On Friday, Microsoft announced the launch of Windows 10 Build 15019, the latest version of Windows. Focused mainly on gaming, Build 15019 was designed to improve gaming performance and to take live streaming to a whole new level. Instead, it would seem that we are stuck with a Window 10 version so buggy, that even Microsoft declared that we should probably wait for the next release.
If you’ve been an avid fan of Microsoft’s operating systems, then you can probably remember Windows Vista, an OS so buggy that even opening an app like Paint could have returned the Blue Screen of Death.
The new Windows 10 Build 15019 has all the chances of becoming the next Windows Vista, bug-wise. So, the first thing that drew our attention was the downloading process. Although we left the computer unattended for about half an hour, the progress bar was still stuck at 0 percent.
After briefly consulting Microsoft’s help page, we found out, much to our surprise, that the progression bar does have a tendency to get stuck at 0 percent, and that we should probably ignore it because the installation process is still working.
Moving on to other issues, it would seem that Build 15019 has a couple of audio drivers related problems. Sometimes, the audio drivers would stop working out of the blue. The same help forum states that the best thing to do in this situation, it to manually restart the audio drivers and pray that it doesn’t happen again.
There are also a couple a couple of disk usage bugs, which make the resource meter indicate that some apps might be using more logical resources than necessary. Also, you won’t be able to download and use new Microsoft Edge extensions. And, to top it all up, more than often, the browser will become unresponsive.
It would also seem that Build 15019 also has some appearance-related issues like the Action Center becoming transparent or not being able to drag and drop items from the all applications list to the start menu.
When it comes to games, it would seem that Build 15019 is as disastrous as Vista – black screens, frequent crashes, games’ windows minimizing out of the blue and closing. Even the famous Beam broadcasting feature has its share of bugs – to use it, the player must change quite a lot of privacy settings.
In addition, it would seem that the user might experience a couple of green artifacts when using a specific configuration. So, what can you do to fix these bugs? Wait until April, of course, for the Creator Update.
