    For insiders surprise you already have it (I couldn't resit)


    For the non insiders it is possible nothing will happen on the 29th.

    With this massive upgrade coming up Microsoft has enabled a form of P2P so everyone downloading from the Microsoft servers may in fact be uploading part of their downloads to other users either on the LAN / home network or in the general neighbourhood. So perhaps some of us with plenty of machines need them on and that can help spread the load.

    I know that delivery method has been talked out and thought out but it sure seems to me like a huge security hole waiting to be exploited.

    I have come to the conclusion that in this day and age with cars being hacked, companies having details about customers being stolen the only way for it to be fixed is to jail some top executives and fine the companies involved several million $$$ so they get themselves sorted out. Security is always last on the list and Chrysler for example do not get just how serious this attack parameter could be. There are probably people working on shear brute force attacks as we speak. Seriously in what world does a car engine and control systems need to be wide open to the internet.
    Also fonts, seems incredible that a malformed font on a document or website can lead to the ability to take over a Windows PC and allow full control on the computer. Why do fonts need kernel access in 2015?

    Time for Microsoft to be fined for some of these security exploits.

    I believe you will get a notice that it's ready for download.

    If I were you, I'd make at least a couple of backups of data. Just for good measure. Oh, and I'd download the free version of Macrium Reflect and make an image of your Windows 7 or 8.1 installation too. If you need to roll back, it'll be easier to do with Macrium.
    Thanks, I do use Macrium and I will be sure to make backups.

    Nah, not quite. Close, but no cigar!

    You're absolutely right here, because Microsoft has only so many servers, and I'm pretty sure they'll all be busy serving the Insiders.

    This option is available in Windows 10, but not in Windows 8.1.

    To be honest, I am relieved that this is the case. I'd hate the idea of some miscreant pushing Malware onto my machine when I am expecting a shiny new OS.

    I think what I've read is that for Insiders, the bits and pieces are downloaded to our machines and then after we get it, the rest of the world will. We're special!
    Of course we (insiders) are special, if somebody has to crash and burn......

    That must be it, I noticed a lot of outgoing traffic during and after update download (I follow and pay attention to things like that). I attributed it to my system sending info about success of update installation but it may be that they are using my system to send same or part of downloaded files to others over internet. My W10 installation is not connected to home network so there's nothing else to send files to.
