    I made an iso today from the downloaded install.esd and have since burned (?) to a USB 3.0 drive.
    It works ok and have used it twice on new disks with NO problem at all. :)

    I think Microsoft is not only testing new features of Windows UI but also testing a new distribution method for upgrades.
    I believe they are as well. I was made to understand that only the original release version on media was going to be the original RTM or release version of Windows 10. Then, down the road, you would get to v10.5 through five update downloads. Perhaps v10.10 might be released a year later on CD (no different than XP SP3 on CD, or Win7 SP1), but then you would revert back to upgrades over the Internet.

    I really don't think there will be a "next" conventional release of Windows.

    I tell you though, for people who don't care about "Apps" there is way too much install and config.
    If you perform a clean install don't choose 'Express Settings', don't create a Microsoft Account (yet), and turn off ALL Microsoft "Favors".
    You and Kari are both right. It was my mistake. I thought sure I checked the 9841 settings before I started the clean install with the ISO. But I got it wrong. I set OS to Windows and Windows 8 and everything went on in an hour. As you say I turned off even driver auto updates and made a local account to log in.

    Now to install some tray programs to see if they show up in the system tray any faster than 9841. :)

    How often is MS going to be releasing Windows 10 "updates" in such a dramatic fashion? In less than a month in a year long preview we have an update that has been released as a full .iso. We might have a bunch of these "update .iso" by the time Win 10 officially releases.

    Very often, as they fix and break things. There is a daily build so this could be a very frequent upgrade deal. Having worked on testing software in the past the developers will release something and that breaks something else which then gets fixed and so on and so forth. So you can either ignore some of the releases if are of no interest or join in with "the fun".
    We?re rolling out our first new build to the Windows Insider Program
