It's not happy.....

I downloaded the update, which went very quick. Asked me to reboot, which took quite a while, a good two minutes. System came up fine, but windows update now stuck, doesn't show update complete.

5775C on Z97, NVME.



Additionally, the shutdown/restart button always shows update option, and it doesn't update anything when I choose those.

I just installed it on a test laptop. It booted to the login screen then on login machine shutdown. This happened about 3 times and on the 4th boot up everything is now working. I have this laptop just for stuff like this so I will hold off on updating my primary desktop until I do more testing.

Run the update troubleshooter, maybe you'll get lucky.
 
If you have older systems, I'd especially say wait since usually Microsoft tests older hardware last and not first. If you have the latest hardware like Zen2/3 CPU or 10th-11th gen Intel Core CPUs, you should be okay. For the most part.

Another good practice is to make sure your GPU drives are on the latest update, this is generally important since Intel, AMD and Nvidia do make some tweaks to improve integration with the latest Windows 10 builds.

I installed 21H1 on my Ryzen 5 3600 rig, and its butter smooth. No bugs whatsoever, the only bug I had was a small issue where the start menu wouldn't pop up, but it rectified itself pretty quickly, plus I restarted to make sure everything was fine, and yup that's the only bug I've gotten.

I did get that issue too where windows update said to reboot to update, just igore it, if you leave the system as be, it'll fix itself. I've always had small bugs like this on major windows 10 updates and it won't interfere at all with your system usage.

With this update,I've noticed animation and speed improvements with Windows in general, even scrolling is smoother and I'm not getting weird hiccups with the settings app or the search bar anymore.

While this new May update does have a lot of bugs and improvements,
This may be what you mean, but I daresay it is not what you meant to write.
the removal of the legacy Microsoft Edge browser
At first I thought this was a mistake and you meant IE.
To avoid confusion I might add that CHROMIUM Edge is the current MS browser and is still included.
Anyone using the pre-Chromium version of Edge will have been nagged to upgrade for at least half a year.

I hope some of hackers are reading this.
Please, do not attack people or health systems, please show Microsoft how Windows users feel before and after Windows update.
If one is lucky for PC to be fully operational after update, why, for the sake why Microsoft do you revert some settings to default, eg Temp folder and how do you dare to uninstall my software without asking me!!!!????

Please, place Microsoft PC/servers into same basket we are in.

i updated to 21H1 earlier, its... i don't know what changed. version numbers?

Windows update works here, it wants me to restart for a .net update, it can wait.

what did it do to temp folder?

it went a little mad finding all my usb devices after restart but that didn't last long
