The JEDI Questioned: Windows 10 Updates and Value

September 21, 2020

Windows 10 Updates Are Pretty Much Useless” suggests that the JEDI outfit and inventor of two mobile phones held together with a hinge is hand waving. Who knew? The article asserts: “IT professionals claim Windows 10 updates rarely deliver value.” The sample on which these shocking conclusions are based contained 500 people. No, we don’t know how these folks were selected or if they were wearing Steve Jobs-style jeans and shirts.

We noted these items from the write up:

  • Of the 500 respondents, 20 percent said they think Windows 10 updates deliver at least some value.
  • 22 percent said the updates left them “indifferent.”
  • In 2018, a similar survey revealed nearly 70% of IT personnel were dismissive of the bi-annual feature updates at the time.

Is Microsoft Windows winning over the hearts and minds of the JEDI minions? Not much progress it seems. How excited can one get when an operating system is a utility function. Fiddling with an operating system appears to put speed bumps on the information highway.

What about bum updates? Not even a bold online information services dares to enter that digital swamp.
