    I don't think Microsoft is thinking clearly. Let say you upgrade your system to windows 10 November update and you met the system requirements. Then Microsoft release an anniversary update but your system doesn't meet the requirements. What are you suppose to do? Can you keep the November update without the Anniversary update trying to install?
    EVERYONE please note: These are the requirements that OEM's must satisfy in order to certify their new offerings and Windows 10 capable. If your machine runs Windows 10 now, it will run the Anniversary update just fine - it's not going to test to see if you have UEFI or whatever.

    Microsoft would shoot themselves in the foot if current 10 users couldn't upgrade, don't think that would happen. Good info though!

    I do agree with you gtspeck they shouldn't. I just wish I could fix my display flickering issue. I am going to give windows 10 one more try when the anniversary update comes out. I hope it is fixed by then.

    I don't mean to be a bummer. Here is a couple of quotes from Windows lifecycle page.

    Windows 10, released in July 2015 **
    ** Updates are cumulative, with each update built upon all of the updates that preceded it. A device needs to install the latest update to remain supported. Updates may include new features, fixes (security and/or non-security), or a combination of both. Not all features in an update will work on all devices. A device may not be able to receive updates if the device hardware is incompatible, lacking current drivers, or otherwise outside of the Original Equipment Manufacturer’s (“OEM”) support period. Update availability may vary, for example by country, region, network connectivity, mobile operator (e.g., for cellular-capable devices), or hardware capabilities (including, e.g., free disk space

    That in bold kinds of scares me, when and if I ever purchase a windows 10 computer. Buy a computer and it can't be updated.

    That is a little different pigpenz. Windows 8.1 End of mainstream support is January 9, 2018 and end of extended support is January 10, 2023. So, you should get updates till then. Windows 7 sp1 extended support ends on Jan 14, 2020. I think Microsoft finally realized they have to support W7 sp1 tell 2020 and Win 8.1 tell 2023.

    I'm going to assume that MS will have an ISO available for this build and you can do a clean instillation if it is available.

    I sure hope so.

    From the link provided in the OP:

    This specification does not provide compatibility and certification requirements for devices and computers that run Windows 10 or implementation guidance for exceptional user experiences. Microsoft will provide this guidance in other documents at a later date.
    If your computer runs Windows 10 now, it will run the anniversary update.

Could build 14346 be the Anniversary Update RTM?
Was looking at BuildFeed, this is the last build listed there: 10.0.14346.1000.rs1_release.160512-1748 Since it looks like RS1 is pretty much feature complete, could this build be the final release?
