I have a couple of questions:
My work computer clearly state that I cannot get the update at this time, due to a blocker. That is great, clear communication. Could be more detailed, but ok. Looking at the blocking list, I sort of guess the Connexant audit chip is the issue. So HP needs to deliver a newer driver.
Now my home computer and my Surface Pro 4, when I check Windows Update it tells me nothing!
Does that mean it is OK to manually install the update? Or is the blocking message just failed to display? Or are they just not making the feature update available to me at this time because my machines is not yet on the targetted list / group?
This to me is where it breaks down. Either make the thing available when you say it is available. Or be clear that it is available, but they have not specifically targetted your computer yet for an upgrade. Or simply move away from all this and state, we will automatically upgrade computers. If you download the manual tools, we will at the time of install apply compatibility / know issue checks before allowing you to proceed. This will be an online only experience going forward.
Oi Microsoft, can you please just communicate!
Does it bug anyone else that Brad has a tendency to keepn talking while he is turning away from the microphone to pick up something or point to something behind him resulting in a section of the podcast that is not audible?
For many this is a non-issue. You live in a country that has super speed broadband and a 3gb download is couple of minutes of inconvenience. For you this post will make no sense.
For people like me living in a country where 4mbps ADSL is considered broadband speed, Windows Update is a mess. The cumulative updates makes things worst, they are huge in size and while they download the internet is basically useless.
For our business it is even worst. There we have 12 Windows 10 computers and the past week have been a collective nightmare. Most of these machines are downloading Anniversary update and it is a mess.
We have turn on the ability to get updates from other machines on the network. However, that does not appear to work. Despite similar machines and successful installation on several of these machines, we have gigabytes coming down, while our email and other business essential apps are slow.
Now, I understand for first world countries this is not a problem, however, for us it is crippling. We had to implement network shaping on our Fortigate to throttle Windows updates. I beg Microsoft to please give us some control over the timing of downloads. Not just the installation and reboot.
