Creators Update has plenty of real improvements. The Edge browser, Cortana personal assistant, and other built-in apps are better. Usability is improved. Pro and Enterprise users gain the ability to throttle back forced patching using a (more or less) readily accessible pane in Settings. Enterprises will like the improvements to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, which include the ability to isolate compromised machines, block suspicious behaviors, and provide secure access to work documents from personal mobile devices.
In short, Creators Update is an improvement over Anniversary Update. Who knows? It might even offer smoother sailing for eager adopters than its predecessor.
There is always a risk with updating an operating system but we feel that this time the benefits outweigh the risks. There is no need to search the update out as when your computer is ready it will prompt you to edit the settings and proceed with the install. If the workstation belongs to a business, I would recommend installing the update the last thing in the evening but otherwise this one is good to go!
