especially when its not supported by BM yet, as he's stated multiple times in this thread.

BM was the one that sent that "test version" to NoelC, so that version it is supported by BM.

Hey, my hat is custom machined titanium with gold leaf!  :)  Hey, if they don't have any of my data, they can't abuse it. 

I logged what sites the  v1703 Creator's Update system tried to contact just after updating my fully private v1607 Anniversary setup and choosing the most private settings in the "privacy configuration" provided by Microsoft...   Some of these are legitimate security certificate servers, but the rest...  You decide whether all these comms are necessary or wanted.

Ya think?  But he's still a good guy.

Thanks dhjohns.  We butt heads from time to time, but I think the same of you.

Hey whatever the OS wants to contact is OK.  I keep the viruses out, but I want my OS to operate as intended.  I do realize that some people do not like communication, but I am fine with it.  All is good.  I am running build 16184 with Aeroglass 1.4.6.  No transparency, but my 3rd party themes are right.  No message boxes at startup from aeroglass stating incompatibility.  No water marks.  I do not expect any build I am using to have any transparency on the borders again since BM does not support Insider Previews, but I am alright with that.  Just so long as there are no errors or anything.  Aeroglass is a royal pain anyway.  The colors seem to change when I switch themes, and since I like the borders of windows in the foreground to be the same color as the ones in the background, it can be a real headache.  But, like I said, I have a very nice setup with the newest Insider Preview.  I think it works much better than the Creators Update.  My themes work very well, and all is good.
