both.

 

the reason why build updates (and some bigger updates in between) show up as a seperate button, is so that they dont process automatically the very next time windows decides to shove them, and ofcourse gives users the chance to check for updates without shoving a big update.

Just upgrade. Updates for current version are for people who don't want to upgrade. New version already contains all fixes from previous version. In case 1909 it may be a little different, but similar - if you made updates first, upgrade will go faster (I checked that by upgrading many computers last months). But after all you'll end with fully upgraded system. You'll do it fine no matter what. Just check for updates after upgrade.

Microsoft has a name for people who click Windows Update on their own. I don't remember what it is, but I do know that they get updates pushed to them first. When someone complains about being an unpaid beta tester for Microsoft, that's usually why. Unless you want broken shit automatically delivered to your computer, don't proactively click Windows Update. When something is necessary, Microsoft will push it to you automatically.

they dont push it any faster, updates get released on a specific date, endpoints pretty much run updates at their own pace, and are automatically installed whenever windows decides to run updates.

the difference is, when you install manually, you usually do so pretty quickly after release, so as a result you are the beta tester, because you were the first one to update.

 

in my opinion, you want to stay ahead of automatic updating, because automatic updates only happen when you least expect it (or, when you have the least time to deal with issues). and whenever you do update, make sure you've processed everything, or windows update will just go right back to messing with you.

 

also, microsoft changes workflow about windows update faster than they do build updates, that thing about clicking the update button may be more outdated than you give it credit for.

If someone don't want to update system, it's his choice. He can even use DOS and text editor and still made something great (like writing bestseller novel and become a millionaire). Telling people who update faster that you that they're free beta testers and complains at the same time that some people stay with win7 is strange. It means that only those who update system the same way as you are ok.
