Almost one month after the initial release release, Microsoft has been able to download Windows 10th October 2018 again – this update was canceled almost immediately after the first attempt to distribute it, as some users had an error lost their data.
Windows 10 is automatically saved
Typically, Windows functional updates are distributed in stages, automatically offering new downloads for specific specific periods, which will be an exception for this time. Firstly, the proposal to install a new system version will receive two groups of people: those who are looking for updates by hand, and those who use the special media tool for the operation of the new system. If these users do not go into new bugs, Windows 10 will be available to other users in the coming weeks.
Interestingly, Microsoft's first unsuccessful attempt to upgrade systems in general is generally inadequate, and the release date and new release is November 13th. This is important for a "support window" operating system. The support period started since the same day with Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server 1809.
Due to the undesirable that some enthusiastic users have made on the Windows 10 update are available, Microsoft will tighten the software testing and development processes. A data loss error occurred before the official update was also released by the Windows Insider program user, but for an unknown reason, Microsoft did not believe that these complaints were serious enough: Microsoft's response had restricted to a new feature – pre-release probes were given the opportunity to find all errors found marked by its level of importance. For example, errors that result in loss of data are certainly more important than some inaccurate or inaccurate icons or inappropriate aligned text. However, it is hard to say how organizing will increase the quality and effectiveness of error reporting.
What will Microsoft change?
In terms of a slightly longer operating period, Microsoft has promised more openness to release the Windows 10 development and testing process, and in the coming months, you can expect to learn more about how the operators' system makers change their attitudes and & # 39 ; u processes. The quality of Microsoft software is already being evaluated at several different levels and in several different dimensions. For example, when users began to complain after the release of the operating system update, an "initial quality error" is recorded regarding the stability and reliability of the new functional update. Discovering this type of error means that the experienced operating system tests have done something from their place. On Tuesday, cyber security update updates were bubbled and "long-term quality" issues – the reliability and efficiency of more weekly updates.
Although Microsoft clearly acknowledges the problem with the latest update, the company is officially evaluating the operating system trajectory system well. The operators of the company mainly depend on some indicators used to assess the satisfaction of the operating system. The first is the "frequency of event", or the number of complaints received by the users after every system update. During the entire life of Windows 10, this indicator decreased constantly. That does something that Microsoft does well. However, events can be misleading. A Windows 10 error with a large number of users is a cosmetic mistake that has more serious messages or incidents – such as data loss – that only a very few users get it, although the last type Of event is certainly more important.
Another indicator is the "net promoter score", or an estimate of how consumers would be ready to recommend all versions of Windows 10 to their friends and family. Company representatives believe that this indicator is also rising, and the Windows 10 spring version has always been the best estimate. However, this indicator may not also show serious problems that a small number of users face.
Windows base is huge and complex – 700 million. consumers, 35 mln. 175 mln gadgets. Different versions, 16 million unique drivers and hardware appliances – so the likelihood of a specific problem that is specific to a specific configuration occurs in one another or another is huge. Data loss was only related to one of the following configurations: it did not affect Windows users who used the standard configuration, but damaged those who selected some atypical settings.
