    Strange issue on the last 2 updates.
    They showed as loading on my bandwidth monitor but the update window stayed a 0%.
    Checked the software dist. folder files were there but the install process did not start.
    Had to stop the win update process, restart and reboot go to the update screen and the install started.
    Hope this may be just an anomaly with running in Vbox, I have not seen anyone else complaining yet.
    If not this will be a problem for folks that have little PC knowledge.

    I've seen a lot of people having problems downloading the update lately. I gave up on 158 and 162 and used the ISOs posted here. It would show as downloading but never got past zero even after an hour. If they can't handle the insiders now why do they think this will work with the general public. I don't think they'll get as many people giving up Windows 7 as they hope especially businesses.

    One of the things that has been prevalent in the "free windows 10" is "for the life of the PC", so I guess for those of us that build our own PC's and do our own upgrades the question is, what change negates the life of the PC. New HD or SSD, new CPU, more memory, new MB, etc..
    Would love to know the answer. Another only time will tell question.

    I would guess the life of a PC varies. It could last ten years or more, but, by MSs OS definition, Probably until the Motherboard packs in. Just a surmise!

    Even then, you may still have some luck with a phone call, let them know that some electrical mishap fried your motherboard and who knows, they may be sympathetic.

    Yes, my first guess was the MB. That is true for OEM but since my win7 is retail it should not be the same???????????????

    Who knows?

    Just to tease and start more speculation. LOL. MS Working now with a "debugging" build, 10500. The last "almost there" build was 10.0.10176.16384, , which is a th1 build (ready), as the RTM.. But the current rumour from the pundits is that it will reach . 10.0.10400.16384.th1, which will be the release build, (post RTM)

    All guess work, of course. Not long to wait now, anyway.
