Windows 10 someday, maybe update

The Windows 10 October Update, now to be referred to as The New ME, has now decided it dislikes the audio portion of a display driver from a tiny little company with little to no market share, known as Intel.  Microsoft have pulled the update, which is degrading audio input on systems with Intel graphics, which they blame on "OEMs that accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows" according to The Inquirer.

In this case, one might be thankful for not checking for updates for Windows or Office for a while and eating turkey instead.

"Intel driver users join anyone with a small hard drive, anyone who uses ZIP files, anyone using iCloud, anyone who needs to map a network drive, anyone with an HP machine, and anyone who likes their files to be associated with installed programs."

And another year comes to a close with that rolling trainwreck known as Windows 10. That's several years of borking with more to come in 2019 and closer to windows 7's EOL.

Is it any wonder that M$ has given its enterprise volume licensing customers the option of extending their window 7 security patch support for another 3 years until 2023. So that's windows 7 security patches until 2023 for a price! And Windows 8/8.1 is not much different from window 7 under the hood, save that God Awful TIFKAM UI. So it's not hard for M$ to sell extended windows 7 support to some volume licensing clients as M$ still has to support windows 8.1 until 2023.

A few years back the Lords of Redmond decided that getting rid of most of their in house QC/QA folks was a good way to increase the balance sheet profits at the cost of any stability from their OS products since. And now M$'s QA/QC dapartment is its consumer OS customers who have had drivers borked, files wacked, and many many other not so fun things done as the result of Windows 10's Undate forcing and crapware foisting. M$ does not have consumer OS customers anymore as they have all become BETA testers in the name of M$'s quarterly balance sheets.

The enterprise and those customers with the volume licensing have all the options and they pay for it in higher pricing. The consumer customers are just sacrificial lemmings runnimng over that Cliff with each and every Windows 10 Eternal OS BETA edition release. It should have already gotten old by now but consumers appear to be gluttons for punishment. And it's not like consumers have any OS choice in the current OS market place on non Apple PCs and Laptops!

Will there be planty of folks saying enough is enough and doing what is needed to stop this cycle of consumer abuse or will it just be same nonsense different year come 2019!

I wonder if I see a similar issue with Nvidia audio drivers.
(176400 Hz and 192000 Hz appearing, along with bad quality.) Though I'm an Insider.

But I'm curious why choosing an audio device on the taskbar doesn't change the Default Communication Device as seen in the old UI.

Second first, just choose sounds and then you get the old UI.

As to the first ... was that supported before and did it change with a Windows update or an NVIDIA one?

W10 is a disaster.

Micro$oft should really release a "Windows Classic" OS without all the BS win10 has. (so something like win7 but with better speed like win10 + win9x\xp themes)
