    Afaik 22000.194 was already confirmed to be what was shipping to OEM's as the final build.

    I wouldn't count on it - pretty sure the delay is due to the new taskbar and right click menu being a botch that sits "on top" of the existing menu functionality

    Yeah I just noticed that, the old context menu is still there and opens much quicker than the new one when you tap it. It's not something many would notice I think outside the realms of power users and people who notice those little things lol. I suppose it is what it is. I read just now that MS have locked down the new context menu and no third party apps can put stuff there to clutter it up, I bet that has something to do with it as well.

    I'll have a play with the various taskbar mods at some point I guess, just need something that is productive going forwards.

    Is there a way to make right click on the task bar to behave as it did in Windows 10? I quite often bring up Task Manager and it's annoying to have to aim for a small Windows icon on a 34" Ultrawide monitor.

    That was quick. USB drive created for a fresh install. Been running the insider preview with no issuesb ut always prefer a clean install for a new OS.
    Done.. new install and all working ok so far, I'll finish with it tomorrow now but smooth sailing so far.
    I'm sure the Microsoft servers will be getting hammered in a few hours time, luckily for us it was an early release

    Just running through the in-place upgrade over the github mct version and this time I see no warning that my CPU is not supported. Interesting...
