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:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

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 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:

Believable, Office has effectively already gone that way
