    Here is what we know right now (real quick): 10166 is on the fast ring. It is downloadable if you have 10162. We are downloading it now.

    Mine is also downloading... A little slower than normal... The good news is, so far, the Download progress is moving...

    I am disappointed it wasn't at least 10176

    Did not they say that 10162 had 300 bug fixes... I wonder how many still haven't been fixed.

    I probably should have enabled my second Network Adapter. Yesterday, when I was just downloading a Defender update, it only went to 9% until after I had disabled it. I would think, some type of problem regarding multiple network adapters on a system, would be an OS bug and not an App bug.

    Edit: Download done.. be back soon.

    These insider previews certainly have been interesting, makes me think the actual windows 10 will be rather boring now.

    The activation key in the PID.txt file appears to be the same as it has always been. I suppose that no longer works for a clean install..... You would think they would update that key.

    I just wish they would make up my mind on how wide the start menu is going to be. 6wide, 3wide, back to 6wide, expandable horizontally, not expandable horizontally, expandable vertically. Jeez

    Remember folks if you don't like the Start Menu you can still use Classic Shell :)
