New Windows 10 VERSION (Yikes!)

 

A new Windows 10 VERSION showed up last night on my computer ready for me to install. So I did. From the brief description I didn't appreciate that it was a new version I was installing, so I started it at 1 a.m. It finally finished at 2:15 a.m., 75 minutes later. And I have an SSD, which means that baby did some serious installing.
Here are the details:

Announcement: Feature Update to Windows 10 Version 2004

From the ABOUT section:

mucking about in the registry

I have modified the registry when necessary, but why muck about in the registry when Windows Update will simply overwrite my changes in the future?

Also, Microsoft's point about delaying feature upgrades for too long is well taken. How can they write security updates for PCs that range from fully upgraded to never upgraded?
