        Ed Bott provides an analysis of five recent Windows 10 bugs and how Microsoft has handled them. See Windows 10: Has Microsoft cleaned up its update mess? (Spoiler: Maybe).

        Warning: this article provides a more measured view of Windows Update than is usually seen here. It goes against the “sky is falling” and “Microsoft can’t do anything right” mantras often expressed.

        Nice to see someone give Microsoft a little credit for a change. I think Windows 10 in general has gotten a very bad rap that it mostly doesn’t deserve. Has it been perfect? No but is has gotten better with every release and i have had it since it was released.

        1903 at least on my Computer has been Stable from the beginning and i have had none of the problems that all of the headlines are screaming about. Most of the problems that certain people on this web site and other publications love to scream about affect a very small percentage of users but its funny that fact never seems to be mentioned and many of them are related to third party software that apparently vendors dont bother to test when there is a new release.

        It would definitely suck if you happened to be one of the few it affected but in my opinion that is what sites like this one are for to help those very few people.

        Let the flaming begin.

        And not one word regarding the firing of the QA department employees.

        Sorry Alex i am a little confused. Are you referring to what happened a couple of years ago or is this something new?

          Five years ago, so hardly topical today.
