Dear Microsoft,

Just a suggestion but the next time you roll out a content update for Windows 10 please test it first to make sure it isn't going to crash MID UPDATE!!!  cussing:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

There is a setting I found that allows you to defer updates for a month. Something tells me I'm going to be using that a lot...  noooo:

Both of ours are working fine with it now... Can't see much difference apart from the desktop wallpaper going missing...

wasn't a problem here but then it is a Microsoft PC.  Started it about 11pm and when I came down at 3am (to sort out cat related issues) it was all done
Well, whatever nevermind

Well Hallebloodylujah it's almost JULY and I've finally been able to get the APRIL creator's update to install without bluescreening.  Shocked:

As much as I'd like to say that this is just another hysterical Express article I've seen just how pervasive 'games as a service' has become (to the detriment of the consumer) and have a sinking feeling that we are now going to see OS as a service...  noooo:
