    "Microsoft plans big Windows 10 UI refresh in 2021 codenamed 'Sun Valley'"

    - Microsoft wants to 'reinvigorate' the Windows 10 user interface next year.

    - I'm told that Microsoft is planning to update many top-level user interfaces such as the Start menu, Action Center, and even File Explorer, with consistent modern designs, better animations, and new features.

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    Let's hope the Windows 8 debacle is well remembered before this supposedly "reinvigorating" release.

    [ Edit - I see this was briefly mentioned by @cfe here - http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-10-20h2.830339/page-41#post-11054984 ]

    I really don't know what all the fuss is with re-skinned and slightly reorganised interfaces in Windows, I really don't need it.....it takes about 5mins to get used to a new change and makes almost zero difference most of the time, apart from the accompanying bugs and install time!

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    This. So much this. :(

    10X is concerning to me, but what is even more disturbing is the project head's announcement of the plan to "bring 10X features to 10" and have both "co-exist by side" for indefinite time.

    It's already an impossible task to maintain the provision of just one feature-bloated OS operating in a vacuum.

    Who can say (or even imagine) what couched phrases such as "reinvent windows 10" will result in.

    It's going to be an interesting ride, that's for sure.

    And the usual....

    Microsoft confirms certificate loss on Windows 10 upgrades
    borncity.com 2020-11-01

    [​IMG]Microsoft has now officially confirmed the certificate problem, which I already mentioned here in the blog, as of October 30, 2020 and has given details of when certificates will be lost during a Windows 10 function update.

    Edit. More of the same.

    Microsoft confirms Windows 10 issues with network, Start Menu tiles windowslatest.com - November 2, 2020

    Microsoft has confirmed two new bugs in Windows 10 and promised that it has already started working on a fix. As we recently reported, Windows 10 has got a nasty bug that's disrupting the internet of some folks when users launch Microsoft Store apps or enable VPN connection, which is obviously annoying.

    In addition, Microsoft has finally acknowledged an annoying issue that could result in Start Menu with broken tiles. When this happens, you will notice that tiles are greyed out with an “app update in progress” progress bar.

    There you have it:D

    Maybe they are using "reinvigorate" to describe the anger and rekindled hate that will be inspired by the next phase of Windows performance and usability degradation that is deployed. They truly excel at failure.

    I don't need support for Windows 7 (and didn't when it was still supported) so I doubt that will matter for me with LTSC when it reaches the end. As long as it keeps working, that's all that matters. Their "support" causes more problems than it fixes. Better off without it as far as I'm concerned.

    Just updated from 1909 to 2004. So far so good. No idea what changed between versions but all went without issues

    I agree with you on the value of their support, but doesn't the LTSC branch get much longer support?
    IIRC the old LTSB (1607) was supported way longer than the consumer versions
