There are a few hours left until Microsoft starts rolling out the December Patch Tuesday updates. As always, the big M will push many useful bug fixes and improvements to all Windows versions aiming to make the supported OS versions more stable and reliable.

The stakes are very high for Microsoft this month. It’s been two months since the company officially released the Windows 10 October 2018 Update but complaints related to various bugs and technical issues keep flooding the forums.

Windows 10 v1809 was a bumpy update for many

The Redmond giant acknowledged many of these issues and confirmed its software engineers are working to develop hotfixes that will hopefully get released this month.

As a quick reminder, some of the most common bug reports concern Blue Screen of Death issues, audio issues and install problems. Some of these bugs are so severe that Microsoft completely blocked the update on particular hardware configurations such as Nuvoton PCs, Surface Book devices and computers running Mophisec software.

Clearly, Microsoft has a long update changelog in store. But the question is: will Patch Tuesday finally fix all the Windows 10 October 2018 Update bugs reported by users? After all, the latest OS version seems to be the buggiest release since the Anniversary Update.

Will Patch Tuesday boost Windows v1809’s popularity?

There is also another question that we have: Will the December Patch Tuesday convince more users to install the latest Windows 10 version on their computers? Right now, only 3% of Windows 10 computers are running the Windows 10 version 1809 OS. After all, Microsoft promised to fix the bugs so this should be a safe bet, shouldn’t it?

Well, keep in mind that according to a recent survey, Windows updates cause issues for 50% of users. Sometimes, updates meant to fix various system bugs actually bring issues of their own.

As always, the safest approach is to wait for a few days before installing the updates.

So, what’s your take on this? Are you going to install the December Patch Tuesday updates as soon as they’re available? Are you planning to install the Windows 10 October 2018 Update before the year ends?

Let us know in the comments below.
