Software giant Microsoft finally stopped forcing twice (2) a year big featured update.
Microsoft featured update ver 1809 (Released in early October 2018) caused much of chaos where many of Avast and AVG antivirus software users lost their personal files after the update. Microsoft took ver 1809 out of public distribution system and took about a month to re-relase the update.
Now, Microsoft decided not to enforce this twice a year featured update but Windows 10 users still have to go through one featured update less than 18 month before installed version of Windows 10 come to end of its lifecycle.
Featured image of this blog post is a snapshot for one of my PCs in my network. It had Windows 10 ver 1803 (released in April 2018) and this message popped up on 10th of August, 2019. So it means, you are still forced to take up featured update less than 18 months, at least. (Although, lifecycle of each version of Windows 10 is set 18 month, Microsoft is pushing one featured update less than 18 months)
