So how did the Win10 install go for you?

    I got my notification email while at work, so I can't update my machine for another couple of hours.

    Let me live vicariously through your experiences in the mean time ...

    Spent the morning down in Reading and used MS WiFi to complete a very quick install on my Linx 7 tablet. All went well. One of the final bits of the install process is a check for updates (there are a few). 😊

    Good luck to all installing today!

    surface pro 2 with 8.1   I had reserved the upgrade over a month prior.

    same ms account as my windows 10 pc.

    at about 1am ran windows update and got the read to go message.

    started the upgrade and left it for about an hour and got a login screen.

    logged in and let it finish....

    done.  ready to go.

    MSDN x86 and x64 bits installed smoothly in hyper-v VMs.

    Got booted out after I played my game for 5 minutes. Hence my other thread.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    It went really smooth.  Clicked a couple of buttons and done.  Haven't had a chance to test everything yet but so far appears that everything still works.  Noticing a few bugs but I am sure they will get worked out soon.

    Two laptops went ok and three desktops are waiting (I wonder how they pick who goes first?)

    A complicated process involving the color of your eyes, your favorite food, and whether you like cats or dogs.

    @Sven Groot: Sven, when you have had enough of working at Microsoft, I would suggest you not try being a comedian. :D

    I downloaded the ISO and burnt a DVD, which is now sitting on my desk, while I think about it...

    Has anybody NOT gotten notification about the upgrade? I have 5 Windows 8.1 machines and one Windows 10 insider preview machine. I've received notification on only one W8.1 machine.

    The part I found interesting was that they are apparently servicing 16 downloads per second... which @5.6GB? I guess requires a total bandwidth of about 900gbps ?! (presumably distributed across their various data-centres around the world)

    They are probably also releasing updates based on hardware and software configuration. From the data you got from the upgrade reservations, you could release the upgrade to a few hundred of a specific hardware and software setup. Based on the instrumented data you get back, you may decide to release it to a larger batch or hold them back while you make some tweak.

    All but one of my computers at home are domain joined, so I only got notified for the one. I'm going to wait on it since it is my DAW and Steinberg has not certified Cubase 8 yet. One of my development laptops already has 10240 on it and tonight I will install RTM versions of VS2015 and the Windows 10 RTM SDK. The rest I will upgrade over the coming weeks.

    It went fine. Skype desktop has no DPI scaling though, so it is blurry by default.

    Seems like others have noticed. http://community.skype.com/t5/ideas/v2/ideapage/blog-id/Windows_Ideas/article-id/4349/page/1#comments

    Well, my own installation was not smooth -- Windows Update was failing to upgrade and giving a raft of different error codes which all seemed to be about Windows Installer rather than about the Win10 update.

    Fortunately, I downloaded an ISO from MSDN and will apply that then I'm home tis evening.  Frustrating for me as a technical user, however I can imagine a non-technical user not even noticing that anything was wrong (no 'Win 10 failed to install' messages or anything unless you look in the update history) and just either giving up or waiting and assuming it wasn't released for their machine yet. Hopefully MS sort these things out fast enough that no-one will really notice.

    Still only one machine has gotten a notification. Unfortunately, this is the one I'm not prepared to upgrade due to hardware changes that I want to make prior to upgrading.

    Another machine has finally gotten the files downloaded into the hidden folder, but it hasn't gotten a notification to upgrade. My other machines simply haven't downloaded the files yet.

    Yesterday, Dan Rayburn, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan, citing ISP and CDN (content delivery network) sources, said that Microsoft would begin downloading bits to some users' devices starting at 4 p.m. ET. Microsoft had wanted to begin on Saturday, July 25, but had to postpone as its delivery and distribution partners freed up capacity for the massive 40Tbps (terabits per second) the Redmond, Wash. company had reserved.
