now @microsoftuk has given windows 7 an extended life here are 7 ways they could improve the #windows7 #update #ux so that someone doing a clean windows 7 install doesnt need to spend all day

  • fix the broken IE download website so you can use IE 8 to download IE 11 instead of having to download @mozilla #firefox to download IE 11
  • fix windows 7 update so you dont have to download IE 11 first (unknown error 8007000E)
  • ROLLUP the windows 7 update patchs so you dont have to spend a whole day downloading 180 patches (totalling over 1G)
  • sequence downloads by date (ie 2017, 2018 then 2019) so they are installed in correct date order instead of a random order
  • dont prompt to reboot while system processes (ie software reporter) are still using 100% cpu
  • dont say updates are complete when you will get another 12 updates if you click check for updates again
  • defer all malicious software removal tools to the end of the updates

next week we will look at 10 ways @microsoftuk could improve the windows 10 update ux

ms windows 10 (1809) desktop and server update

ms windows 10 (1809) desktop and windows server 2019 (1809) update

In early October, we paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update as we investigated isolated reports of users missing files after updating.ย  We take any case of data loss seriously, and as I noted on October 9, we have thoroughly investigated and resolved all related issues.

On October 2, 2018, we announced the availability of Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server, version 1809. Later that week, we paused the rollout of these new releases to investigate isolated reports of users missing files after updating to the latest Windows 10 feature update. We take any case of data loss seriously, so we proactively removed all related media from our channels as we started investigation of the reports and have now fixed all known related issues.

In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from millions of devices on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. There is no further evidence of data loss. Based on this data, today we are beginning the re-release of Windows Server 2019, Windows Server, version 1809, and the related versions of Windows 10.
