    I mean, really? What is so significant, that MS had to call it "something" update?? It is so minor, it could easily be launched as normal patch tuesday update. We got nicer "settings". Wow, really. They are just repairing the damage they've done from 8.1 to 10. For example: VPN connection.
    They did not deliver half of the promised features: 6 exciting features that got cut from the Windows 10 Creators Update | Windows Central

    Where are onedrive placeholders? That shouldn't even be a feature, that is common sense!

    And when I see windows capture 3D, most futuristic feature, it just makes me lol, it looks like MS made that video so everybody would get excited, and then they were hoping that everyone would just forget when they wouldn't deliver (as usual).

    And more, dynamic lock doesn't even work, at least for me. And I'm using SP4 and lumia 950XL. Most MS setup as possible. I feel like I'm constantly getting BETA SW from MS, but I am not even rolled in developers preview!

    And if I go deeper, DPI scalling problem on different screens is still present, I have to restart my SP4 if I don't want to have blurry fonts in MS office after I disconnect it from the dock (external 1080p screen). Yes, MS's own MS office still has DPI scalling problems on MS's own devices. How f***** up is that?!

    The Creator Update is definitely a minor update, but by no means is it equal to a typical security update or cumulative patch. Seriously, have you not noticed the pattern?
    Threshold 1: First public release of Windows 10. DEFINITELY major.
    Threshold 2: Minor update to Threshold 1, focused on refining the experience.
    Redstone 1: Major update to Windows 10, added loads of features.
    Redstone 2: Minor update focused on refining the last major update. Which it DID.
    Redstone 3: Major update? Probably.

    Yes, RS2 is minor, but it DOES add some nice features and improvements, and it most certainly runs better than any other version of Windows 10 out there. I too lament the loss of some much looked for features in Windows 10, but they're not here because they're not ready yet. We'll just have to wait for RS3. The only reason the Creator Update is getting so much flak is because we have the privilege of knowing what Microsoft is striving for so we have to face the disappointment when not everything makes the cut. You think Google or Apple achieve all of their plans with every major software release? We just don't hear about the plans, so to us every improvement is new and exciting.

    I don't really care about how google or apple are doing things, but since you mentioned: when apple demoes a feature, it is ready and when you get the update, it works like demoed (judged on my iPad experience). And when MS demoes and promises features, they either do not deliver or they deliver some half-baked BETA something.

    Apple isn't in the habit of demoing a feature before it's been developed, because Apple doesn't show off major updates until it's near completion. Microsoft is in a unique position because they have millions of people watching each update being developed. It means Microsoft gains a huge amount of feedback that they can use to make sure they do it right, but it also means nasty backlash when people don't get what they expected. Apple and Google do the EXACT same thing as Microsoft but we just never see it.
