    The Microsoft division that's in charge of Windows is in disarray. It all started when the company suddenly decided to insult the intelligence of its user community.

    First, by not mentioning what was coming on "patch Tuesday", or even acknowledging that this day of the month existed any longer. Second, no longer describing updates in any detail...we're too dumb to understand. Third, well...just read this thread.

    New Microsoft CEO took the helm in 2014..and it's been all downhill for users since. From what I read in various forums, employee moral is heading south as well.

    I'd be shocked if any Westerners are even in charge at Microsoft anymore, to be honest. Look at all the top brass now. Look at Microsoft's support forums. Probably why they have so many communications problems.

    I have saved 2 versions of the MCT, one is for 10586.0 and the newer is for 10240 and they both still work.
    I have all of that as well. I have responded to the .iso issue through the Windows Feedback app with this suggestion:

    Windows Update needs to offer an .iso creation tool once the current version of Windows has been in use at least 30 days. Some users need an .iso file that can reinstall or repair install Windows on another computer or offline. With the official Media Creation Tool site now only offering build 10240 at least provide a tool controlled by Windows Update.

    My thought is that Windows Update ought to provide a button to do this under the Advanced Options so that users don't have to go to a website but can do it right in Windows Update. Or, even better for those on metered or slow connections, simply provide an ESD to ISO function to generate an .iso file directly from the files already stored on the computer. I hope a few people upvote it.

    I don't see what the big fuss is about here. A update is a update no matter how it comes out to you.
    Except this isn't true. An update applies very differently from an upgrade. They are not even comparable.

    The one and only thing that they have in common is that both can come through Windows Update.

    With all due respect, you might be crossing a line here. Please reconsider.

    I personally think a lot of lines have been crossed on internet forums such as this.

    What are the newbs supposed to think/do? BTW 10586.3 to 10586.11 was about as smooth and trouble free as an UPGRADE that I have ever experienced. TY developers.

    Well, there are probably MORE Windows users in India & the Mideast, than there are in the United States. They're receiving the same slap in the face from Microsoft that we are. What the world is witnessing and experiencing is a Microsoft that's going through an internal crises. Hopefully when it emerges, the company will be more like the one Bill Gates founded. One that respects the end user. If going back to a Purchasable O.S., is the price for re-gaining respect, I'm all in.

    Yeah, but that is moral equivalency thinking. Each case on its own merit. I think it may violate the terms of service linked at the bottom of the page. To quote in pertinent part,

    Don't you think the poster might want to remove or edit the comment before a moderator comes along?
