back to article Microsoft Windows 10 'Burger King' build 1903: Have it your way... and it may still leave a nasty taste in your mouth

Microsoft on Tuesday released Windows 10, version 1903, aka the May 2019 Update, without forcing it on folks. As mentioned last month, the US software super-biz has decided to let users of its operating system have more say in how and when updates get applied. The new humility comes after hearing feedback that update problems …

    "If Windows detects that your machine cannot start up successfully, it will try to diagnose and resolve failures due to disk issues, system file corruption, invalid registry keys, or other such causes,"

    So if the Update itself is a POS, it won't be able to resolve? Remove even? Hmmm.... looks like from the list, it's "blame the user or the user's IT department.

    It also appears that Win10 now has the Win7 ability to control updates. So when Win7 end of life rolls around will there be one-last massive update (hidden of course) to force the "upgrade" to Win10.

          You do realise that by far and by large the corporate world took one look at Win10, shuddered, said "no ******* way are we using that" and proceeded to stick with Win7, right?

          At the moment given the corporate use of Win10 is negligible, the pressure is also negligible. The screaming is going to start with the first botched set of updates to Win10 after it's deployed. Win7 support ends January IIRC, so give them 12 months to migrate after support ends (consider the slow pace of moving off WinXP for corporates) plus 6 months to run into problems caused by Win10 causing a few million man hours (person hours these days?) productivity losses, and then wait for the impressive fireworks.

                Re: The pricks!

                For many organisations, a deep-rooted reliance on Windows-only software is unfortunately still very much present. Migrating to a none-Windows platform is usually very difficult and expensive as countless existing applications need to be replaced. This is why it is often not a feasible option for companies.

                Yes, it sucks and yes, I wish builds of many essential programs were available for other OSs, but they're not. So, companies now have three options: Stick with an OS that is about to become unsupported (very stupid indeed), migrate to a Linux distro and have lots of essential legacy apps fail to work (major business problems), bite the bullet and migrate to Windows 10.

                All are crap options, but for many companies, W10 is the least crap options. Although it is still crap.

                  Or, bite the bullet and make the move to Linux today, and not have to worry about the capriciousness of Microsoft's marketing department in the future.

                  I have Vet clinics here in the Bay Area that I moved from Windows to a version of Slackware in 1999. I also had clinics who chose to stick with Windows.

                  The Slackware side just keeps on trucking, with absolutely seamless updates and zero security theater. The systems never go down unless told to go down. The only calls I get from these folks is for hardware issues (PEE CEEs and attendant peripherals aren't exactly well known for their reliability, when measured in terms of many years in a high hair/fur environment). The only formal training they received was back in 1999. They have no on-site administrator, as there is no need.

                  The Windows side, which I no longer support, has been nothing but trouble, especially whenever Microsoft rolls a revision out the door, and when the malware du jour strolls past their defenses. These systems are down for what totals weeks every year, crash fairly regularly, and need constant hand-holding by an employee who does nothing but look after the system. The only reason I know what's going on with them is because the Vets call me fairly regularly, asking if I can't PLEASE come look at their computers. I decline. I don't do Windows anymore.

                  It's pretty funny, at rad-rounds the Slackware folks are all on one side of the room, and the Windows folks are on the other ... The Slackware people don't want to listen to the constant bitching about Windows from the other side of the room.

                  What is mind boggling is the Vets using Windows insist that they HAVE TO "because compatibility" ... despite how that is obviously bullshit, given their compadres have been happily using Linux for about 20 years now.

                  Some crap options are much better long-term than other crap options.

        "adding features that in the past required third party software."

        Sorry, MS made available for Vista and 7 the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack which enabled RAW files support for several camera formats - no third party software needed. IIRC it was later integrated as an optional update for Windows 8.

        Then Microsoft stopped to keep it updated for new cameras RAW files - and removed it from Windows 10.

        The codecs were built on Windows Imaging Components (WIC) which was also supported on XP with SP2 (and added in SP3).

        As I said, it might have been a 3rd party addon.

        IF I am remembering correctly, I could view the photos saved in Fuji .raw format and Nikon .raw format via file explorer, but needed a 3rd party addon to actually do anything but look at them.

        I was hoping someone might be able to remember better than I can; i cannot rely on my memory any longer, some medication and a brain injury has screwed it up in some cases.

        it iss too much effort to fire up a spare PC and install WinXP just to find out.

        1. LDS Silver badge

          "As I said, it might have been a 3rd party addon."

          Cameras software often installed RAW codecs for 32 bit XP - but many of them were never ported to 64-bit Windows and later versions.

          "but needed a 3rd party addon to actually do anything but look at them."

          There's little you can do with RAW files - usually they can't be edited directly - especially since they are not a common format, and some information need to be reconstructed when "demosaicing" them.

          Editors convert them usually in a common RGB format to be able to process them regardless of the source. Changes need to be saved in a separate file, or be recorded to be reapplied later. Iin the latter case they can sometimes be recorded inside the RAW file - RAW files are usually a container using TIFF specification (or something alike) and besides the raw sensor data can store other information - but again it's very specific to a format, and not broadly supported.

      Re: And it brings support for the RAW image format

      And RAW is not *one* format. It's a generic term that encompasses plenty of different formats, for different brands/models of cameras, evolving as their hardware capacities do. Even the same extension for a given brand can mean different things depending what model produces it.

        'uninstallable' = "can be uninstalled". That is a *HUGE* gripe that I have with the built-ins. GETTING RID OF THEM is damn-near impossible. Well, maybe not now.

        But here's the thing: Micro-shaft took away NEARLY EVERYTHING GOOD (particularly customization) from the users, replaced it with "uber alles what MS wants", and THEN let the dust settle. NOW, they're "slowly giving back our freedom" it seems, like some kind of sick/twisted perestroika.

        Is this an OVERALL STRATEGY? You know, like a GAMBIT - 2 steps forward, one step back [in the direction Micro-shaft wants, of course]. MS wants to take over AND maintain control, and after taking too much, loosen's the reins a little so that the "stockholm syndrome" (end users liking their evil overlords for "giving them back something" after taking it all away) will work properly, boiling the frogs slowly instead of tossing them into the pot like lobsters.

        Win-10-nic is STILL "doing it wrong", the lipstick might be on the OINKY end now, but it's still a BOAR, and it's still JUST LIPSTICK.

        c) ADWARE and SPYWARE _BUILT_ _IN_

In my case, RedHat 5.1 (1999) through Fedora30 (2019) has proved "adequate" to ALL MY NEEDS. This does not mean that everything has always been "perfect"....it hasn't. But with a little patience, and a modest amount of technical skill, I've been able to do everything I needed to do for twenty years. Without any help from Redmond WA. And a good deal cheaper on certain fronts too (C compilers, database tools, graphics tools, server support....).

      What's not to like about my "mythical OS"?

    "Customers who are inclined to take the plunge can open their Windows Update settings and select "Check for updates." If and when the update appears – Microsoft is throttling availability so the version bump may not be immediately accessible to everyone – customers can select "Download and install now," provided they're running Windows 10, version 1803, or version 1809 with the May 21 updates or later.

    The download will then proceed and once it's stored, the system will display a notification that the installation can be completed with a reboot, at a convenient time."

    That differs from the usual update behavior, how, exactly?

    Do they tell you the update is optional?

    Methinks that they bet on some poor schmucks to just click away and install, because that's how they have trained the schmucks.

      1709

      So what do I do if I am still running 1709 and want to upgrade?

      For the record, I am still running 1709 and have no particular desire to upgrade.

      There's the catch. They probably learned something when suddenly folks weren't updating via the "pushed but optional" update that loaded Win10 on the PC. Then when there was resistance, they pushed even harder. Hopefully for the sane people, they will allow the option of installing updates. I also note that in Win7, one used to get to see the update contents as they were listed. Now everything is rolled up such that you don't' know what's in it without a lot of hassle.

    So, Windows gets worse and worse, Linux has too many small issues to work around, and macOS runs only on increasingly shoddy hardware. Do those arses know there are people out here who need to use these machines for their livelihood??

      Sometimes all these "Issues" are a vital part of ones livelihood. Keep em' coming!

      Besides, things changing, better or worse, helps keep the old thinker working at it's agile best.

    As long as they've solved...

    The incompatible driver bug that kills an 1809 fresh install (and why is it so hard to find an earlier build for an install). Had this last weekend when prepping an old machine to be a nephew's gaming rig. Nice clean install - allow access to internet for updates- two minutes later dead machine that won't boot into windows. Luckily I remembered the El reg articles on the intel igpu driver woes so had to roll back and install the latest drivers from a file downloaded from another machine (I had luckily put a restore point in as soon as the win x booted for the first time) .

    Lesson learnt.

    It's suppposed to be an OS, not a fulll time job

    Waaaa-aaay too much effort devoted to just not allowing MS to f*** your day

      Well then, have one machine with Linux on it (Ubuntu is nice and friendly) that is Internet ready and one machine with Windows 10 on it that has *no* Internet connection. You can transfer files via a network or via sneakernet, but as long as your Win10 box is kept off the Internet, you will have none of these problems and there is a lot that you may be able to deactivate/uninstall to boot.

    Anymore, it is as if Microsoft does not understand its own operating system, let alone its users. It should not take much more for MS to become a good reason for corporate to start going to Linux, or MAC OS.

    Sooner or later

    The final Windows version will have a big button to upgrade to Linux.

    Good old Microsoft

    "If Windows detects that your machine cannot start up successfully ... Users can direct the automated repair system to seek permission under the Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot settings.

    Good luck with that. I've consistently found that Windows troubleshooters are slightly less valuable than Clippy.

    Outlook 2016 is borked...

    Outlook 2016 is failing left and rigth, ever since yesterday... It hangs and freezes and sometimes crashes.

    Problems started yesterday and are affecting the entire organization. I did shutdown 3 old domain controllers from our old domain yesterday (the last ones from that domain), but I cannot see how this should have an impact on Outlook (unless there is something I am not aware of?).

    The windows update also happened yesterday, and even thou I have yet to discover a link between the update and outlooks horrible performance, the timing seems to be spot on.

    Anyone else having issues?

    The update was was quite successful and stress free for me, other than the fact that my PC now runs like a giant turd!

      other than the fact that my PC now runs like a giant turd!

      The next update will increase the size of the turd....and add Smell-o-Vision for the ultimate in Windows interactivity.

      I'll get me coat....

    Most of my customers ignore this advice, but back up a few times on different devices before trying any updates.
