    I've still been checking my updater and the upgrade hasn't popped up yet...says i am up to date...Is this being sent out in waves?
    I'm tempted to just use the upgrading feature of the windows 10 media tool, but was trying to have some patience and wait for it to arrive in the updates...
    Did anyone ever tell you that patience is not a virtue when it comes to computers?

    I dunno, I always thought of it as part of the survival kit.

    Survival kits are for wimps. Maybe I should rephrase that to "when it comes to Betas/Technical Previews".

    Strange...has anyone had the update option go away? Yesterday it gave me the option when I selected updates, but today, it says I am up to date. I am still on 240.

    Someone on another forum said they read somewhere that the update only shows up once and if it fails will never show again, not sure how correct it is.

    WOW, I guess I can try other options? I am d/l from the TechBench now. If I build my ISO DVD, do I just boot from it? I assume it gives me the option to just upgrade and not install new. I assume that if it does, I will have my programs untouched!

    I'm concerned for those that will be getting the TH2 via normal system updates (eventually). I've upgraded several relations and friends' machines to W10 since August and just hope this all proves easy and straight-forward for them - I expect I might get a few emails/calls crying "Help!"

    Hopefully Microsoft will have the problems ironed out for them, but don't hold your breath.

    FWIW, I just let Windows Update do the update on Lappy 17 and all went well.

    Thanks and I appreciate your testing results. I feel 30% faster is an exaggerated figure, but there are no references to anything in the article nor from MS themselves. I'd simply like to see there testing results to make such a claim. I'll remain in limbo otherwise.

    I take it you tested this on your "upgraded" 2010 HP P7 Desktop? "Upgraded" meaning it is not a OEM stock machine? Will you be testing it on your other machines you mention in your specs by any chance?

    OTOH, so far as "speed" with 8's, 8.1's, and 10's OS approach with navigational means, Starts, searching, preloaded MS Store apps, virtual desktops (10), and other features makes them heads-over-heels far quicker at performing work/tasks and gaining/seeing personal data. 7 was a great OS for it's time, no doubt, but old tech so far as new features I just mentioned in the others IMO.
    No I wont be testing the variance on the other PC's here .I would need to have windows 10 x64 and Windows 7 x64 on the same NTFS hdd to get valid comparisons . The other two are on on 10568.3 no more win 7 x64 for them (or this one ) and the 7 x64 workstation hdd isn't getting another OS on it .

    The only difference would be likely minor but statistically valid percentage wise unless you dropped both OS onto an SSD that would improve the hdd I/O throughput but again the variance might hold up .

    We tested this on several different configurations on Windows Insider forums with similar results a long time ago it's ben like that since Windows 10 test build 10029 that we know of .
