Commercials AdDuplex celebrated the imminent release of Windows 10 19H2 by reporting that, yes, the May 10, 2019 update is quietly doing business for Microsoft.
While it remains a shadow of the glories of the April 2018 update (also known as 1803), it had been plastered in 89.6 percent of the PCs surveyed at the same time last year, 45.5 percent. One hundred of the facilities of the May 2019 update (also known as 1903) is an improvement in the disastrous performance of the equally disastrous update of October 2018 (also known as 1809).
Obviously, the persistent appearance on users' screens warns them that, hey, 1803 is reaching the end of support, so perhaps a quick update could be in order. I will be helping. The use of 1903 increased from 33 percent last month, while 1803 decreased from 33.1 percent to 24.1 percent.
The service for all Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10 1803 ends on November 12.
The figures should be taken with a pinch of salt, as they are based on Store applications running AdDuplex SDK. But, in the absence of Microsoft details (apart from a "breathless look! We finally reached 900 million!"), The figures are a good indicator of how things are going.
Penetration close to 50 percent occurred when the Windows computer Insider issued another 19H2 update, which is expected to reach public availability next month, in the form of compilation 18362.10022 to the Slow Ring of the Windows Insider program.The update included "improvements and fixes" of KB4515384, a patch from early September that interrupted audio for some users.
The update also includes "general improvements to the overall quality" of the next 19H2 version, which is good, however, it does not detail what those improvements really are, which is less pleasant.
The gang has also promised or do something about the multitude of compilation numbers that float during 19H2, stating that you are working to move Lucky Ring Slow Insiders to the numbering 18363.x that some enjoy in the Release Preview ring.
Time is moving forward, although with the first anniversary of the Windows update fiasco October 10, 2018 just around the corner, the Windows Insider team can be forgiven for being a little more cautious this time. ®
