    For those interested in switching between Skippy and not Skippy:

    Skip Ahead to Next Release for Windows 10 Insiders in Fast Ring Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials

    Tested this on a VM. Had Skippy build 16257. Switched to Next version, got 16278. Switching back to Skippy, am now downloading 16353:

    I wasn't sure if the registry trick would work anymore because although registry clearly shows I had switched back to Skippy, the message in Insider settings is somewhat confusing:

    Anyway, regardless of that confusing message, switching back to Skippy seems not to be a problem, you just need to change that one value in registry.

    All happy! 32 minutes. No hiccups, burps or other nasty gyrations. ISO, also.

    Mine went through on both machines with nary glitch nor hitch. Maybe the software is "stable?" It's looking increasingly ready for general release, IMO. Hope I'm right about that...

    Not sure Skippy is ready for John Q. Public, Ed!

    Agreed, but the underlying code base for RS3 looks pretty good. Thanks for reminding what the heck it is we're talking about. Had to laugh at myself when I read your comment. "Oh yeah," I thought: "We're talking about the skipahead stuff, that's right!" ;-)

    About 1 hour and 40 minutes from start to finish including ISO. Now it's time to look around.

    They could release it now, and fix any crinkles with cumulatives, but that wouldn't set well with the masses. Has to be as bullet-proof as they can get it before starting the party.

    The above confuses me. Does this mean that there will be no more RS3 Builds till the Final?

    If you DIDNíT opt in to Skip Ahead, youíre receiving the latest builds of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (RS3). You will eventually start receiving builds for the next feature update of Windows 10 (RS4) once we release the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

    If you DID opt in to Skip Ahead, youíre receiving early builds for the next feature update of Windows 10 (RS4).
    No, if you're not on Skip Ahead, things will proceed as per normal; i.e. Fast Ring/Slow Ring until the Fall Update is RTM'd. IOW, we'll continue to get bug fixes and such, but no new features to speak of.

    Once the Fall Update is released, Skip Ahead will basically cease to be and things will proceed to RS 4 for the rest of us, pretty much the same as they did with the last RTM.
