Well folks, it's been released. I downloaded the 64 bit Win 10 ISO from Microsoft earlier today, just installed it on this system and it's 1903.
I hope the fun and games don't start, but it appears to be stable. I am on a Dell desktop right now and reloaded the Dell Win 10 drivers that replaced the Microsoft-supplied drivers (Chipset and Intel HD video). i hung on to Win 7 with this system, all others I use have Win 10 1809. It's fast and I installed the big 3 browsers with no problems.
I'd say go ahead and do it if you are so inclined. I have no benchmark with Win 10 on this system but it seems as fast or faster than with Win 7 (well it is a fresh install, check back in 30 days :)).
Just thought you might be interested since this must be an official release and I haven't heard anything about it yet.

Well I knew it. 1903 completely hoses .NET framework, all versions. I am trying to get to the bottom of this, but it seems to be a common problem. Good ol' Microsoft releasing a version that had this known common problem reported by the insiders since April. I have had to go to pretty extreme measures to try and get .NET functional. I'll update my progress.

UPDATE:
Using the DISM function has seemed to fix things.
Type "cmd" into the search box
Run as administrator
Carefully copy and paste this ENTIRE script after the > in the CMD box you have opened.

DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /All /NoRestart /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-NetFx3-OC-Package /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-NetFx4-US-OC-Package /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-EmbeddedExp-Package /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-NetFx3-WCF-OC-Package /FeatureName:Microsoft-Windows-NetFx4-WCF-US-OC-Package

Hit return and wait a short bit. Things should be OK now.

If you don't mind messing around with Windows, go ahead and try. No warranty expressed or implied. Back your stuff up you may lose it otherwise. This isn't child's play.
I suspect there will be a fix coming next week. (The US holiday prevents update Tuesday this week)
Otherwise just reinstall trusty old v. 1809 or do a rollback if you updated and wait until MS sorts this problem out in v.1903.
