    Is Windows 1909 considered to be buggy?


    Is Windows 1909 considered to be buggy? I’m running Win 10 Home 1903 with all the latest patches/updates. Should I pause/delay before installing Windows 1909? I’ve heard that 1909 will likely be available with the Oct 2019 2nd Tues udates. Thx.

    As ever, take due precautions- make sure you have a current Windows disk image in preparation (e.g. Macrium Refect - free/paid). tenforums members tirelessly recommends the routine use of disk imaging.

    MS feature updates always have bugs sometimes serious on first release. I always delay feature updates for 6 months and allow installation of the new update when problems reported on this forum decline.

    OK, thanks. With 1903 looks like I can delay the install for max 21days. Is there a way to delay it longer? I'm on Win Home.

    Everyday I make a full Casper image of my main drive to different external drives. I'm fanatical about backing up. I also strongly recommend everyone do this.

    1909 (19H2, 18363.388) has been running in Release Preview for some time now. There haven't been any show stoppers reported, just the normal user specific anomalies and quirks. This being a Feature Update via Cumulative Update rather than a full new build greatly reduces the risk factor of installation failure. The mechanism is totally different. Taking the normal safeguards of a good system image backup, there is no good known reason to go the defer route. If your system is running reasonably smoothly (only you would know how to answer that), then there is no reason to believe it would not after the CU.

    A lot of times, this comes down to the particular user's comfort level, what he/she has heard, past experience, and reported documented issues that would lead them to delay. Do what you feel is best for you.

    There are various 3rd party utilities to disable Windows Update. There's also a tutorial on how to do that... in, yes, the Tutorials section.

    Did you view people's experience here?

    Note that as it's a CU this time, you should be able to uninstall it if you are unhappy with it.

    Hello F14, thanks for the info. That bit of detail makes me more comfortable upgrading to 1909. Now I understand how its quite different from 1903 which had a lot of problems. I'll still wait about 20 days just to be a little careful.

    PS: How do I hashtag or @ symbol a user name on this forum? # or @ don't seem to do anything.

    Like this. Put the @ in front of the user ID. @m3110w

    @f14tomcat Here the @ sysmbol doesn't do anything as I type it with the user name. Let me see what happens after I post this. On other forums I type the @ symbol and then begin typing the user name and a list appears.

    So looks like you have the type @ and then the full user name and it doesn't indicate that the user name is valid or invalid before posting. Hmmm... Not very elegant compared to other forum software. But no big deal in the grand scheme of things.

    To avoid misspelling of some user IDs that may be a little awkward to type, I do a copy/paste from the Quote function, and paste after the @

    No, there is no drop-down or suggestion list like a Google search, but TF makes up for it by being the best.
