it's not remotely close to fact. it's complete bullshit.

you don't run win10 so you're not in a position to comment.

win10 is actually very stable, much more than your beloved windows xp.

nothing is perfect and there will *always* be bugs, no matter what the
software is.

then it's a good thing that's what happens.

microsoft deploys updates in a staggered fashion, first with insiders
who volunteer to test upcoming builds, then when it's stable, it's
released a subset of users known to have compatible hardware, and over
time, larger and larger groups of users so that any bumps along the way
can be quickly resolved before affecting users..

what they don't do is push untested updates to everyone.

it's clear where one problem is coming from.
