All the issues of Windows 10 version 1803 you may run into

Win10 Version 1803 is the new "Spring 2018" update that is being pushed out right now. You may have already gotten it, or be about to get it.

Quick reminder: If you have Windows 10 Pro you can put off major updates (what we used to call service packs) for up to two years: https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-1 ... g-upgrade/

Don't ever feel you HAVE to do the version updates. As I said above, if you have Win 10 Pro you can defer them for a couple of years.

I've been holding my gaming PC at version 1607 (Nov 2016!) believe it or not, and yes it still gets security updates because 1607 is the still supported in the Long Term Servicing Branch for Businesses (technically even the 1507 RTM is still supported on the long term business branch, but that was a buggy release of Win10). I will keep that PC on 1607 until I have no choice.

I'm staying at version 1709 (previous version before this month's 1803) on my laptop and Surface Pro for at least the next 6 months until the bugs are sorted out. Nothing in the new release I feel is a must-have anyway. I always defer the laptops for 6 months to let everyone else be Guinea pigs first and work the bugs out.

Release version history and service branch chart (or channel as they now call it) if you're curious:
