I'm on pause until the 22nd ..... Maybe longer because for the last year or more I've only been doing updates every 3 months and when I do I always do it late in the month

It is sad that Windows Updates are a bigger risk than getting a virus or trojan since I haven't had a successful infection in years .... actually well over a decade ..... But Windows update the odds are you are going to get 3 or 4 bad ones every year

Same here. I won't do another update for a while.
One update broke my go-to desk top.
I had to re-install and turn of updates.

Next new hardware won't have a Windows OS on it.

You'd think after nigh unto 40 years of writing code ms would have figured how design, build AND test its software for bugs, conflicts, and compatibility. I guess meeting / beating what Wall Stree says their stock should do is more important than clean, functioning software.

Well I run Windows on a virtual box out of a Linux. I even converted an old complex Windows 7 into a VHD and run it virtually. If something goes wrong I pull a new copy. It also becomes handy if you get infected by viruses.

I no longer have a need for Windows products, thank God.
