Microsoft is being very careful with the roll-out of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, using AI to make sure to only push it to confirmed-good configurations.

As an end user, it can, however, be frustrating to be told your PC is up to date when you know there is a big OS update available.

WindowsLatest reports that Microsoft will now inform users who are checking for updates if their PC is incompatible.  The message reads:

Feature update to Windows 10,
version 1903

The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready. you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.

The message is similar to the one delivered with the Update Assistant tool, and could likely be improved only by telling users why their PC could not be updated, especially when something as simple as unplugging a USB thumb drive could solve the problem.

What do our readers think of this development? Let us know below.
