Hi,
Briefly I'd imagine if you were set to accept them and not used delay...
First thing I do is delay for 365 days

Windows 10 Decrapifier

I may be wrong, but I believe using the Windows 10 Decrapifier - https://community.spiceworks.com/scr...fier-1803-1809 will remove a lot of headaches (if it works as intended as far as I can tell you shouldn't get feature upgrades automatically... but I haven't been running it long enough to confirm (and the 1809 update has come, and gone, and come and gone again several times so not sure if my 1803 install would have received the upgrade notice yet).

Lol exactly what I was thinking. With Linux you can chose to be on the bleeding edge and wonder if each update will nuke your system and not be able to boot or you can sit back and watch the show with an LTS version. With Windows now you get a sort of beta rolling release that's force installed, no choice in the matter. While there are LTS versions of Windows, they are basically unobtainable to the average consumer.

ThrashZone Hi,
Careful what you wish for
Looks like MS is becoming a OS that auto flashes mother board bios without any warning
Friend had his x299 flashed yesterday.

In my opinion it's both. With releases every six months they, the Insiders and OEMs end up running themselves over finding and troubleshooting bugs and problems and getting accustomed to new features and before you know it the next update has arrived. It's too short of a window with or without a QA group, things tend to overlap in such short time frames.

I tried a few days ago and did get 1809 directly from the Microsoft tool included in the link in OP. Both with iso, direct to bootable USB and the upgrade tool, all worked fine (been testing a few versions of Windows lately so got the chance to test it all). Perhaps not available in your country? (Think I read something about Microsoft releasing updates sooner to certain places at times).

They say they listen, but as of yet they have proven that they are still doing whatever is written in the plan.

tpi2007 This one is weird, I wonder exactly what went on with this one:


[TPU] Microsoft Halts Windows 10 October Update Rollout Yet Again, Affects Only Some Intel Users

Quote:
Microsoft has blocked rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update on systems using Intel Integrated Graphics with specific driver versions. Apparently audio playback, when using a monitor connected to the IGP, will no longer work after the upgrade to October Update.

According to Microsoft, the underlying reason for the issue is that "Intel inadvertently released versions of its display driver [...] to OEMs that accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows."

If you want to work around this, then check your Intel driver version using GPU-Z. If you see "24.20.100.6344" or "24.20.100.6345", just upgrade your graphics drivers and you should be good to go.


"accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows"





So, Microsoft told Intel that certain features would come with the October Update, Intel worked on their drivers to take advantage of them, then Microsoft couldn't make it work in time, told Intel, but Intel had already released the drivers or forgot to remove said features and Microsoft didn't properly check what kind of drivers they were putting in Windows Update?

Whatever the reason, updating the OS with new features every six months is good to project onto customers the pretence that an OS can be a service instead of a product, but it's not so good when it comes to the actual OS. I wonder if Microsoft will ever hear the feedback that is coming from all corners to switch to a yearly feature update. They say they listen, but as of yet they have proven that they are still doing whatever is written in the plan.
