    Release + Insider Preview Home Build 16179 (VMWare)
       15 Jul 2015 #262

    Fastest Upgrade to date! If this doesn't spell out RTM, then I don't know what does. From clicking on restart to ending up on desktop, it took a total of only 24:28:63! That's 24 minutes folks! Granted I'm on an SSD, so your results might vary. But compared to that nightmarish build of 10130, this is a vast improvement. That took me literally a day and a half to install! We are literally 10 seconds from landing folks (pardon my awful aviation analogy), the wheels will be hitting the ground quite quickly and jolts will be felt!

    Now, if I could get Lastpass installed into Edge, I will be totally stop using Chrome on this laptop. But alas, that will come after the July 29 ship date....

    Not unless you want to be able to go back to the last build. WATCH OUT! You cannot just delete the folder as it leaves a complete mess. Use the disk cleanup utility instead.
    thanks for the info.

    I certain agree and left it on. Other large program installs are doing exactly the same thing. World of Warcraft downloads from other users during the initial install and during patches ( as I would assume other Blizzard games do- I wonder about STEAM?). I was just surprised by it more than anything else. This is MS we are talking about, the king of the server center, promoting torrenting.
    I hear you, I posted that screen shot in another thread and got the same reaction from another forum member. He was suggesting Microsoft should use bit torrent for updates etc. Then I showed him that and he had a OMG moment.

    Mines up to 50. Any disk activity? If so let it chug along.
