    If you got the notification, then I would suggest to do so. If not, then wait until you do.

    Depending on how satisfied you are now with your current OS. If you're happy, why gamble? If not, maybe it's time for a new OS and different problems.

    I've been receiving offers for 1903 for months, however; I'm quite happy with 1809. I also read at least 10 new posts every day of people who have been quite challenged by 1903. Just saying...

    I'm only speaking for myself here, but I am happy with 1903. It has corrected a number
    of problems with earlier versions and I appear to be one of the few which have had
    little trouble with it. I have upgraded a number of old computers dated 2001-2019
    without trouble. I have even upgraded a Nextbook (tablet with addon keyboard)
    with the original win 8.1 32bit compressed os to win 10 1903 and it runs good.
    I am not an IT guy. What I learned I picked here and other places.
    In the end its the Operators Choice. If your happy with what you have go for it,
    its your computer

    You shouldn't base your likelyhood of problems by the problems posted here.
    It is the main reason for this board.
    If you have a problem then others users can probably help.
    Judge by the solutions offered . Friendlyness, and the folks going out of their way
    to help.

    Microsoft think so, having now declared it ready for business use....

    Microsoft said:

    I certainly do not intend any disrespect to anyone. I have immense appreciation for the support provided here and the awesome care provided to many.

    Here is what I can't fathom; the last KNOWN issue was resolved on 0930, about 2 days ago. Almost every PC is unique in how it responds to updates so, when do we decide it's safe for our own unique PC? If they're all somewhat different do we just jump in because that's what everyone else is doing?

    Sure, Microsoft has now released it for business and that's a great sign of confidence BUT if my OS is very stable and satisfies my needs/requirements AND Microsoft is about to launch to even more users, WHY wouldn't I just wait a short time and see how things work out or not?

    Provided I'm not using 1803 or earlier, what do I possibly have to lose other than following the collective and feeling all fuzzy because I'm with those guys and gals.

    One more reason for me to wait is I'd expect faults to be corrected more expediently after business deployment.

    Microsoft has been stepping in the right direction but I'm not quite ready to blindly follow their directions. It wasn't that long ago when they were just doing whatever they wanted without any concerns for your preferences. I can't forgive and forget quite that fast. Your mileage may vary, and you're all most welcome to your opinions. Thankfully, we can all make the choice for ourselves.

    That's the end of my rant. Thanks

    Sticking to an older OS doesn't protect you from such known issues. Have you looked at the known and as yet unresolved issues for 1809, 1803 or earlier? Many of them are the same as the 1903 issues, and are not due to 'instability' of a particular OS but are common to patches delivered to all version that are still receiving CUs. In fact, even W8.1 and W7 get many of the same fixes (and consequent issues). For example, the intermittent printing issue.


    Microsoft said:
    Intermittent issues when printing
    The print spooler service may intermittently have issues completing a print job and may result in a print job being canceled or failing. Some apps may close or error when the print spooler fails and you may receive a remote procedure call error (RPC error) from some printing utility or printing apps.

    Affected platforms:


    • Client: Windows 10, version 1903; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803; Windows 10, version 1709; Windows 10, version 1703; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016; Windows 10, version 1607; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2015; Windows 8.1; Windows 7 SP1


    ....We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

    While I understand that 1809 and prior releases may be susceptible or already contain many of the same features, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    My approach is simple; if your current OS is meeting your needs and expectations, why gamble that the next one will work as well? Over the years, Microsoft has delivered many interesting surprises.

    I refer back to my earlier comment, I believe that almost every PC is somewhat unique and will respond differently to another OS version. Could anyone rationally say, this is not true?

    And now that ms has released 1903 to the business community, this will just provide more exposure to more PC's and provide us with more assurance it will actually work on our own devices. Plus, when they identify more OS surprises they'll get fixed faster.

    If my OS will continue to be supported by ms and secure, what's the hurry to upgrade to an 'unknown to me and my unique PC' new OS?
