wow! I haven't been on my PC for almost a week now....work, work, and more work. Gotta pick up those extra shifts when I can...winter time hours have kicked in. Hours have been cut for everyone in the kitchen.

That said...I get on today and check my updates and behold...feature update 1809 is ready to install. Wow! It wiped out all my other OS updates, driver updates and so on. So was this like a new OS release?

Sorta-Kinda.
I think of them as upgrades myself but it's still "Windows 10" just another "Version" Number so...
It depends on how far you tilt your head and how hard you squint your eyes.
It's the 5th "Redstone" release.

I wish my HP Spectre would update. I want 1809 so I can see my phone messages.

[And, yes, I check manually every day]

You've been around here long enough to know that. 1809 is a new OS compared to 1803.

1809 stands for released 9/2018. 1803 was released March of 2018. The only problem with 1809 is it had some glitches in the software and Microsoft pulled it from releasing to every machine. They have fixed the bugs and rereleased this version in the windows update. Some machines get the release others have to wait. One reason some are still waiting has to do with an intel item. Not sure on the specifics. Anyway I have one with the original 1809. Another with the 1809 that I downloaded about 1 month ago. Another still is on 1803.

I re-downloaded the 1809 build from Media Builder around Christmas. I then installed for the first time. I have experienced numerous glitches with just about everything I have installed. Most of the glitches were software updates seemingly not related to the build.

However Build 1809 fresh install breaks my Realtek drivers and it will not setup the Realtek Sound Manager. I had to go find a fix online. Ironically it was Microsoft's fix that they haven't bothered putting in 1809, before they decided to release to release to public.
