It installed ok but downgraded my GPU driver to an older version and reset the switch to not download drivers automatically. So for anyone who prefers to update drivers manually, double check your driver versions and change the auto update switch back to no.
Ya it took my crimson from 17.9.3 to 17.1.1 just had installed 17.10.1 after updating windows and all is well again

Not much has changed. I do like the new Windows Defender. It's quite an improvement.
It still spies on you, like other parts of the OS. Still going to remove it completely along with Edge, Cortana and anything else undesirable.

Installed 1709 last night. So far only have 2.5 issues:
1) Initially my wifi adapter stopped connecting properly (e.g. it shows as connected, but no IP address or any connection info in ipconfig). Come to find out my network bridge was causing it, so I had to remove the link between WiFi and Ethernet adapter.
2) Chrome hangs every once in awhile. Had to restart my browser at least 5 times today. Not sure what's causing it, because nothing changed on my PC besides Creators Update...
2.5) Bluetooth icon is toxic-blue. I liked the old darker icon, which did not burn my retinas.

My secondary monitor is suspiciously dark now, even if the hardware brightness and contrast haven't changed. Oh well, I suspect it could have been worse after updating so soon after release.

It may sound useless, but I guess the idea is to be able to stream co-op games from all players simultaneously. Kind of like split-screen, but for spectators.
Not sure if it'll pick up, though, cause co-op element in most games seems to be rather short lived, like in Borderlands or Division.
Plus it might give you headaches or worse - it'll make you cross-eyed :fear:

My secondary monitor is suspiciously dark now, even if the hardware brightness and contrast haven't changed.
Got that too on my secondary display, and my headphones are for some reason a lot quieter than they used to be. Already tweaked all sound settings to the exact same ones I had, and still the difference is too noticeable.
Before I used to listen everything at 20-22%, while 30 was the ear-blasting volume. Now 30 is my new normal, and for loud music I have to bump it all the way to 40+%

The weird thing is that it looks ok for a bit (less than second) on startup and then it goes darker. It's applying some settings, but Idk which one, because the same icc profile is still applied if I go into settings.

I don't even understand the Streaming trend in general, so what do I know? There's probably been a request for this.

I don't stream either, but there are those that make a living from it. Just another feature where we're not the target audience, I guess. I just wish it was installable on demand.

Yeah, all the extraneous crap MS puts in their OS is my main complaint. I mentioned it either here earlier or somewhere when I complained about social features too. I just want an "OS".

edit: Kind of the same deal why people didn't quite warm up to X1 when it first came out. MS has a proclivity to be some lame "lifestyle" company or some shit. Just make a game console. Just make a computer OS.

It spies on you as much as any other antivirus using cloud systems.
Not the way Microsoft does. And with most AV packages, you can turn the cloud "features" off or block them with a firewall setting.
