Some of you may have linked us to user reports complaining about bugs and problems in the latest version of Windows 10, but it appears Windows 10 version 1803 is experiencing the fastest rollout of any Windows 10 feature update so far.

Just a month since its rollout, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is already being used on over half of all the Windows 10 machines. In comparison, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update reached to 50 percent adoption rate in two months, which was then the fastest growth rate of a Windows 10 version. Windows 10 Creators Update had taken three months according to stats shared by AdDuplex.

Windows 10 Creators Update and the FCU helped gain confidence in Windows updates

The last two Windows 10 feature updates were comparatively free of major bugs or problems resulting in more confidence in Windows updates. However, the latest update has actually seen multiple reports of problems, including some official explanations of bugs. Microsoft had to pull back Windows 10 April 2018 Update for Intel and Toshiba SSDs and then the latest version was also blocked on machines running Avast antivirus.

Overall, the Update appears to be free of any major bugs to have been adopted at such a speed. Microsoft’s decision to block it temporarily on certain machines, however, may affect the adoption rate of upcoming Windows 10 feature updates.

Windows 10 April 2018 Update was officially expected to be released to the public on April 10 but its rollout was pushed to the end of April. Following a phased rollout strategy, Microsoft is yet to offer it to all the compatible Windows 10 machines.
