  1. Meanwhile in real world… images for 1809 offered by Microsoft are version 17763.107, October 2018 which are the bugged, “I delete your data and kill your network” versions.

    Who’s gonna bite the bullet and “upgrade”?

  2. Second sentence: “It looks like the company has fixed all critical issues with version 1908.”
    You certainly mean version 1809 …..
