Microsoft has finalized the next version of its desktop operating system, with the public release of Windows 10 1909 scheduled for November. Windows 10 November 2019 Update or version 1909 brings a renewed focus to performance improvements and stability and doesn't bring any major changes to the OS.

After the last few Windows 10 feature updates that brought with them an unending list of bugs and annoyances to the users, the Windows maker had promised to deliver the next update as a monthly cumulative update, in an attempt to not cause disruption during the installation process. While it is yet to be seen how much Microsoft has succeeded with the development and quality testing of version 1909, it does seem to be a step taken in the right direction.
