    Is due to be released starting Monday the 30th though most will probably not receive it right away. This one is supposed to be huge so God knows just what (and how much) it will fuck up. Some are saying everyone using Win 10 should back up all their personal files, etc as well as update all your hardware drivers plus create an image of your Windows partition just in case..........
    Basically don't trust Windows Restore with this one.

    I'm part of the 'developer' network for Windows. I knew this was coming and I just installed a huge updated on this system.

    So far, nothing terrible has happened and everything seems to be working. I went through and opened all My applications just to be sure. I thought for sure that My Adobe stuff would crash, but it runs just fine. The same with My Visual Studio, Maya, 3dsMAX, and Fusion. I ran My Unity studio and it updated just fine. Even My desktop Lynda.com app works well.

    We'll see if Monday brings any change.

    So you're part of the developer network eh? Good, tell Microsux that most users want an Enterprise version of 10 without Cortana or all the Microsux crapware.

    Same crap was floated about the fall creators update.

    Just more Anti-MS hype and fear mongering.

    If you say so..........
    I used to like Microsoft until they came out with Win 8, I was hoping they would get it right with Win 10 but they simply doubled down on stupidity so the only Microsoft product I still use is Windows 7.

    Windows 8 was a disaster. So was ME and to a large extent Windows 95.

    Windows 10 is the most stable version I have yet seen. Faster on the same hardware than Ubuntu - I duel boot this machine - and frankly, rock solid.

    You're missing the point, I (and hundreds of thousands like me) want NO Cortana and NO added Microsoft crapware. That doesn't mean turning it off (while it still runs and hogs resources in the background) it means NO, we want an operating system not a spyware/adware configuration disguised as an operating system.
    My Win 7 boots faster than my Kubunu but the Kubuntu machine is half as powerful as my Windows 7 gamer but that's not the point, I'll wait the extra couple of seconds to use an OS that I control.
