Any bets on how bad the new Bloatware-as-a-Disservice release will be? The Rejects of Redmond are due a major screw up again.
Release Channel Windows Insiders were treated to Build 19042.508 of Microsoft's flagship operating system last week as Microsoft readied the OS for an October release. "We believe," said Insider bigwig Brandon LeBlanc, "that Build 19042.508 is the final build," although the company admitted it would "continue to improve the …
My work Lenovo E585 ThinkPad still hasn't had the 2004 update switched on for it, apparently because of disagreeable drivers causing boot loops. Fingers crossed that Microsoft and Lenovo can sort their shit out and the 2010 update or whatever it will be called isn't so fucked (to use a technical term).
Actually there's two peaks, one in spring and the other in autumn.
Something about higher dimensional effects but I am not entirely sure on the specifics. Yet.
Incidentally I solved the mysterious problem with my R11, its "allergic" to NFC @ 13.56 MHz
Put it anywhere near an active antenna and it goes splat and turns off/crashes/etc.
Talk about unusual, perhaps Acer can get back to me?
Oh, how I dread that. When Widows updates, it decides that you are doing it wrong and it 'fixes' it for you. Never mind all the time you put into making Windows work like you want it to. Oh, no. MS knows 'better'. I'd best go back to a metered connection so that I wont be blindsided again. Apparently a metered connection will stop updates cold in their tracks.
After being burned with Microsoft feature/quality updates, I do not install them right away. I set feature updates to wait 90 days before being applied while quality updates get the 7 days treatment. Microsoft removed the ability to do that in the settings for 2004, so you now have to go into the group policy editor to set it. It's almost like they want people to have broken computers. Even so, that gives me time to tweak the image using DISM and apply a few updates and such before I install it. I don't know if they are not testing their software or what, but it seems that lately everyone's USB devices break with each update. They can't even seem to get USB-3 right. We were promised USB-3 since 2010 (IIRC) and it still doesn't work, or works sporadically for the majority of people. With such a bad rap, Microsoft has announced Windows 10X. The problem is if the team remains the same, then 10X will be plagued by the same problems as 10. After this, I think my next system will run Linux.
Was running 19042.508 on my very very old dell Studio 17, but as of 930pm BST I am now running 19042.541, no idea what the changes were, but it seems to of installed easily enough. Have to give some credit to Dell I dont think I've had any issues with driver updates on this machine and I think originally it was running Vista.
