Even though the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is due to roll-out in little over a month (on 17 October), Microsoft still hasn't finished rolling out its first Creators Update - which was released in April, more than four months ago.
According to AdDuplex, the first Creators Update (the second Windows-as-a-Service update) is rolling out so slowly that some people could end up getting the second (third) before the first (second).
It comes down to a glitch early in the rollout where it was discovered that for the first time since the much-loved Windows Vista, there were major compatibility problems with drivers.
It wasn't so much that they had to be rewritten, but updated first, and it has slowed everything far more than the Anniversary Update, which happened with relative haste.
In July, just 50.1 per cent of devices capable of running the Creators Update had received the Update and upgraded accordingly. That figure has jumped a bit with the August figure standing at 65.6 per cent but, let's face it, that still leaves more than one-third left to update in the next month.
However, AdDuplex added that just 18 per cent of Surface Pro 3 users had the latest version last time they checked in July, but that figure has jumped to 60 per cent now.
The sudden leap in Surface Pro 3 users downloading and installing the last Creators Update suggests that Microsoft is, slowly, getting round to rolling the update out to more and more devices, particularly niche devices.
Microsoft had always made it clear that it intended to roll out such updates in stages to ensure that everything goes smoothly, but it now seems to have gone so far the other way that the smooth roll-out feels like a jerky cock-up.
