Developers weigh in on Microsoft's all-digital Build 2020 conference

Microsoft shifted to an all-digital format with relatively little notice, and many people commended the company for its successful format switch. In addition to being online, Build 2020 was more accessible as it was free. Usually, people have to pay over $2,000 to attend Build.

  • This is a huge showstopper for me. Instead of using a NAS box I use Storage Spaces with 4x 4TB WD Reds in an older Core2 Duo Quad PC as my server. If this update ruins my server storage I will be crushed. I have postponed Windows Updates for 1 month. Hopefully, they patch this issue ASAP!
    Luckily, I sync my OneDrive folder to a duplicated Storage Spaces drive & I also backup the entire PC to an OLD but still functioning HP MediaSmart server. Fingers crossed, these redundancies keep my files safe. Do better MSFT.
