Microsoft, fix your update process!
I have grown to dread any updates from Microsoft,even minor ones. The last one came a day or so ago and changed my default browser from Firefox to Edge as well as some other changes to default programs.. I know how to change it back either from the Control Panel or the Action Center. The settings would not stay. I spent an hour searching the web for a solution and finally found a registry edit that so far seems to work. Microsoft needs to stop trying to be all things to all users. There always seems to be some sort of problem with their updates. I expect this Redstone update to be a real nightmare for the average user and even some tech savvy users and involve hours of wasted time straightening stuff out. Microsoft, fix your update process!

Windows 10 no longer "optional" update.
Of late, Microsoft is able to tout the number of Windows 10 users having skyrocketed as they changed the Windows 10 update from optional to "critical".   Anyone with windows update turned on for critical updates now get windows 10 by default.   This is a recent change causing much confusion and concern.

VR desktop
I'd like to see Microsoft offering something akin to Virtual Desktop - maybe even partnering with the developer - to offer VR integrated Windows 10. 

Someone needs to be the first and I'd rather Microsoft jumped in first than Apple did.
