Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14959 for PC and Mobile Insider
sods law I had no bother downloading and installing it
uninstalled it and tried again same problem
Microsoft messaging relay was working!!! After the Preview Build 14959 install the stock sms messaging icon was rolling in my message count.
I thought that was awesome to have back and working.
However it brought all my previous messages but not showing current incoming messages.
I'm ok with that as it shows Microsoft is working on it and may not have to bother with some rogue dark tacky stranger wants to ad me Skype to deliver them after all.
Well this time Microsoft was not content with just destroying GRUB but wiped my entire openSUSE partition and a XFS formatted HD with all my data. Installed some weird BIOS code on the drive. Didn't ask me - very nasty. Not a problem - merely a challenge. I'm in Windows now and the 'puter dual boots with GRUB in the MBR. So much for that. I'm virtualizing this Windows partition and will run it as a VM. Windows will be downsized from 140 to 128GB as well. A Hyper-V Windows 10 VM did actually time sync but blew out my host router which had to be rebooted. Here's a screenshot of my Windows machine with Windows 10 Hyper-V time sync enabled
I played with it a little bit but find it 'kludgy' and needs some 'help' menus. I have used Corel Draw for many iterations and like it at this point much better.
I learned a lot about it when my mother had her aneurysm rupture. The doctor said she could of had it since birth. She use to complained about getting dizzy spells and having fuzzy vision with them. Her family doctor always said it was her nerves. It was just over a month before they could operate on her. They had to wait for the brain swelling to go down. Except for it slowing down her thought process she came out fine. My Brother went into a coma for about 2 1/2 months before passing.
I have been having problems with Edge the last 5-6 builds
It stops and needs to recover websites all the time
I don't prefer to do anything but upgrade these days (as I have 200+ programs and games installed), but my c:\ drive (SSD) is dedicated to Windows, drivers, and utilities, exclusively, with everything else on several separate physical drives/partitions spanning a few TB's, so I always backup the latest installed build (c:\) in case of a problem. At any rate, wanted to say that the last three builds, including this one (14959), have all installed perfectly through WU via the flight upgrade--so haven't needed to go the esd-iso upgrade route in a while (don't need a tlu, etc.). It seems Microsoft has refined the upgrade process so that now it is reliable enough to begin taking for granted--fingers crossed, big grain of salt...
Here are my specs using Belarc Advisory. I did end up installing Flash FWIW.

I don't know how this post started out for you, Marty, but it's so run together that I don't think anyone can make any sort of sense of it.
You may want to start over.
