Re: Full speed
Software quality has a cost and necessarily for the subject of windows, the hardware and software configurations must be very different. In many companies, especially the one of the OS editor, between the tests carried out on the internet and by beta testers, as a client we could hope that the first versions would be more stable.

Re: Full speed
I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're right. It feels as though nobody is paying attention to update results.

Re: Full speed
It's almost like Microsoft has outsourced its update operations to Homer J. Simpson LLC. No matter how smart tech companies think they are, they are prone to fall into the same efficiency traps as legacy businesses.

Re: Full speed
I think you may be right. Time spent troubleshooting problems after an update is on the uptick. Not every update is trouble, but the ones that are take up far too much time for users. It's a sad state of affairs, really.

Re: Full speed
Microsoft gave up worrying about the effects of their dreaded updates on users long ago.

Re: Full speed
I've had problems with Windows 8 and 10 this month. It really seems like the latest round of updates weren't tested before release. To be fair, I have had problems with Windows 10 updates for the last 2-3 months...

Re: Full speed
This would seem to be a solution to the canary method that will " test for problems, and then deploy to a larger number if no problems are found. If problems are found, then roll back, adjust and iterate." and Google/Netflix may very well have come up with a way to speed that up on a larger scale. I've experienced big problems with Windows 10 updates this month, that would seem to beg for their solution. Bears watching to see how effective it becomes.

Re: Full speed
No linear relation but same philosophy - incremental changing and testing.

Full speed
This is an exciting release. Breaking things at scale is generally discouraged so this is a great solution. Does this have any relation to Netflix's Chaos Monkey? Is it a later iteration or built upon the same rules?
