    That is not what was to be released on Nov. 2nd. It was originally to be released in October, it was delayed . Now it is delayed once again.

    Hi Lee: Allow me to tag onto your post. :)

    Microsoft seems to be damned if they do and damned if they don't!

    If Microsoft releases a Build that has bugs, they're damned. If Microsoft doesn't release the next Build when people think they should, they're damned!

    I signed up for the Technical Preview. A Technical Preview is, simply put, a Beta of a program Microsoft has allowed us to Beta Test. Nobody twisted our arms to get us to do this. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! We were warned before we ever downloaded the product.

    Beta, named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet, is the software development phase following alpha. Software in the beta stage is also known as betaware. Beta phase generally begins when the software is feature complete but likely to contain a number of known or unknown bugs. Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, as well as speed/performance issues and may still cause crashes or data loss. The focus of beta testing is reducing impacts to users, often incorporating usability testing. The process of delivering a beta version to the users is called beta release and this is typically the first time that the software is available outside of the organization that developed it. Beta version software is often useful for demonstrations and previews within an organization and to prospective customers. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, preview release, prototype, technical preview / technology preview (TP), or early access. Some software is kept in perpetual beta, where new features and functionality are continually added to the software without establishing a firm "final" release.

    Beta testers are people who actively report issues of beta software. They are usually customers or representatives of prospective customers of the organization that develops the software. Beta testers tend to volunteer their services free of charge but often receive versions of the product they test, discounts on the release version, or other incentives.
    The above quoted text explains exactly what a Technical Preview/Beta is and what the function of a Beta Tester is. If this isn't what you thought you were getting into, then it may be to your advantage to gracefully bow out of the TP of Windows 10.

    Such is life. I'm a record collector and I experience delays daily as part of my hobby. Record companies always say that such-and-such a title will be released on a particular date, and then we get told time and time again that there is a delay. Right now I am waiting on 4 albums bought and paid for in 2013 that still have not been released, and uncounted announced in 2014 that still have not seen the light of day. These companies do their best, and none of them have lost credibility in the audiophile circles.

    @Gary

    Lol, I love that "NO" button Gary. It's funny right, because I was waiting on the Nov 2 update date as well for RTM, and then when yesterday my TP updated, I was like yea .... no way they are updating the RTM consumers if I just got another TP yesterday, and then boom I stumbled across this article.

    I feel it will be another week or 2. My original guess (I can't find the post) was that the first SP or "Threshold" for Windows 10 (when RTM came out) was December. I hope I am wrong about that, and too bad we didn't have a contest like last time, lol. I'll die if my prediction of December was correct

    Who know at this point. Gabe Aul is known for making promises he can't keep. He teases tests about new builds that never come out. For all I know it could be in December.

    Which wouldn't surprise me (anymore) in the least since in my mind, that was my original guess in the Summer. I was like, yea ... maybe December ... Christmas time .... somewhere around there. But I hope I'm wrong ... lol

    This is not about a Technical Preview, it is about an update to the RTM that was to happen on November 2, 2015, prior to that it was to happen in October. So this is two delays, two deadlines that were not kept. Will there be a third? I hopwe not.

    Oh, they will definitely take their time. But they will greatly disappoint when it comes to the "getting it right" part, as they usually do.
