    Where exactly is the danger?

    That article is a crock of cr4p written by some idiot who had nothing to say - there are no facts, just rubbish

    "Be careful if you decide to get out of bed today, it could cause problems, or it could be totally fine"

    I don't run 10 on my main machine, I installed this update on my mini PC last night, no problems at all after a reboot

    Read the article, it's a load of cr4p, it doesn't even say why it might be dangerous, just pure stupidity (Even the comments agree)

    Just because the links arrived before it hit WU (Same with the last update)

    To reply politely, is something normal Humans and well-educated people would do, and they would be all times fair and giving others the chance to express their own view, and beside of that, they would never call others Idiot's! Who is doing such, must not wonder if they get called Idiot (or worse) too! That also applies for News Article as well as to any conservation held with other, in real or in Forums like MDL!

    Oh please! That's enough of these click-bait articles.

    Those who are really interested follow this thread; others please learn about 'staged rollout'.
