  • Are Win10 version 1909 users being pushed onto version 2004?

    Günter Born just published an article Windows 10 Version 2004: Forced upgrade without user consent

    I’ve seen reports (some noted in Born’s article) where people claim to be upgraded to version 2004 without clicking “Download and install” — which is supposed to be the ultimate gatekeeper. I talk about it in this Computerworld article.

    Color me skeptical. But I’m certainly open to being convinced that Microsoft is jumping the gun on the version 2004 rollout.

    Microsoft has a lot riding on this 2004 upgrade — and circumventing its own “Download and install” block doesn’t make sense. That said, you never know what glitches may be in store.

    Have you seen anything?

    Thx, @EP
