just a short article I decided to write;
2 days ago I updated my Windows 10 from 1809 to 1903, update was "successful" (all programs, settings, drivers etc.. deleted despite I explicitly wanted to keep them), within 30 minutes after using the "fresh" OS, suddenly a BSOD, and since then SSD was visible only in BIOS - yea you hear right, Windows 10 bricked my 500GB Samsung 860 EVO - after a day of tinkering in another computer with Win7, Hiren Boot CD, MacOS etc.., I figured out drive got truly bricked, so I took it for warranty service (drive is roughly year old, with default 5-year warranty, there's plenty to cover);
so I decided to test out Windows 10 1903 (OS build 18362.30) in virtual environment to prevent another death of another drive....
and the results are truly disturbing, even for my pessimistic mindset,
fresh system without anything running, without installing any additional drivers, without touching any group policy settings, just connected to internet it's doing some shady Microsoft's background tasks on its own....
DPC Latency is CRAZY HIGH!
which basically means such system is totally unusable for any latency critical tasks - such as recording music, videos etc.. which is what I primarily use my PC for;
apparently I can just boot back to my MacOS hackintosh for trouble-free flawless experience, and only attempt to install back Windows 10 IF my SSD returns from warranty service, and use it purely for games...
