  • Will Win10 1803 be called (yuck!) Spring Creators Update (/yuck!)?

    Posted on March 8th, 2018 at 07:41 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    WalkingCat (@h0x0d) asked someone with a copy of the next-next version of Win10 (the Skip Ahead build 17618, presumably leading to version 1809) to run a PowerShell command that lists VMHost supported versions.

    The result isn’t going to make any Windows fans happy.

    The last listed version is “Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Creators Update/Server 1803.”

    Pardon me while I try to keep my breakfast down.

      Looking at the depth of improvements, just a slight change in the name was the best idea ;).

      Redmond must’ve fired all the creative people.

        Yep, still clueless about the way seasons work on our planet.

        Dear Microsoft (again),

        Your “Spring Creators Update” will be released here when it’s Autumn (Fall).

        For us it’s actually the “Autumn Creators Update”. Not to be confused with the “Fall Creators Update” (which should be called “Autumn Creators Update” outside North America) which is released in our Spring.

        Accuracy matters.

        Yours sincerely

        Users living in the Southern Hemisphere (the bottom half of Planet Earth)

        P.S. And you’re also still clueless about apostrophe usage.

          IIRC, one of the first new versions after the original Windows 10 came out was slated to be named the “Fall Update,” but then MS changed their mind after people pointed out that it was the fall only in the Northern Hemisphere, and they ended up calling it the October (or was it November) Update.

          Now, it seems, they no longer care about such niceties. It’s almost like they’re trying to see how many users they can treat with contempt and get away with it.

      I think I will skip until this Upgrade (1803) is blessed by woody  (currently in 1703) after all we have until October to Upgrade.

      is that Ok?

        Sure, it’s OK, as long as you remember that Microsoft is making it clearer that they “own” your computer. Look at the thread with the forced 1709 update. I don’t see this changing with future releases. Microsoft will update your PC whenever they want to update it.

        Lovely, isn’t it?

          There is always a way to block updates, we just need to find the right recipe to do it.

      At least, Microsoft admits that Windows Update is broken and 1803 will show a warning sign on the Windows Update settings page when updates are available so users are aware of the mess waiting for download…

      How about Win10 1803 Spring Creators Yuck! Update?

      Glad to help!

      We all know tone-deaf people in the figurative sense. I’ve had the label applied to me, and admit it fits on some of those occasions. But Microsoft takes the concept to Quasimodo like levels and beyond.

      I have a cartoon like picture in my head of fine British man named Smythe. A mechanical worker in London who can stand in the workroom atop Elizabeth’s Clock Tower remaining blissfully unaware that Big Ben is striking 13times every hour. Yet he responds happily when asked about it, “Why yes! Wonderful thing, isn’t it!”

      There is always a way to block updates, we just need to find the right recipe to do it.

      And they will find a way around those blocks. See the latest Upgrade to 1709 that didn’t come from Windows Update.

      No matter where you go, there you are.

        As long as you detect it on time, you are fine. What happened this morning didn’t happened suddenly, this happened ’cause people didn’t block certain updates in time.

        Yeah, but the update that delivers the pushed upgrade came from Windows Update 🙂

        WU in Windows 10 is a lost cause without intervention

        some steps are obligatory to keep the current version:
        – set connection to metered
        – set AU policy to disabled or notification
        – disable UpdateOrchestrator and WindowsUpdate schedule tasks
        – use wushowhide.diagcab or WUMT to check for updates and hide the upgrader-updates

          That’s scary.

          I’m going to elevate this, and get a discussion going. Thanks!
