No change: Windows Update still as bad in Windows 10 Technical Preview
Running Windows 10 Technical Preview, and Windows Update is as bad as ever.
Rule 1. Don't switch from Fast to Slow Releases.
Rule 2. Stay on Slow.
10041 has just spent the last two days attemping to install 10049, and downloading 9GB of data in the process, yet has failed everytime, luckily I'm not using 02's Giffnaff at 20p per MB.
The new start menu is 10041 is back to the Windows 8.1 'modern' like crapness too. It was looking promising, now its looking like a Microsoft Power struggle of teams - Modern v Classic. In the meantime, the technical side of Windows Update is the same clunky shit as ever.
Its as though, someone high up in MS Dev was sidelined / left at Christmas, and everything since is downhill, towards 'modern'.
Microsoft really need to start using the Fedora / Red Hat Model, (Experimental - Cutting Edge / Mainstream - Conservative). Messing with the MS Crown Jewels like this is making them look like a laughing stock, compared with say - iOS / Yosemite releases. (and they aren't great of late).
