What's also funny is that yesterday's laptop update generated a "congratulations" e-mail, sent to me today. No confirmation e-mail came after my desktop upgrade request, IIRC. Its upgrade status flag tells me I'm good to go, however.

It just shows up. :shrug:
Have 4 notifications on 4 different PC units here (including 2 laptops and a WIN 8.1 tablet.

The notifications seem to appear soon after you do your latest Windows updates. I know not everyone does their updates as regularly as others...but as soon as my daily updates were done...the notifications showed up (and were successfully completed).

I sold my Dell XPS 18 computer and updated to a ACER Aspire AZ1-621G-UW11. Interested me to see the Windows 10 update window come into play. The Acer is brand new so will install all the updates available as soon as possible.

I got notification quite a few weeks ago to reserve my free copy on my 4 year old Samsung RV511. Said it will download once available. I have not taken them up on the offer and don't know if I will.
Personally, I'd recommend it. Maybe not right away, but before the free offer expires in July 2016.

I wonder if this rollout will be better run then the ACA rollout? Got to be about the same number of people.

I check and update my PC daily. This morning when I attempted to install Definition for Windows Defender-KB915597 (Definition 1.201.836.0) it failed with message stating Microsoft was installing other updates (probably for Windows 10) and to try later. I gave it a hour and when I went back to Windows Update the failed update was installed.

Sony has issued a warning that there is a risk of software/driver corruption and are advising not to install Windows 10 until after their investigation this summer. Sony is currently having issues with Gracenote not working with their products.

I'm gonna wait til the dust settles. Last week my wonky desktop about drove me nuts (not a long drive). I don't want to go thru anything like that again for a while.

I just got my Microsoft notice on my HP Pavilion G6 today. It let me "reserve" my copy for installation on I think July 28 or 29th. Why should I or anyone have to reserve a copy of intellectual property, when it is endlessly replicable?


"Sir, you don't know what it means to reserve a car."

"No, YOU don't know what it means to reserve a car, because of you did, there'd be a car here for me. The one you reserved."

One is reserving their place in line for the download ... which will be sometime no earlier than the release date.

Microsoft does not have the bandwidth nor support system to upgrade every eligible machine on the same day. So they will be rolling it out beginning on the release date until all reservations are filled.

I couldn't find it when I searched the archives for it a month ago, but back around 2002, when this site did not require registration to post, someone using the temporary screen name "trust me" announced the schedule for DirecTV sending out the revised software to remedy a dozen problems in the GAEBO/Sony B55s, (or was it B65s? I forget) that they had insisted didn't exist. It said that one night they'd go to every receiver in a certain area code (303?), and then the next night, to every receiver associated with an eastern time zone account, the next night to every central time zone account and the final night to every other account, with the caveat being that they would slow down the release schedule if they encountered difficulty handling the customer calls pursuant to each download.

The software revision worked great, solving every reported problem. I had been sending Hughes and Sony E-mails telling them of my plight, which was that when the tuner was set up in the secret, "stacked" mode for multiple dwelling use, it could not tune frequency-shifted transponders 12, 14, 16 and 18, which was killing me.

A week later, I got my first "reply" from Sony. They apologized for taking so long to get back to me, but added that since they hadn't heard from me since, they were going to assume that I had found a way to remedy the problem myself so they would not be contacting me further in this matter. Riiiight. I rewrote my own tuner software. Clever me.
