  • Microsoft Windows 10 Update deletes your files! Who needs ransomware?

This is yet another example of the effects of poor testing/QA, and a warning of inevitable future disasters. Video includes rant regarding Insider's builds, and what I think about using them on production systems as so many people do these days.
