Windows 10: First one with windows 10 anniversary update
Nothing here yet -- "Your device is up to date : Last checked today 09:56."
Sunday 31 Aug.
Is it only at the moment on Insider.
edit : just read --should be availble to Joe Public on Aug 2nd (Tuesday).
If Ms has bandwith problems why not use LEGAL Torrent system for downloads --loads of Legitimate Linux distros are distributed this way - including for example Linux Mint and OPENSUSE. There's nothing wrong in using the torrent method for LEGALLY distributing software to large numbers of users - and it saves overloading the company's servers. Using proper SHA1 and CRC hashes will guarantee proper files are downloaded.
Depends on the time the update comes out, but i doubt i will be among the first
If its the usual time of updates (10am PT, 6pm UK), then i will probably wait till Wed morning to do it, most of the US will be sleeping then so the servers might be faster
just saw --general availability on Aug 2nd.
Any mention of timezone?
If its out 2nd local time, then that would be great, i would set the download going last thing at night
or i could use NZ time and get it monday afternoon
Travelling all the way to NZ to download an OS - that's dedication (it's more than a time-zone that tells MS where you are, or everyone would do it )
just thinking out loud
i'll get it when it arrives, been waiting so far so another few days is no problem
As far as the regular updates are concerned I think MS may release at the set time 10AM on their local time, US Pacific, they then release to each time zone in order each hour, that would explain how the UK has a patch Wednesday rather than a Patch Tuesday
I think some folks on the Release Preview got theirs, as early as last Friday night, here in the US. (29th) For me I won't see it until around Aug 2nd ....after 1pm my time.
Thanks, that time makes sense and seems to fit in with other updates
If it goes with that this time, i will just check for updates before bed and let it do its thing over night
Seen a few mention the Preview Release, but i would have thought more might have done this
or is this the same as the Fast Ring at the moment, i have trouble keeping up with what versions are out there
There used to be two levels or Rings on the Insider system Fast & Slow where the fast got everything released and the slow only got the safer pre checked releases. I could not justify either of these Rings on my main production system.
A short while ago Microsoft added
One ring to rule them all a third ring that only gives a slightly earlier access to major releases and tested drivers Etc. it also gives access to the insider reporting structure. This suited me so I went for it,
I think that a lot of insiders stayed with what they had and not many non insiders actually saw the change ( I tend to read all posts on all the DM forums as part of my "Job" so I did see it

I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to this. Many are calling this an 'update', whereas a few are mentioning 'upgrade'.
My understanding is that as an 'Update', we have no choice but to install it when released. i.e its just a normal...
