[WindowsC] Windows 10 October 2018 Update is rolling out once again
 
Quote:

Starting today, Microsoft is making its Windows 10 October 2018 Update available again to users who wish to download the update as soon as possible. This comes after Microsoft originally pulled the update due to a serious file deletion bug back in early October, which has now been fixed.

John Cable, Microsoft's Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery said the following:
"…We have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss. Based on this data, today we are beginning the re-release of the October Update by making it available via media and to advanced users who seek to manually check for updates."

Third time is the charm as they say?

Five more problems up to now (in addition to the file association bug, the patch for that one is still only in testing phases with Insiders). The list has just been updated this Friday, so possibly still more to come next week.


Here's an article on some of the bugs, but it's from the 15th of Nov, so it's already outdated in terms of bug listing, but it sill has some comments regarding the mapped drives bug.


I like how they note right at the top on the last issue with the Radeon HD 2000 and 4000 series chips (btw, they forgot to mention the HD 3000 series, it doesn't seem to make sense that they wouldn't be affected) that they are no longer supported by AMD. Well, it turns out that the last drivers available from AMD for those series for Windows 7 and 8 (not 8.1) are from 2013. So, how did people end up with Windows 10 installed in the first place? Well, because of two reasons: 1. AMD and Microsoft made a deal to provide "driver support" (direct quote from the link above) for Windows 8.1 and 10 through Windows Update directly and 2. Microsoft did push - and almost imposed, aka GWX'ed - Windows 10 on Windows 7 and 8.1 machines running with Radeon HD cards back in 2015 and 2016, so there was no problem on their end back then and the drivers existed, so let's see what their next move will be, considering that if people had stayed on Windows 7 they'd still have more than a year of support left and Windows 8.1 still has support for more than four years.

For now they say that they are investigating the issue.


Also, more ads, now they are testing putting ads in the Mail and Calendar apps.

Hi,
That's what is needed more adds

Even if you do use Microsoft for email services why would you use Outlook.com when you can easily setup a local email client (e.g. Thunderbird) to fetch the emails via POP3 and never be subject to any kind of ads/tracking ever again.

You mean version 60.3.1, which was released last Thursday (15th of November)?

Yes, it is pretty much supported.
