Yesterday, I decided to install Windows 10 2004; chiefly because I couldn’t put it off any longer. Both my machines were ready for it and it was being offered through Windows Update. My laptop, the machine I rely on the most, is an Acer Core i5 with 16 GBs of RAM. I started the process at 8:24 a.m. yesterday morning and my machine was ready to use at 12:41 yesterday afternoon. Over four hours was taken up by the installation of this feature update. Nothing went wrong, I didn’t have to look up anything on the internet; the process just took that long. To find out what was
new I had to go to thurrott.com and read Paul’s article, for the
improvements were not obvious. While, the new search feature is nice and it is also nice to be able to name virtual desktops, and there are improvements to the your phone application; which I cannot get to work on my Galaxy Note 9. I do not think that these
improvements were worth four hours of my time.
I put the time and the percentage of the process complete into a spreadsheet, which is below. In addition to the data, I also made charts.
