    Hi there

    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.

    Cheers
    jimbo
    They have it already for quite some time:)
    It's just that, like me, most people keep it turned off.

    It might. if others turn it on too. It will be less stress on Microsoft's servers, and probably speed things up for all.

    My only concern with it is the potential amount of data it uses, it could be massive

    If my PC suddenly starts sending out lots of data then my ISP might get suspicious

    or am I just turning into the Tin Foil Hat brigade

    Who will it be?
    There are thousands, if not millions already on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. I've got 5 computers at my house on the Anniversary update with no glitches. I also have 1 computer the update failed on. It's my 81 year old father-in-law's computer. God only knows what he did to his computer to keep it from updating.

    The 5 computers on my house show build 14393.5 on Winver. 2 of those computers have never been on the insider program. They were updated with the 14393.0 ISO file and then pulled the cumulative update to 14393.5 from normal Windows update channel. So what is going to happen to them on August 2? Absolutely nothing, because they, and my 3 insider computers, are already on the Anniversary update.

    Neither my mother-in-law nor may daughters whose computers I updated while they were shopping, notice any difference at all and I think that will be the experience of the standard user - until they wonder into settings for some reason and then, "Oh, look, I didn't notice that being that way before."

    Nope, it's just a choice everyone else needs to make for themselves Paul. Plus some have data caps, or other technical reasons, it's not feasible for them to do it(slow band width), but if you have a lot of installations at home, ie PC's and VM's it might be worth it then, for the local network option, to relieve the bandwidth from downloading to each and every machine.

    Cliff, have you seen any evidence the option to pull updates from other PC's actually works? I've got the option enabled on all my computers and it seems like every update is pulled directly from the internet.

    As stated above, I just turned it on, I kept it off, as for me it didn't matter if I got it from the servers, I pay for 25Mb/s(usually get 27 though) and only have 2 physical machines and my landline telephone connected to it.
    The thread brought to mind(plus the server overload yesterday at Microsoft, that prevented me from downloading the Media Pack for my Windows 8.1 N VM yesterday) that maybe I should "donate bandwidth" to relieve the servers, if possible.
    I'm hoping it might atleast do something.
