  • Bumps on the road to the Win10 version 2004 upgrade

    I see the same pattern, every time Microsoft releases a new version of Windows. This time’s even more bizarre than usual:

    • Microsoft won’t install version 2004 on any of Microsoft’s latest hardware
    • The “Update is on its way” message doesn’t make any sense
    • Intel-based machines with Optane memory are getting crushed

    And there are loads and loads (and loads!) of problem reports

    Do yourself a favor. If Windows Update gives you the opportunity to “Download and install” Win10 version 2004, say a prayer for the cannon fodder (we appreciate their problem reports!) and resist the urge to click. There’s nothing in 2004 that you need right now.
