    WOODY’S WINDOWS WATCH

    By Woody Leonhard

    Two weeks ago, Microsoft started rolling out the latest Windows 10 feature update — to little enthusiasm from customers.

    Yawn   another Win10 release?

    If you’re running Win10, you may have already seen an offer to “Download and install” version 2004. Or you might’ve seen a notice that your machine isn’t yet ready. As usual, the situation’s a bit complex — unnecessarily so.

    But as with every new release of Windows, you’re well advised to avoid Version 2004 for now on any production or personal system.

    Read the full story in AskWoody Plus Newsletter 17.22.0 (2020-06-08).

    UPDATE: Tero Alhonen reports on Twitter that a Surface Pro 4 is getting Win10 version 2004 through Windows Update.
