@Origami Cactus you mean the 1809 days? i ran the insider builds for it and i didn't notice. so there's that.
also they listen really well. i can't speak for insider Windows but i talk daily with the community manager for Edge on the Microsoft Community discord, and i've reported some bugs to her personally and lemme tell you they listen to the insiders.
now yes, that's an entirely different team working on a seperate project, but still. you can't generalize microsoft as one giant corporation. there are many teams there and yes, some are easier to reach than others, but still, in general i feel like they listen.
I mean even the 1907 had a controversy, so windows blocked some devices from receiving it.
So did the 2004.
To be fair, 2 months seems to be when windows has fixed most stuff, but they have limited it to 35days in 2004, which is pretty unacceptable.
To be fair, you have a very safe parts list on your pc, and if you use normal programs, then you shouldn't notice any issues either way, but as it stands every major windows update manages to break some niche professional program, so i just can't be bothered to loose any more time reinstalling windows than i already have.
Lets agree that for normal users, timely feature updates are okay, but if i payed for win 10 pro, i want my pc to be stable as long as i need it to be, not risking with pushed on updates.
@Origami Cactus it's 1909, and i'm not aware of known issues at the time. maybe with drivers but like, they didn't update affected devices. i know 2004 has issues with Storage Spaces (barnacules talked about that on Tech Talk) but like who uses that as a general consumer... also they are not updating affected devices. what more can you ask of them to do? not update any devices until all possible issues are sorted?
also please remember that even the data deletion thing was a VERY small number of users. as i said i ran insider for 1809 and it was fine for me. like, as always with these things it's an insanely small minority but the media clickbaits the hell out of it.
