    Exclamation Tired of Waiting?

    Folks,

    Something in another IT Forum has made it seem possibly timely to remind or mention this, again.

    It is not a bug nor a complaint to submit to a government department nor something to fuss about on principle. If you know your 7 SP1 or 8.1 machine will support Win10, have Reserved 10 & are STILL waiting for "Ready to Install" notification.... DO NOT KEEP WAITING; there is nothing to be gained. Use the MediaCreationTool and go ahead & do the Upgrade w/out further unnecessary delay.

    This is not an excuse for anything nor a workaround... it is just merely a solution to waiting for the process to find its way to your machine; that can take a varied, and sometimes long time... which, is why the MediaCreationTool is available.

    Cheers,

    Are you going to personally troubleshoot the flood of BSODs from disgruntled users after following your plea?

    Maybe MS telemetry data has given good reason not to push it out to some users, remember the debacle when MS pushed it to the wrong batch of 'phones and bricked them a little while ago?

    Just a guess but I would think that anyone that reallllly wanted win 10 probably already has it. LOL, Win 10 "The good, the bad, and the ugly".

    There are use cases where it simply does not make sense to upgrade to Windows 10, at this time.

    I personally will wait a few more months.

    There was no "plea", just some information for (some) people; Nor fuel for arguing or editorializing.

    The info given has nothing to do w/ someone delaying going to 10 on purpose. It was to those thinking they were oblidged wait for the Reserve process.

    IMO, I think your post was heavily slanted toward the "upgrade without further unnecessary delay" position, rather than clearing up any perceived misconceptions about reserving.

    And then that opinion would be incorrect. And apparently I know myself better than you know me. Your judgement is incorrect. And the OP could have been lift & taken @ face value... rather than you using it as an opportunity to give me a hard time, twist words & meaning & trying to be confrontational. Your on your own.

    And interestingly enough no other IT Forum has mistreated the material or the contributor of said material.

    Have you ever asked yourself why you get so much push-back here?

    No need. It's blatantly obvious, due to a couple of people who are here & not elsewhere.

    Of course, for those with Win 7, there's no need to downgrade to Win 10...
