has a very reputable origin (german c't magazine website), saw it recommended on superuser. But havent tried it.

How quick / slow is an update to spread around the world?

As an example, my PC just updated:

Windows 10 Version 1607 (KB3194798)

That is the anniversary update.  And they are staggering release.  It was started on August 2nd... sort of.  That was the official release date given, but some people had it before then.

And because of that, when you get it, you might be getting it with other updates that were found in the meantime.

As an example, my PC just updated:Windows 10 Version 1607 (KB3194798)

I realize I should have searched for a build number:

Windows 10 Pro, Version 1607, Build 14393.321

Look at that wikipedia article linked above.  It has all of the builds there.
