    Microsoft fixed the data loss issue in Windows 10 version 1809 - gHacks Tech News

    "Microsoft discovered in its investigation that the issue impacted one one-hundredth of one percent of version 1809 installs."

    That's 1 in 10,000.

    MS also implied that it was safe to install 1809, because they pushed it out to people.

    The real problem is that Nadella doesn't give a rat's *** about Windows OS software except as a platform for selling Office 365. Windows OS software ranks at the bottom as far as growth rate is concerned and Azure is at the top. It's been great if you are a shareholder but if you are a Windows OS user your future is doomed. You can't simply rely on Insiders if you don't pay any attention to what they have to say. Hell, even Vista was more stable and problem free than recent Windows 10 builds, let alone Windows 7. I've been lucky so far when it comes to problems but many have not and they will simply move to IOS or Android instead.

    Go back to the previous Windows update configuration where you could pick what and when you wanted to download and install. It was very simple for the average user to use and hide what they didn't want. If they failed to install certain updates and had issues it was their problem, not Microsoft's.

    WE DON"T NEED TWO NEW BUILDS EVERY YEAR, WTF? Is anybody here really pumped about installing a new build, especially recently? If so, you need a new hobby Even once a year is too many, they need to focus on stability rather than useless new features that nobody cares about. Look at all the problems when 1803 was rolled out prematurely and all the problems with 1809 (also rolled out prematurely) which had to be pulled. Yes, I know the rate of problems is low but to those that have or will have problems it's a big deal. It's not enough to simply state "I don't have any problems" and act smug about it. I no longer have any confidence when it comes to installing new builds that everything will go well.

    I know that the above two points have already been stated but it's just common since. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I expect ridicule for this question. What software standards has MS been awarded and claims to follow and are such standards subject to external quality audit?

    From what I have read, the only people affected by this bug are those who are daft enough to store data on their C: drive without regular backups.

    No software is or will ever be bug-free; it is written by humans who are full of bugs!

    Not disagreeing with your post, but remember.... there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of small systems out there, mostly lappys and tablets, where the C: drive is all there is. These same users wouldn't know what a partition was , either.

    Microsoft doesn't need to do anything other than offer a long-term support version of Windows 10 Home/Pro. Ubuntu also gets "feature updates" twice a year, but every other year Canonical releases a LTS version of Ubuntu with 5 years of support.

    They have been awarded ISO 9001 for QA. Microsoft Trust Center | ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Standards

    This is indeed certified by external auditors.

    I can tell you though having worked for nearly 20 years for another ISO 9001 certified software house that the audit is a joke. It basically involves the question 'Have you got a test plan?'. If you say 'Yes' you are re-certified. The kind of person who would struggle with such a complicated question (or was involved in a tricky project) were sent off-site for the day of the audit just to be safe.

    My opinion is that MS should develop their current OS Apps instead of adding new Apps. such as adding features to Snipping Tool, Media Player, and MS-Paint. MS did a great job with adding features to Notepad.

    Adding Apps such as 3d builder, Snip and Sketch, and others I really don't care about. I think is a bad idea, leading to confusion for many users

    If I repeated anything anyone already said I apologize.

    I have everything to do with Windows 10 on my C:\ Drive and I lost nothing at all. I do make Macrium Reflect Images at least every other day and twice on Patch Tuesday.

    In support of your opinion, a quote from Mary Jo's article, linked in post #1:


    "
    I think Microsoft needs to go further: It's time for the company to release at least one -- and maybe more -- Windows 10 feature updates that focus exclusively on reliability/fundamentals and not on features. Go back to basics and figure out what's not working before continuing headlong down the "we have hundreds of new features" path. Figure out how to better test OneDrive and Windows 10 together. Work with OEMs to figure out how they can release updated drivers simultaneously with new feature updates, when required. "
