Windows 10… an unmitigated disaster

Recently Windows 10 has been plagued by a series of not just one but several Windows Updates that have had to be pulled from distribution because of, as Microsoft puts it… “unforeseen issues”. Unforeseen? Yeah… only because you fired your whole entire software QA team!!! Now had you, Microsoft, actually kept your internal software testing team instead of “dog fooding” it to their own users they would have caught the issues before they even came to light.

This has been an ongoing issue, Windows Updates causing issues that range from minor glitches to BSODs. This time, Windows 10 version 1803 Build 17134.441 (KB4467682) has been pulled according to this HardOCP front page article. Apparently the update is causing BSODs on get this… THEIR OWN DAMN HARDWARE!!! The update is causing issues with their older, yet still supported, Surface Book 2 lineup of products.

Come on Microsoft… you’re really taking the art of failing to an all new horrible level.
