Win10 2004 update.


[link to this post]
 
Anyone else allowed Windows to install Ver2004?

I did this morning and so far the only real problem I've had was that I lost audio output from my Soundblaster-Z. A full un/re-install of Creative drivers and apps has sorted that.

Last time I tried it was in June and I had to roll it back then, but it seems as if it's OK this time.

I have it installed, I installed it a few weeks back. It was really slow when i installed it, but I done a clean install and it is ok.
I did have a few problems a few days back with some BSoDs, but I think I sorted that out being something to do with memory setting in the bios.

Creative drivers used to be awful and I do not they have changed, i had the same problem with my Asus sound card, sorted that out now as well, just don't allow windows to install driver updates.

at the end of the day 2004 works, there is nothing in it that is of interest to me, but then that is Windows 10 for me, what ever they add to it, I do not use, i just want the OS and that is it. i would still be using Windows 7 or 8 if they would work on my machine

The next issue is known as "20H2". Microsoft have already indicated that it's ready to install on my system, but I'm reluctant to do so because it means the end of the "Control Panel".

For years, in many iterations, of the Windows operating system, it has been the one bit of useful software that Microsoft always provided.

They've taken a few more bits out of Control Panel haven't they? Put them into Settings?

Something I read in ISPreview I think a few days ago.

The old System page that showed the summary of processor, RAM and so on disappeared to somewhere in there a while ago.

Yes I noticed that but I think very little else has changed in CP. Jen Gentleman the GUI designer of Win 10 has been tweeting about getting rid of CP but met with some resistance.

I updated from 2004 to 20H2 a couple of weeks ago (very quick and painless) and I have yet to see anything that has changed/ Control Panel still there in all its glory.

It is going to be difficult to get rid of, some older hardware still use it for settings and even some software do.

There are also still some Windows stuff that needs the control panel, granted it is getting less.
