Latest build is slow

1803 17704.1000

Site are slow to load. Even in Chrome.

Apps are slow to open. If they do open. I was waiting for like 10 seconds, it wouldn’t open.

What’s with this beta logo on the Edge icon.

    <p>I have a similar situation with slow loading websites. And I hadn't seen any other mention of the beta flag on the Edge icon so I thought maybe I was part of A / B testing group or something.</p><p><br></p><p>And OneDrive fails to start at all. The executable is still there, just will not run.</p>

    <p>I think it's service host program compatibility assistant service. It using like .1% of memory, but it goes anywhere from 30%-80% of CPU.</p>

    <p>Beta software is often slow. They will optimize later. (I hope.)</p>

    <p>I ended the service host program compatibility assistant service tasks. Now my PC is way faster.</p>

    <p>Interesting, it's the opposite for me. 17704 was so performant that I put it on my second PC that I use for work. I have found it much faster and more reliable than any previous Redstone 5 build, and 1803 too, for that matter.</p>

    <p>You pay the price for running beta software, but then, Win10 is in a state of perpetual beta anyway, and anyone who runs it is an unpaid MS tester – even if you're not actively submitting problems, MS are collecting all the telemetry they need in the background.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#288403"><em>In reply to ghostrider:</em></a></blockquote><p>I know that the preview is beta and we are testers, and it will be fixed before RTM.</p>

    <p>I have a feeling they are going to start updating Edge independent of OS updates and the Beta Tag will be a simple way to tell the difference between the last stable version and the forward moving test build.</p><p><br></p>
