    Windows 10 Rollout: A Random Process?

    It would be interesting to know just how Microsft is rolling out Windows 10 to those who "reserved" it. My neighbour had his Windows 7 Pro system seamlessly updated without any trouble in the small hours of 29 July here in South Africa. My own two Windows 8.1 Pro desktops are still waiting (they have both been declared "compatible"). A friend in another part of the country is still waiting for his Win 7 Pro system to be upgraded. Weird!
    (My Setup: Custom built: 4.00GHz Intel Core i7-6700K CPU; MSI Z170A Gaming Carbon Mobo (Military Class V); Win 10 Pro (64 bit)-(UEFI-booted); 16GB RAM; 500GB SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 NVME SSD; 512GB SAMSUNG 850 PRO SSD; Seagate 2TB Barracuda SATA6G HDD; 2 X GeForceGTX 1070 8GB Graphics Card (SLI); Office 2016 Prof "Click to Run" (32-bit); Acronis TI 2017 Premium, Norton Internet Security, VMWare Workstation12 Pro). WD My Book 3 1TB USB External Backup Drive). Samsung 24" Curved HD Monitor.

    @Paul T" Because I would find it interesting (I am strange that way!)

    On both my Win 7 laptops the system tray icon has vanished and I'm still waiting for the update in the UK.

    I'm not at all sure I want to know just how M$ is "rolling out" Win10. Have checked out Win10 Tech Preview - impressive but some problems remain 30JUL15, so stand on previous decision to hold off upgrading for at least three months.
