Until this happens, Microsoft is blocking updates for machines running these programs. "We can't wait to see what unbelievable experiences developers can produce using Visual Studio 15.9". But you may have to wait awhile to get it. Updates for some products that resolve the compatibility issue are already available, others will become available later this month or are listed as TBD.

The October Update ran into trouble shortly after its October 2 kickoff following reports that it was deleting the personal files of a number of users. In response, Microsoft pulled the plug.

So there is no choice for businesses but to make do with * a href="https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4471218/mapped-network-drives-don-t-work-in-windows-10-version-1809?ranMID=24542&ranEAID=kXQk6*ivFEQ&ranSiteID=kXQk6.ivFEQ-kzOyLbJ21SgHbn_T4CJarw&epi=kXQk6.ivFEQ-kzOyLbJ21SgHbn_T4CJarw&irgwc=1&OCID=AID681541_aff_7593_1243925&tduid=(ir__src01fjspk9pxkxvd3ez3pcicm2xkd3ktgykfuu200)(7593)(1243925)(kXQk6.ivFEQ-kzOyLbJ21SgHbn_T4CJarw)()&irclickid=_src01fjspk9pxkxvd3ez3pcicm2xkd3ktgykfuu200" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *Microsoft workarounds for now.

Microsoft generated its fair share of criticism following the October Update debacle. Is a biannual major update schedule for Windows 10 too challenging?

Microsoft has so not far revealed any possible changes to its Windows 10 update schedule. Using the Windows Insider Feedback Hub, testers can now indicate the impact of a problem when sharing their feedback.

Even though the researchers found the impact crater in 2015, it took more than three years for them to verify the discovery. The scientists wanted to be sure, though, since this would be the one of the 25 largest impact craters on Earth.

But, even if Microsoft is A/B testing this advertisement, it's our job as Windows users to be upset about it and show Microsoft we aren't happy.

When installing a feature update, you're actually installing a new version. On two of those computers, I was able to snag the update by going the usual route. Once the update has proven to be reliable, the rollout begins to consumers and then to business customers through Windows Update or as a manual install. Click the button to Check for updates. So, your mileage may vary as well.

Starting with Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a new servicing model known as "Windows as a Service" (WaaS), which simply means that instead of getting a new version every three years, you get incremental updates that speed up the integration of new features and simplify the process of keeping devices current in a fast-paced digital world.

As always, whether people take to the new white theme will very much be a case of personal preference, and we're not sure that it's our cup of tea from the screenshots that we have seen.
