Supposedly it is July 29.-MilesAhead (June 01, 2015, 05:42 AM)

I've read that July 29 is the RTM date. But there's a bit of a delay between RTM and when it's officially released to the public.

TaoPhoenix:
But I'll have to decide what their timetable is, and whether if whatever they would call 10.1 with their rolling updates contains any bugfixes that sound really important.

What worries me is that they want to do everything using the Window Update.  That is just too much work if something blows up.  I even had several machines balk at installing ordinary service packs.  Never mind sifting through all the updates to see what to put on and what to leave out.  The descriptions are not very informative.  I feel like I am working for them at no pay when I start reading through all that stuff.  I try to stay away from Windows Update if at all possible.

I'd normally prefer to just install all updates, but I recall some of the stories about how not all of the 8.x updates connected smoothly. Now imagine that with the entire OS involved with lots of updates! You can have say 20 updates that go just fine, then "that one update" hoses everyone or something.



Well, I meant from the perspective of not installing it at all until "10.1", but yes, I am also quite distrustful of their "rolling forever" approach - because let's just suppose it doesn't work, then they change their minds again (!!), and "go back to classic distribution", but in the meanwhile the early adopters become guinea pigs!

Arizona Hot:


Found this notification in my Win 7 icon bar. The end is near!

Jibz:
Some places say the upgrade offer is available in the first year after Windows 10 is released.

Edit: The FAQ seems to cover most of these:

The FAQ wasn't working for me last night when I clicked the links. I just got an error 404 type message.

But now it is! Oddly, the EN-US version is different from the EN-GB version:
