        I’m currently running Windows 10 Home 1909 (don’t ask), and I’ve got a random question: Is it safe to update from that to 2004 or 20H2 now?

        v1909 does not go EOL until May 2021.
        We are still recommending waiting to upgrade to v2004 for a while longer.

          Hi PK, If you don’t mind I’ll piggyback on this question. I understand staying on 1909 and that’s what we are doing for our clients with it installed. Problem is many of our users are buying new machines with 2004 installed so I may jump ahead on my workstation. Any valid reason in your opinion to go 2004 rather than just go straight to 20H2?

            Yes, 20H2 just came out. Give it a few months.
            v2004 and 20H2 are the same core. And both still haven’t ironed out all the bugs (credentials, still h/w blocks,…). They’re getting there, but I’d wait till after the first of the year and see what the third-string MS devs mess up over the Holidays.

              Thanks PK! I usually do a fresh install and archive my drives every couple years on my main workstation during the holiday season and I’m due. Think I’ll go 2004 so I can get more familiar with it and all its shortcomings then just dump 2009 update on it later.
