Windows 10 1809: Now arriving on a desktop near you (if you want it)

No doubt it will probably tie my PC for the best part of a day to get this 'feature update' so I will continue to mark my WIFI network as metered to get just security updates and stick with the last years Autumn update until the support runs out for that and I am forced to take the feature upgrades.

Yeah, looks like's already time to once again disable the 'Windows Update' service on my brother's W10 machine in the Catskills (on a sub-1mbit DSL line). I'll put the mega-"update" on it probably in Dec or Jan, the next time he brings the machine down this way. Otherwise the update will completely hang and fubar the system when it *tries* (and fails) to update.
