The seemingly endless barrage of patches attempting to patch the issue the previous patches attempt to patch after needing a patch to patch the patch ... continues ad nauseam.  If you are running Server 2016 or Windows 10 1709 or newer then you are about to receive a gift you probably don't want; though one fix in Server 2016 is worth it as it fixes something that left many technically inclined people, including The Register, scratching their heads.

You should consider a setting a shortcut to "About your PC" to keep tabs on your Windows version as Win10 has made this necessary for the first time.  Case and point, Windows 10 1703 is no longer receiving updates unless you are running Enterprise or Education versions, so unless you install one of the roll ups, you ain't even getting basic security updates!

"Tucked innocuously among a swathe of fixes ranging from dealing with Russian time zone changes to fixing wobbly Hyper-V servers is the text: "Addresses an issue in File Explorer that sometimes deletes the permissions of a shared parent folder when you delete the shared child folder."

With Windows 10 it's BETA land so come on down and fix it again! Again and Again and Again some more because M$ showed its QA/QC teams the Door. It's Windows 10 and BETA land and 100% sure you'll need to fix it again!

Im being told Microsoft is attempting to disguise beta testing and QA as regularly scheduled "feature" updates, to cover up the downsizing of their own internal, and costly, beta/qa division...

Its a bold a strategy, Cotton. lets see if it pays off for em

Like I care about Winblows Updates.

Tried that twice on Disaster10. Finally said enough. My last patch is from May and never again. Sick and tired of returning system to working order after every update. Usually it took about 2 weeks to get every little detail back again.

I'm really sorry for folks who need to patch W10 systems regularly (servers, corporations and stuff). Probably in the top 5 worst jobs in the World right now.

Correction on above comments. M$ disbanded beta-testing division before launching W10. Lay-off were in thousands around the World. Now testing is done probably by corp gardeners or cooks. Certainly not qualified personel.
