      Just a quick note. Those of you running Win10 version 1703 or 1709 who have “feature update deferral” set to 120 days should see 1803 in your Windows

      That’s super unfortunate timing to spend a couple hours without a machine, considering 1809 is still expected to re-release any day now…

        True, but I expect most people to dodge 1809 until we get more experience with it.

        You can look at this as a feature, by the way. If you’re set to 120 days deferral, you get upgraded to 1803 today and won’t need to worry about 1809 for months.

        As Woody said, I won’t see 1809 until probably the middle of next year, long after 1903 has been released. By that time, 1809 should be stable. That’s why I like the 120 day deferral – it feels long enough to let the dust settle, without being too far behind.

        The update from 1709 to 1803 took 20 minutes at most, btw.

          That’s more ore less what I encountered a month or so ago just as a quick test before nuking w10 to see how well the ‘feature upgrade’ worked. (usually I do a fresh installation on bare metal)

      In case people are wondering why/where the ‘120 days’ figure comes from, I’m following this for ‘Broad deployment’: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/update/waas-deployment-rings-windows-10-updates

      The update took maybe 15-20 minutes on all 3 of my machines (mix of Intel CPU’s with SSD’s) from start to finish.
