Latest Windows 10 update is causing BSOD crashes

First part I agree with. Second part you are dreaming.

Linux on desktop is dead. It had its chance. Portable device / no mouse+kb is where the majority of consumer market is going. Application ecosystem is staying with Windows for desktop.

Linux NEVER achieved readiness for consumer. The fragmentation in GUI is the issue. Applications need full configurability by default via GUI not commandline for most of the market consumers to take it seriously. They never polished it to that level of user friendliness. 99% of Windows users won't do anything more complicated on commandline than "ipconfig" or "ping". Until Linux gets to that place, it will always be an also-ran on desktop and now it's simply too late.
Google and mozilla reluctance to enable hardware accelerated video decoding in Linux version of chrome and firefox contributes to failure of Linux desktop

Office workers do not to get to choose. PCs are maintained by IT crowd. Getting latest security updates is their priority to protect usually worthless information from getting into wrong hands.
Those it admins should postpone windows feature update for a year in AD group policy settings.

Not sure this happened before but the fact that this is on a security update is pretty damning: I can understand Microsoft justifying these issues with feature updates since well, it should be all to the IT admins to just not jump on any feature update right away and I do believe they have that level of control.

But security updates is the thing that everybody *should* be able to trust and jump ahead without looking both ways, that's the purpose of security updates: not having to wait to properly test and roll out a feature update and just leaving everything as is but without the vulnerability.

At the very least most companies would benefit from just using VMs for everything so they can roll back to an unpatched image in an emergency but long term, yeah there needs to be alternatives. Maybe this will motivate some industry leaders to start investing in the Linux as also a user desktop OS and not just server side but sadly, I sort of doubt it: they're more likely to consider paying the Apple tax instead and probably suffer less of these issues but without being eliminated altogether.
Actually it's not in security update. It's part of feature update that you can postpone for a year in Settings app.
I myself still use 1909 while always having latest security update

Oh ok, I was just going by the article but if that's the case then it's probably an automatic pass for organizations for feature updates.

That same guy is in every Windows 10 update issue that's posted on Techspot. You'd think by now he'd learn not to update Windows 10 due to shitty things always happening.

I don't even feel bad for him anymore.
You realize that's most likely simply a stock photo, right?

Otherwise, he would have jumped off the roof of his building by now..

Or, were you just being facetious?

And just last month Microsoft declared 2004 stable for enterprise use.

I actually attempted to upgrade to 20H2 last week through Windows Update, but it failed. I immediately ran the MS ISO download wizard whatchamacallit. PITA. The laptop is a 2016 issue. It's going to get left behind soon. I can feel it. Planned obsolescence. What irks me though, is it's a HP AMD-based laptop that I use to use for work and play, with 2 separate accounts on it. Not liking those odds, I purchased a HP Intel-based
laptop in 2019 with some custom hardware changes, and with roughly similar performance, for work-only and MS, HP, and Intel can't seem to produce a workable Track Pad driver. The other laptop is without issue there. Ridiculous.

Once a month, like clockwork....
A new set of BSOD's for Windows 10 with every update

and yet, I have not had a single BSOD in the past 12 years in Windows XP

LMAO
I keep My win 10 pc pretty much at the newest release and haven't had a blue screen that wasn't my fault (aka overclocking) had my pc for a year

Exactly, I can't remember the last BSOD I had on any of my Windows machines. And I'm talking years. I've had an application crash, but haven't had the OS lock up in 5-7 years. I usually keep up to date on the OS patches too.

Opera crashes all the time now, since the update Opera hangs then crashes build 74.
Windows like its Vaccines is Bullshit, unfortunately there is not enough people with brains creating Linux OS to take over. Why will linux never take over even though it could do it in a year, completely destroy windows, simple fact, one thinks theirs is better, PRIDE...
If every Linux Developer got together, they would make Windows look like it was still the Dos 4.0 OS...
Dream Big, Create bigger

Imagine Linux 8.a121.443234
8 on its side is the simble for infinity
a1 is the 1 edition
21 is the year found
.443234 is the number of developers
Think about this, 100 000 000 PC switch to Linux at a cost of $10 a year
$1 000 000 000 cash to pay salaries and dev costs for professional apps

Open Source everything excepting the Core which is held buy the greatest of those who develop it and not built to install, but built onto hardware that is plugged in which cannot be over written, like a bios, to update it you will need to do the same as DELL, ASUS, HP, and and and, NO MORE WINDOWS

Um ... no. That is just completely and utterly false. It isn't close to being relevant.

Linux will never catch up to Windows in software support since Windows has been accumulating software for many, many years.

The only reason Windows is still relevant is because there is no other OS that has pretty much every program made for it.

I can just imagine it....Techspot writers finds out a new Windows 10 update pushed out...

They creep down the hall to their IT guy's office and after every update they see the same thing, him with face buried in his hands because he falls for Windows 10 shenanigans yet again, only to be blasted by BSODs! They snap a picture on their phone and upload it to the new story.

So, is it merely a coincidence the image always looks the same or is it the same photo being reused over and over again? It's probably something we'll never ever know the truth about, but we can always speculate.....much like, "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie-Roll center of a Tootsie-Pop?" (The world may never know).

Well, I said back in October that I wouldn't install version 20H2 until I was certain that it worked properly. I forgot about it and still haven't installed it. I'm now thanking my lucky stars for my now faltering memory. Who knew that getting old had an upside? :laughing:
 
We went to the Kyocera site and downloaded the "classic" driver. For good measure - we also uninstalled the current driver and monitor (but don't know if that in required). Hope that helps somebody. No more BSOD when printing to the Kyocera but does take visiting every machine.

I think this is extremely close to being the case for not needing the command line at all in the more friendly distros like Ubuntu and Mint and even Manjaro. But the other part of the statement remains true: I usually cannot say "Just get Ubuntu" without some apps just being more developed and better on KDE and if I point to Mint they're immediately greeted with "You want Mate or Cinnamon?" and now a simple recommendation turned into at the very least 4 distinct flavors.

For a while it did look like Ubuntu was close to getting to that point of being the default but they made some terrible decisions like trying to over-extend into mobiles and making some UI choices that were sub-optimal at best. I really wish I could rewrite their history and had them just fully embrace Mint's Cinnamon desktop when the Gnome team started to just go into weird and unnecessary directions but Ubuntu developed unity and went into their own, different but still weird and unnecessary directions.
Yep and fragmented the application base. Windows got to where it is by massive app ecosystem and no fragmentation of Win32.

It's part of the reason why Metro dev platform failed and why modern Windows store is also virtually non-existent. If an app can't run on legacy Windows, it is sacrificing a MASSIVE portion of the marketplace for simply not enough gain.

Ah yes! And im sure you have so many activities to do on your 20 year old OS! The possabilites are endless! /s

Oh yes, indeed

My Nehalem has bluetooth 5 for wireless headphones, can run a modern outboard DAC even if the DAC does not have XP drivers (after I added an optical SPDIF port), edits uncompressed wav files up to 64 bit / 352Khz, burns blueray discs up to 100GB for archiving and so much more....

But that's just my ancient Nehalem

My newer Sandy Bridge machines are much more capable when running XP, and they also run GTA5 on my 4K TV when I boot to Spyware Platform 10

These machines simply cannot be replaced with modern gimped hardware due to the fact that Windows 10 is not Windows compatible and will not run most of the Windows Compatible Software I have for Windows XP / 7 and 8.1

As you "should" already know, modern computers will not boot to XP and Virtual Machines are not 100% compatible with many programs such as games and pro audio recording software

With these machines, I can run ANY Windows software

The possibilities are indeed truly ENDLESS!
Thanks for noticing!

Lol. Please show me your PC setup that is on genuine win XP, running a graphics card with the latest drivers that can run GTA 5 at 4K at 60FPs. Your post reeks of r/iamverysmart
