Although the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, version 1903, had its number of issues, it’s actually not as buggy as previous versions, which makes it perhaps one of the smoother releases in a long time. In part, it’s because of the new update controls that Microsoft is putting in place to deploy the feature update and block devices that may not be fully compatible.
