    Really? a branch that is just beginning and you declare it "dead" just because Microsoft has taken a little more than a week to release a build for that branch? several times have been two or three weeks without Microsoft releasing a build and yet people do not declare that branch "dead" only for that, what happens if today or tomorrow Microsoft releases a new build for Skip Ahead?
    The insider team said last night that skip ahead was experimental and is subject to change for the spring release. No details on what that might be yet.

    Even that build apparently has anything new that name implies, it's even behind normal fast builds !! It's more like Skip Back. MS could provide at least some hints about eventual newer features and give us some previews of them, if nothing else at least to peek some interest into it. If none, it's at leas o little bit dead. Presumably it's a start to Rs4 before October 17th. after which it will be actual anyway if insider builds are to be continued at all. So yes, it looks like to be on death bed anyway.
    Couldn't really blame them, all resources are tied up in Rs3 finalization but at least a part would be in future development as it does take long time.
    That is your opinion and is respectable but I disagree, I made this comment in another thread about that:

    It is normal, they said that they would focus on FCU, when RS3 is officially released to the public, the insider team will focus on RS4, also, as it always happens, these first builds don't bring anything "exciting".

    Update was smooth and fast (30ish minutes).
    Installation slowed down a bit at 80%, disabled Windows defender and it jumps to 90s...

    I completely disagree. The question is, what is better: to risk completely bricking your tablet because upgrade fails and can't restore the previous version due lacking Windows.old folder and then being forced to clean install, or to manage and maintain your tablet (using external SD card / USB) in such a way that there will be enough space to upgrade and create Windows.old?
    Most of these tablets use some storage space for a factory recovery image. In my opinion it's better to remove this recovery partition and use that space for C: drive, then use Macrium to image the device to external target, than to not create Windows.old.
    Kari
    My thoughts exactly - I delete the recovery partition and use Acronis to keep an up-to-date disk image.

    I asked for the option to make/not make windows.old folder long ago - no luck
    Also asked for the option to have "Select all" as an option when using disk cleanup - no luck

    I can understand MS's reluctance to do either of these things - no all Windows users are as smart as we be.

    Can't speak to your other issues, but the last one is probably because you chose the option to use your sign-in info to complete the update...under your Account>Sign-in Options. I'm not on Insider right now, so I can't post a screenshot....maybe someone else can.
    Thanks for the reminder, yes, that explains that part. I'm claiming a "senior moment."

    But they will continue releasing the "prerelease" builds of RS4 in Skip Ahead until October 17, then (as we all know) the Fast ring and Skip Ahead will merge and everything will return to normal, Fast ring, Release Preview and Slow and I repeat, as has always happened with these first builds, we should not expect new features for now.

    Wouldn't that be Tenth sense ?
    Coulda been, Cereberus, but maybe the Count pegged it. :)

    Anyway, when I woke up and logged in this morning, I had the new lock screen. Gave it my PW and got HI! We've got some updates . . . Everything seems to have gone smoothly while I finished my night's sleep. :)
