Windows Desktop: 16179

For Windows Insiders that are on the fast build, gear up for another update – 16179 for PC.

Revert VM: Continuing our theme of simplifying Hyper-V for developers on Windows 10 (see What’s New), we’re introducing automatic checkpoints so that you’ll always be able to undo a mistake in your virtual machine – you can now always revert to the last time you started a virtual machine.

Introducing Power Throttling*: You may remember some of the power experiments we did back in January with Build 15002. Power Throttling was one of those experiments, and showed to have up to 11% savings in CPU power consumption for some of the most strenuous use cases. So, we’re turning this on for everyone starting with last week’s build. Check out our complete blog post on this for more details!

    ATTENTION IS ANY ONE ELSE GROWING TIRED OF THE TIME REQIRED AT THESE BUILDS AND LOOSING VALUABLE CONSTRUCTIVE NEEDED WORK TIME BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE ERRORS AND FAILED BUILDS. (TOTAL WIPE OUTS). Here is the deal. I have heard that 15063 has been scraped. Reverting back to previous build. I have now had 3 unsuccessful downloads of 15063 attempted by Microsoft. Resulting in a staggering number of PC crashes Closer to 15 + crashes. Thanks to 15063 failed attempts. All attempts at Microsoft updates ended at 67% updated then stalls out (FAILS). Please refrain from hyping any updates anymore. Very few have worked flawlessly. Say maybe, zero, one? You tell me my people. MICROSOFT. Since there are far to many errors to even begin to study them. Only if you have 16 hrs. a day of non stop research. For days on ends. HOW MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE FEEL THAT BEING AN INSIDER IS FAR MORE TIME CONSUMING FOR US AVERAGE 9 to 5 workers. If your 15063 installed flawlessly then good for u. If not then jump on my bandwagon. Seen Windows Insider Preview comments to them and let them know your frustration. IF SO TELL THEM CAL-BOY sent you. Sweet. P.S. I am serious never buy the hype Microsoft has been feeding us INSIDERS. Does that word not reek of HYPE. Seriously.
