The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update now has a release date: October 17. Microsoft started finalizing the release last week, and we'd expect this release to follow the pattern seen in previous Windows updates: the final build will be done some time in September and roll out to members of the Windows Insider program's fast, slow, and release preview rings. Then it will hit Windows Update. From there, we'd expect a slow ramp up in availability.

Not the most substantial Windows update for regular users, but I do like the faster update cycle for Windows. I'm glad the monolithic releases of yore are gone for most users, while enterprise users are still able to opt for the Long Term Servicing Branch for the more monolithic approach.

I wonder what THIS one will break.

1703 necessitated a clean reinstall.

What will it break?

Too much to mention if past updates are anything to go by.
The worst thing other than the stability is their insistence in removing all your nice little customisations especially the ones to stop the telemetary slurping.

MS really do need to stop doing this. We own the computer not you (unless it is a Surface which in this case, the jury is out)

They are really flogging the Surface on UK TV at the moment. Fiddling while rome burns perhaps?
