Yeah I do a daily image backup anyways. However, it looks like my system
may not be compatible with this build, as soon as I began installing it,
within an hour, it stopped the installation and gave me an option to
revert back to the previous setup.

Obviously it's a highly controversial upgrade, maybe it's best to not
ever upgrade to it, but Microsoft is already talking about the 1904
upgrade. I haven't been offered this upgrade yet. Microsoft usually
doesn't allow an upgrade between two non-adjacent versions. Just
concerned that I may get stuck on 1803 forever, or I'm going to be
offered the 1809 just weeks before 1904 is offered to me, and I'd have
to go through two major upgrades soon after each other.

I never got offered 1809 because I could never get 1803 to install
properly, so I was still on 1709. I finally cloned my system drive a couple
of times [a couple of years ago when my first SSD died suddenly, my copy of
it on another drive wouldn't load properly, so I had to start over from
scratch], and used the Microsoft Windows Update utility to download 1809 as
an ISO. I mounted the ISO and ran setup.exe from there. Installed fine and
works great. I'm hoping when 1903/4 is ready it will go smoothly as well. I
always set the delay updates for 30 days so I can see if there are any
problems first.

My Win10s are still on 1803. As I see it, they work reliably and as a
result I also can work. If a newer version such as 1904 brings something
to the table that I can't do without, I'd get a computer known to be
compatible with that version. But, I don't see anything like that in
1809, so...

I find it to be more stable.

More stable than what? Given the exponentially wide range of hardware,
firmware and system configurations I doubt that there is a general
stability factor between any one Win10 version and all of them.

than the version he was using before, most likely 1803.

there is, but nothing is perfect and there will always be *some*
problems. overall, successive versions bring improvements, if nothing
else, security patches. not upgrading puts yourself and others at risk.

It's more stable on my machine.

There are two computer here in this house: mine, a custom-built
computer; and my wife's, a Dell. Both are running 1809 and neither has
ever had a problem with it.

So far I've got one machine up to 1809. I did it manually on 2/5/19;
Windows Update did not push it to me. Only the usual annoyances: network
share settings were put back to defaults and a few associations switched
back to modern apps from my choices. Happens almost every update. I don't
understand why it's so hard for MS to just preserve my settings.

Also, Epson V300 scanner drivers were removed in 1803, and this persists
in 1809. You have to install them manually, and there are serious issues
with them, which is probably why they're no longer included. It'll still
work, but the driver can lock up your scanner to the point that you have
to pull out the power jack to get it back.

Two of my other machines have Windows 10 Home edition on them. Neither of
them have been pushed 1809, even on a consumer update schedule. My other
desktop is on 1803 and set to a business update schedule, so I don't
expect 1809 to be pushed onto that until around when 1903 launches.

But nothing controversial happened on the one machine I did update. It
still takes too damn long, but it worked (almost) perfectly. There's no
burning need for an upgrade, but I'll bet it goes fine.

One notable thing broke: Network discovery for workstations in Explorer.
Your computer may not show up on the network workgroup until you restart
the Function Discovery Resource Publication service. Even a "delayed
start" doesn't work any more. I have to do it every time I reboot.

Easily fixed. I set up a script that launches at any login to restart the
service. If you need to know how to do that, let me know: it can be fixed
with a batch file and Task Scheduler.

And hey, new stuff! 1809 has done away with the "recovery partition" (at
least on the machine I upgraded), so there's that. Now it's much easier
to overprovision an SSD because they don't mess with your trailing space
on the drive. They've also done some nice things with apps (a sort of
Device Stage like descriptive panel) in the Start menu when you use
search, and they've added an updated snipping tool. Other (minor) Start
menu issues that I've had have been fixed. There's probably more in the
release, but that's what I noticed so far.

So, thumbs up! Do it. But back up your system drives first. Do *not* rely
on MS's rollback function. I've had complete failures with that,
requiring a bare metal restore from backup.

Yes, I have a set, as I always Upgrade manually.

But I do have one drive with a test install on it,
waiting for 1803 Turnip to turn into 1809 Coach.
For once, I want to see it Upgrade without me
intervening.

If the automation is going to work, it'll have to
work in the next month or so.

And the Heidoc URL generator, can give you a URL for 10240
if you didn't get an ISO.

Same here. Lenovo E531 still on Win10 1803 because 1809 wouldn't or
couldn't finish the installation.

I recently acquired a used Lenovo desktop that was still on 1607. It did
update to 1803 when I first connected it to the Internet and finally
updated to 1809 today.

Windows has just installed the latest cumulative update on my Asus desktop. Still 1803, build

Another update, Microsoft just all of a sudden made 1809 available to me
through the normal update procedures, and it installed it without any
problems (much to my surprise)! I don't know why when it did it through
the Update process it worked, but didn't work when I tried it through
manual update process?
