    Windows 10: Preparing to Upgrade One Billion Devices

    Brink,

    Am I understand this correctly?

    Not everyone will get windows 10 on July 29 unless you are an insider. I wonder if they will be rolling out windows 10 to a windows 7 or 8.1 user on July 29, 2015. I have patience but do not have much patience. I was actually expecting it to be installed on July 29, 2015 not in rolling releases.

    Given that millions have reserved a copy of Windows 10 then tbh there is no way it could be pushed to everybody on the 29th, I'd say it will be weeks before all the reservations are filled.

    Makes a lot of sense for insiders to be first in the queue, this should give time for insiders and M$ to sort out any remaining bugs.

    Yup, clever way for MS to sneak Final to Insiders first, and have 5 million people verify that there's no day 1 patches required before the majority of reservations are filled.

    I thought the idea of reserving it was so it could slowly be downloaded to you machine over time, so come 29th it would be ready

    On the bit about going to insiders first, is this insiders on 10 or anyone who is part of it, ie if I have a win 10 build and a win 8.1 build, as an insider would both these be updated at the same time

    we are getting closer though, so I am sure these will be found out soon *Smile

    And the Bloggers are having a Hay Day now across the net.
    CNet:
    "Windows 10 may not reach you on its July 29 launch date"
    "Microsoft now says the Windows 10 rollout will be carried out in waves, with July 29 only the starting date."

    The Verge:
    "Not everyone will get Windows 10 on its July 29th release date"

    And more are popping up.
    Here comes the worries & questions(Why don't I have it yet, where is 10, what am I missing...etc*chuckle)

    You try to explain but they don't: 1. understand 2.want to understand 3.want to hear.
    Just like when I tell people they won't need the GWX software to get Win10 when it comes out. Microsoft will most likely have an update/installer download link, but no, "I WANT MY ICON!!!"*Roflmao2

    One billion, huh, well that will be amazing?

    Here is what I find interesting, they have told us that they have 5 million insiders, now I know for a fact a portion of those won't upgrade. But, the telling is that they have not released any numbers as to how many reserved copies have been ordered. I think if that were in the multi-millions upon millions, they would be gushing with the release of such information.

    So, that leads me to believe, not as many as they had hoped for will be making this transition. I even wonder how many OEMs will be eager, or not so eager, to move to this particular OS.

    Will a Live ID be a requirement to install Windows 10? Or to update it once it is installed?

    It seems to me that MS might get up with almost a billion stunned customers: People who want at least the illusion of increased privacy and separation from the internet.

    A live.com log-in is being promoted as offering additional security, but I see no logic to support it. What I see is that someone a couple thousand of miles away can practice hacking into my account until the log-in is locked and I have to reset it, and reset it, and reset it. Worse, what it they succeed? They will have access to a lot of private information. This does not please me; and it might not please a couple of million or so other surprised users out there.

    Well think about it - most people are probably happy with their OS, and wanna just keep chugging along, and not have to deal with the problems that will arise from upgrading to a new version of Windows.

    A lot of the people that will consider upgrading early are probably already Insiders - joined the Insider Program to see what they will be upgrading to.

    The "almost a billion stunned customers" is an optimistic prediction, just the number not the stunned part...*Roflmao2

    The stunning part may not come in to play with the "I have nothing to hide" crowd that does not care about privacy. Others who do care will happily chug along with the non-service based MS OS for the time being...
