    Everything looked reasonable until this last "Fact".
    Fact: You’d have to be stone-cold crazy to install Windows 10 on a production machine on July 29

    I am going to do exactly that on my new Dell XPS8700. Okay I do have full backup of ALL my files on a USB HDD and the other computer running Win 8.1 so maybe I'm only slightly crazy.
    That is an odd statement though referring to the article not you CalBear37.


    I am actually going to do that myself and I will see if I get a 3gb downloaded in the next few days. There are so many testers out there. I used 10240 for awhile as well.

    That actually settles nothing. Certainly, people who are upgrading from 7 or 8.1 are looking at a 3 G download. That says nothing about Insiders that have been running 10240 for a week and more.
    Nope, it says that the upgrade requires a 3 GB download.

    10.0.240 is not the upgrade - that has also been explicit stated by MS. Couldn't find Abe's tweet, so this will have to suffice

    Not MS official but might shine a little light on what is going on.
    Iv'e seen other posts by this guy and he seems to get his info correct.

    Microsoft is working on stabilizing build 10240 for the general public. As evidenced by buildfeed.net, they are already up to 10508 internally. Once the launch campaign wines down, Windows Insiders will probably start seeing the first revision to Windows 10 in the near future.

    This is the article. Windows 10: Fact vs. fiction | InfoWorld I guess the link didn't come through properly in the quote.

    So if you download the Windows 10 upgrade over top of 7 or 8.1, can you then zap your drive and do a clean install? I thought there was a thread on this, so if you want to link it, that way I don't derail the thread.

    I think you have to download something to create a usb or dvd installation media, maybe we will find out how on Wednesday.

    Yep - download through WU (or GWX - not sure about GWX)

    10500+ are Redstone builds, not Threshold builds. They jumped the build from 10240 to 10500 on the Redstone branch.

    Actually, no. That does not say what you think it says. It does *NOT* say that 10240 isn't the final version. It says that, at the time of the tweet, MS had not yet declared the final version. Nothing stops MS from declaring 10240 the final and "signing off" on it at a later time, just that at that point in time it had not yet done so.
    Nice that you left off the other part Couldn't find Abe's tweet, so this will have to suffice - that tweet actually said NOT ... moot now though bc we both know that the Day one path and 10240.16405.150725-1815.th1 will be downloaded
