The Windows 10 April Update is finally out and some folks are already comparing it to the Anniversary Update. And not for the reasons Microsoft expected prior to the release. Namely, there’s a myriad of jaw-dropping issues which are heavily downgrading the overall experience. And it’s only a couple of days since the April Update hit the general population.
One concerned user sparked the discussion on the official Microsoft’s community forum. It concerns Lenovo Thinkpad and substantial performance downgrade after the April Update took over. This is what he had to say, besides recommending to avoid the update for all Lenovo ThinkPad users.
“I’d like to let anyone know that it is not recommended to update to the latest version of windows 10. It’s causing system failures just the same way as the anniversary update. Microsoft is not learning from their mistakes. My thinkpad is freezing every few minutes and this is something that didn’t happen before updating.”
Furthermore, the concerned user also stated that his ThinkPad E480 worked exceptionally prior to the update and that it’s a brand new model. So, even if the freezing/BSOD issues are doubtfully common on the old configurations due to compatibility issues, this is a new model which is strictly optimized for Windows 10.
We can only hope that Microsoft provides some solutions for the affected users. Meanwhile, we recommend avoiding the over-the-air updates. Rather, we recommend using the Update Assistant. You can get it here. That way, the compatibility issues are to be avoided.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to share your experience with the April Update. Is everything running nice or this is another hastily appended major update?
