Re: High Sierra bug


[re: TinyMongomery] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by TinyMongomery:
The current build number is 15063.729.
Thanks, that's even more cryptic than my MacOS build number tongue

I've been doing a bit of googling and came across this:
Windows 10 Will Be the Last Major Microsoft OS Release
I hadn't realised MS were going down that route... so (probably) no Windows 11 and (it wouldn't surprise me) no MacOS 11 either.

Just a series of point releases... should be a good thing. More "evolutionary" and less apps being broken by major OS updates if nothing else!

It's primarily because MS will move to a subscription/cloud service - so you won't see update numbers but it will keep changing. Even if they no longer have major versions they could still have major changes.

Can't really comment on Apple's releases but, generally, I disagree!!

A major release can be annoying but, when it occurs, you can go through it all & make sure that your Options/Settings are as you wish them to be. Also, if anything outlandish is introduced, there becomes such an outcry that it is soon shelved!

With this "Drip-Feed" approach to updates, various Options/Settings can be subtly changed (or even over-written) without you being aware of them!! Also you no longer get the same level of outcries objecting to outlandish changes!

Didn't I read something, on another Forum, where it was asserted that Microsoft routinely checks if Remote-Telemetry has been disabled &, if it has, it then re-enables it via the "routine" Security Updates??

In reply to a post by TinyMongomery:
Windows is on sub-version 1703 (or 1709 for cutting-edge users).
- Are those "genuine" sub-versions or build numbers?


The Microsoft version numbers are when the major releases are produced: March 2017 (1703) / Sep 2017 (1709)

Next years are likely to be 1803 and 1809
