Here I have been wondering if that would be the case or not but we won't know for sure until the offer expires and the update is out as to whether or not the update will be available as a separate download in ISO form or by WU only besides direct online or dvd media purchase. First I will left the RS1 go on here as the update and then see if a clean install will be needed as far as the 10 side of the dual boot goes or it takes wirhout any "Ut oooohs..."?!
They didn't take the Windows 8.1 MCT down , or the Windows 7 MCT down? Why take the Windows 10 MCT down?
EDIT: It will likely be revamped, but I don't think they will take it down.
TBH, I doubt that I'll bother with it. Probably stay on build 10586, or even go back
to the still-superior Win 8.1.1 - with MS updates turned OFF, as has long been the
case with my Win 7 machine.
My interest in computing remains unscathed, but my love of beta-testing and my
liking for MS products have both plummeted since Win 10 arrived, as evidenced
by the fact that I long-ago ceased being an 'Insider' and now seldom even bother
to read about Windows in the tech press. Even when I come here, it's mainly to
check-out the sigs and artwork of other members and catch up on gossip, rather
than any real interest in or love of Win 10.
Even the phone - my much-loved Windows phone (Nokia 520 with WP 8.1) began
to fail, and was replaced - with an Android, because I do NOT want Win 10 on my
It was fun while it lasted, but...
People are still going to want to do clean installs and people are still going to want to install the latest version when they do. Also people are going to buy new computers with Windows 10 and then something is going to happen and they need to re-install Windows 10 and won't have an install media to do it with. The Windows 10 MCT isn't going anywhere - just like the Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 MCTs haven't gone anywhere.
Even if I were to have the Anniversary Edition on my computer, by virtue of having been an Insider, I can change my Update and Security Options to Insider.
Edit: I also know that if someone downloads the full version thinking to install it on their computer, that unless they have a valid product key, it won't go past the request for the key. Which brings another thought to mind. What if I could buy the product key from Newegg (or another retailer) and then be instructed to download the MCT?
Funny thing is my name is Rock and my wife's name is Doris; we are Rock and Doris. We have a nice little collection of movie posters and stuff that say Rock and Doris.
