It’s supposed to roll oout today, April 30th and it’s already 4PM and I’ve yet to get any notification regarding it.
Anyway, any of you folks excited for it?
I am hoping this update will go as smoothly as the last one, the Fall Creator’s Update, with little to no hiccups
That said, when FCU came out my system needed to reboot four (4) times BEFORE the update fell through. But there were no issues afterwards… well in my experience anyways…
Also this isn’t a hiccup or anything but, two weeks ago I experienced a weird issue booting up my system. When I booted up my usual icons were gone and all that’s left was the recycle bin icon, as if it was a fresh OS install. And in the middle of the screen was this image…
*That image isn’t mine BTW, I just got it from Google.
However, the OS popped up a small window telling me that it (the OS) failed to log me in as my Microsoft account wasn’t recognized. And that popup prompted me to sign out and log back in, so I did. And once logged back in, I got back my usual Desktop setup.
That hiccup happened on two consecutive days and on the third all went back to normal.
Reading up on Redstone 4, I found out that it was supposed to have been rolled out on the 10th, so I’m guessing my system caught the update early on and afterwards removed it? ??? And what’s stranger still is I’m not even subscibed to the Insider Program, Microsoft’s Program that lets their users try out new update builds ahead of everyone else to Beta test them for issues and bugs
jk guys but I love my Linux (Ubuntu) partition to bits. It saved my windows so many effin’ times I have no idea how people live without dual boot 100% honest here.
Also Wine is a butt-saver when it comes to games. Won’t work for all, but having a library of 450 games, I have enough on Linux + Wine to keep me entertained for quite some time should 10 come knocking at my door like “bish time’s up”.
I think the only thing I’m looking forward to in this update is the settings menus being flushed out. I don’t think I’ll use much of the other stuff. I’m interested in seeing what the new game bar looks like, but I still won’t use it most likely. Seems inferior to OBS.
My biggest beef with Win 8/10 is that they removed the Windows Photo Viewer. I managed to get it back, but it’s so seriously annoying when this massive photo 3d or whatever editing software comes up… For a while I was us MS Paint until I got photo viewer back…
I know people who are still on windows vista, it’s better for some reason or another.
I just hope they bring back all the correct things on the control panel, they took away some commands at some point and I thought I’d gone crazy.
They really don’t want you in there, messing with the individual settings on your computer, apparently… They are convinced that it’s the the next best thing that is absolutely optimized for every person and every situation…
Is not the first time they mess with Photo Viewer either, they removed Gif animation support for that thing after XP I think, I even went to the forums to see if it was a problem with my PC just to find out a recommendation from the help team to use a Web Browser instead
