I'm aware all is good now, just an idea for the future

What OS do you use?
Currently, Mint 18.1 KDE
I use a Mac laptop and Windows 10 desktop. I tried mint on Virtualbox but wasn't willing to move away from Ubuntu as my Linux distro. Why did you choose mint?
I prefer KDE. Really dislike Unity, which is why I moved from Ubuntu to Mint. Mate is ok but KDE gives me the environment I like. Plasma 5, while not fully mature yet is pretty handy.
I use Windows at work (all kinds) as well as Mac but Linux gives me far more choice and capability. Only keep Windows at home because I've got too much invested in iTunes....having once had an iPhone. Other than that, I haven't needed Windows in years...not since XP
Have spent most of the morning attempting to install the Windows 10 Creators Update, consistently running into a brick wall at 32%. Others are reporting repeated failure at this point. Microsoft - use your telemetry data and fix it.
Be patient. Wait a week. You know how this works, let others download it first, have MS fix all the first teething issues, and then make a move yourself.
Too late. Tried MS support, they tweaked, they twiddled, they downloaded and installed fixes and then tried the update again. Result = broken OS and vanished restore points -> rebuild, on a machine that was rock solid stable for six months.
I now understand why some people set Windows Update to 'defer'. I hadn't personally experienced problems with W10 updates, except for a common HP printer driver issue and overwritten settings/preferences. However I woke this morning to a large blue pop-up informing me that Creators Update was ready to install. Knew it was coming and thought, let's get it out of the way.
If I bump into anyone claiming to work for Microsoft in the next week, they're in strife. I'll sleep on whether to have another go at Windows 10 or go back to Windows 7, a good OS (eventually).
Be very wary installing this thing if you're happy with your system as is. The 32% problem appears to affect W10 Pro users rather than Home.
Mine updated smoothly. I'm liking the Night light setting where you filter a lot of the blue light that keeps the brain active.
had it just over a year on a new pc. straight away got rid of cortana, edge. would like to completely get rid of the sign in screen on startup but apart from that, the only real issues i tend to have is compatability (often 3rd party things, sorting out fixes for games that liked to use games for windows live).
Google is a wonderful thing
what you're linking to is automatic sign in, which i already had, but thankyou for jogging my memory to do something about it. i've had to do some registry editing to skip past the sign-in screen. would prefer not to see any windows stuff before i hit the desktop, so will still need some tweaking.
Been having problems for the last week, coincidentally just after a Windows update. Very slow, even stopped for 24 hours. Lost ipv4 and 6 connectivity. Have ipv4 back but still no 6. Still very slow and basic access. ie takes me back to 33mbs days when photos take a minute to load and youtube fuggedaboudit.
Am interested in how to ship off Cortana. But also are my issues down to the new updates or??
There is an option in group policy to turn of Cortana. It was the very first thing I did after upgrading from windows 7.
