Does Microsoft Love Us? Why was Windows 10 free?

The phenomenon was known to Windows users. Some update does not work and problems start, which stop with Microsoft intervention that with an update fix fixes the situation. With the coming of Windows 10, instead of reducing bugs from updates, there is an increasing number of reports with problems related to them.

So we've read for updates never ending their installation ever, or even worse for updates that, after a restart, destroy the system.

Some systems still lose their disks because Windows 10 doesn't see them. Reports on this topic began in early August, and while some issues have been fixed, SSD freezing seems to be stable, or has not been fully corrected.Windows 10

It is also quite common that updates are delayed, and may take hours or more to complete. Also note that there are updates that are not completed and Windows 10 automatically returns to a previous state of the system.

This has happened recently to users who tried to install the cumulative update KB3194496. The issue was caused by Xbox Live scheduled game storage feature, even on systems where Xbox Live is not used at all.

All of the above would be permissible, or we would be more tolerant if we were using beta versions of Windows 10 Insider, as preview versions are more likely to justify such behaviors. However, "Final" versions used in production environments still display many bug reports for each update released from the "fixed" channel of the operating system.

Here's another Microsoft "innovation" that has recently begun to feature too many cumulative updates. This means large single patch that includes updates for all components of the operating system.

Cumulative updates can speed up the update process, but make things much more difficult to troubleshoot. If a problem occurs, you should remove the update as a whole, and you could simply remove the update that was experiencing the problem.

How do you hear the above? Let's continue because Microsoft does not stop at them:

The company does not give Home users the ability to completely block the updates or stop their automatic installation. In fact, if you run Home or Pro, you have very few options to check which updates will be installed on the system.

While Pro users can postpone updates (they can not block them), the postpone is only applicable to updates that Microsoft does not consider critical. This means that all security updates will be installed immediately, even if the Snooze Updates option is enabled.

The Group Policy Editor is not available in Home versions. The program provides the ability to change a policy for Pro users, which allows them to disable automatic updates altogether.

In line with all of the above in the new Windows 10 model that is now served as Windows as a service, or Windows as a service, all users of the operating system should expect to always have the latest Microsoft technology on their computers, even they do not lift it.

As we had reports from iGuRu.gr the company seems to have turned into a huge playground for testers. You may think you are running the latest stable version, but all of the above proves the opposite.

Although the company has several beta testers grades for Windows products, it is unable to issue updates that just work. There are internal beta testers, through Microsoft, for example, and all Windows Insiders on two different rings that test Windows 10 beta builds before they are officially placed on the fixed channel.

So while Enterprise (Windows for Business) users can completely block updates, users of Home and Pro should install them.

What does this mean;

All Windows 10 users are beta testers who test "free" Windows for Enterprise Edition customers.

Let's go again: There are internal beta testers, through Microsoft, all Windows Insiders on two different rings, Home and Pro users of Windows 10 are basically beta testers.

Taking into account the issues that are regularly reported whenever new updates are released, it seems that these updates have not been tested well enough.

Home and Pro users who did not pay Windows 10, but upgraded them for free with Microsoft's offer, report to the company via telemetry useful information that is used to fix bugs before releases are released to valuable business customers.
