    Is that 18917? It wasn't there at 05:45 and I've been out since 09:30. Downloading it now.
    Some interesting stuff - new version of the Windows subsystem for Linux, downloading is more sophisticated, Ink workspace changes, etc. Plus the usual bug fixes.

    Wasn't there this morning when I checked before heading out to town but is now, downloading and installing. On the 2nd PC wasn't there at all, Hmmmmmm Checked and somehow it had changed over to slow ring (whats the fun in that) Changed back to fast and that's coming down at a good speed.

    I finally got impatient and used the upgrade assistant to get 1903 on the "production" machine. It was a bit nail-biting. I set it going and then went out. When I came back the screen was blank and the system appeared frozen - no response to any stimulus. I eventually pressed reset and it rebooted and went into stage 2. That got stuck at 27%. After a couple of hours with some trepidation I rebooted again and the upgrade got reversed. Ever optimistic (foolish??) I tried again and this time it all went through. The second stage took a long time, but it didn't actually stop.

    MS have changed the way it delivers the Latest build (1903) it now usually comes up with a link saying 1903 is available and do you want to download /Install.

    As of yet they are not forcing it out, so if a person doesn't manually go into windows updates they wont see it. The other standard updates still come out as previously.

    Had to find a picture on Google but this is the message /options:

    I hadn't seen that at all despite manually checking for updates, which is why I went the upgrade assistant route.
    After I'd posted my min-rant I actually thought MS deserved some kudos for (a) trying to continue the update after a hard reset and then (b) gracefully recovering when I gave up at 27%. Granted it would have been better if it had all gone through first time, but at least I wasn't left with a total shambles to recover from myself, which might have been the case a couple of versions ago.
