OS - let the applications get new features. Let the OS be a solid and dependable foundation.
    You are entitled to your opinion, but I cannot agree.

    A balance can be struck - each build should have some new features or else the Insider Programme just loses its point.

    The Programme was instigated to help the development of Windows 10 not just so we can act as unpaid beta testers. I am not interested in that.

    A good approach would be to permanently split the Fast Ring and Skip Ahead, and the Fast Ring focusses more on stability but Skip Ahead focusses on development.

    Then after six months Skip Ahead moves onto Fast Ring for six months of stabilisation. This means we still get new features but on a rolling basis.

    Hi folks

    @martyfelker

    why not run both !!!


    As far as the other argument about windows features :

    I'll take the middle ground on this

    both view points are equally valid -- when I'm doing (hopefully) a professional job on a clients site or doing some serious photography with photoshop / lightroom etc then I want a slick professional looking OS with none of those gimmicky tiles or other things that get in the way -- i.e a fairly boring looking but functional OS.

    On a private machine at home that I'm just "playing around with" then some of those so called gimmicky things can be quite fun. I know a load here also use Linux -- it's the same here - use different distros for different purposes -- for a NAS I use Centos - plain, absolutely solid and 100% reliable but possibly boring -- for a bit of "razmataz" I play around with Linux Mint or Ubuntu.

    So nothing wrong with both aspirations for Windows -- in any case isn't a "skip ahead" just the place to test out new features anyway.

    I do think though Windows professional should come out of the box as essentially geared for professional users and home could have all the added "special features" - rather than just have home as essentially a stripped down version of Pro -- that's a marketing issue though and I'm sure Ms didn't get to be the richest company (by share capital / stock valuation) in the world just because apple is beginning to make some errors.

    Actually, I would propose a "Business" version, a Pro stripped from all bells and whistles and just essentials specially store and APPs other than some essential like Calculator, Word pad and some like that.

    Hi there
    I remember - I think it was Office 2007 or similar when Ms pushed out a "Small business edition".

    For Windows I think also a great idea - probably easier for I.T depts who have to maintain these systems as well.

    Skippy installed fine for me - everything works apart from the total dogs dinner of Office 2016/2019. Removed and installed Office 2010 (64 bit) which ran 100% perfectly -- needed about 3 pages of updates (via windows update) as it's an old VL DVD from MSDN and needed Service pack 2 and a whole slew of other stuff. Working fine though.

    Also made external bootable USB of the system -- that way I won't contaminate laptop in any way with some of these builds re losing data etc.

    Cheers
