Winxows 10 Anniversary Update: The Road to Redstone

 

It’s already been a year since Microsoft launched Windows 10, and we have had a couple of updates since release. The biggest update yet though is the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was codenamed Redstone throughout its development. It’s the first major branch from the launch codebase, which was codenamed Threshold. With it, Microsoft has added a lot of new features, polished some of the interface , and overall provided a nice update to those on Windows 10.

Here's a link to the full article. Posted 2016-08-02 @ 08:00 EST

Hmmm

As I've moved to Linux, I can afford to see what washes out in this new version. It (the old version) will remain untouched for now.

I have been running windows 10 on all my computers since it came out and love it and this sounds like it will make it even better yet. smile

Sounds like a win win to me.

The question now

Is if this update is for everyone or will this be a paid version?

Sure, it's free. There was never, ever, a question about that! All future upgrades are said to be free as well.

The upgrade took about an hour to download and install. Plus, there are some settings and defaults to reset.

After the Upgrade:

Did the upgrade pop-up for you or did you seek it out? I ran Windows Update and it doesn't show as available yet, I did read that "newer" machines will get the update first.

I transitioned my two computers, desktop 10 home, laptop 10 pro, a few months after it came out and haven't looked back.

There was no MAY have had to pay for.

I remember when Microsoft announced the new Windows 95, people lined up to BUY the OS for over $ 150.00. I was cheap and bought the update from windows 3.x to Windows 95 for about $ 95.00. But if it crashed you had to reload W 3.X and then W 95 from a CD.
There was a trick then, you installed floppy disk #1 of W 3.x which fooled the CD and then you could install W 95 from the CD without the hassle of installing the full W 3.x

I've been through them ALL !!!

THERE WERE NEVER EVER any free updates offered from Microsoft !

Link ► https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3159635

You may have to give the 'Update Assistant' a few tries over a period of time before it provides the download window for you. I assume this delay is because the MS servers are very busy.

It took about 4-5 minutes to download (using 100Mbps speed) and about ~50 minutes to install it on one of my PCs (Intel i5-3330 CPU @ 3GHz). As with the original Windows 10 install, the computer will intentionally restart a few times throughout the install process.

Updated my computers to windows 10 anniversary update

Completed the update to my laptop and desktop computers and everything went smooth and pretty much automated.

Takes between one and two hours depending on the download speed and computer speed. At the end it waits to ask a couple of questions before completing. It allows you to choose between automatic settings or customized settings. If you choose customized it takes you through the settings one at a time with a explanation of each and a toggle to turn it off.

That's not entirely true.

During the normal support period, operating systems (and some products) could receive normal, periodic updates also known as "Service."

After the product came out of it's serviceable life (usually month and year) you could, if you had deep enough pockets pay for additional service updates after end of support for the product.

Now, if those product updates that were created via the extended product serviceable process were made generally available to everyone I don't know. I know numerous large organizations, that paid explicitly for this beyond end of service option.

After the (pick one of the various incantations of the "Microsoft Update" processes) were introduced I know my machines, should I choose to manually run the "Microsoft Update" program would sometimes receive and install updates to OS and various Products.

So those OS updates were not free! Someone paid for them, it may not have been me or you, but those outside the normal end of support weren't free.

Just trying to keep this boat equally balanced and afloat.. it doesn't need to capsize.. glub.. glub... glub... where's my PFD?

You seem to be laboring under the impression that I/we are talking about new Windows versions being UPDATES. We are not. We are talking about having - pick a version of Windows - on your computer and getting an update (new features, bug fixes, etc.) to that version. Those have, to the best of my knowledge, always been free and I go back to the DOS days and have seen and used every version of Windows there has ever been.

That was yesterday, just checked again, not there.

I probably didn't make it clear, the message about the update didn't
come from windows, it came from Brothers. My printers are only from last year but the disc's are for Windows 7 & 8. So they sent me to their web site for the new drivers.

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things!

got my update

I got the original windows 10 pro install (upgrade)and then did the clean install . now ive done the update and on this computer it was easy and I had no problems (it's about 4 years old) but on my other computer (its about (6-7 years old ) it went into a loop and kept trying to restart. I know windows will restart several times during an install ! but this time it was locked in a loop and couldn't restart. any how I fixed that problem and all is well once again . I didn't notice to much difference the edge browser had some improvements and they turned every thing back on that I turned off and hid some commands to turn things off lol. I have Kaspersky and malware bytes running so I really don't need windows defender to many security programs running in the back ground just use system resources and cloud services and Cortana I don't need or want so I turn them off as needed (I build computers) so its not so hard to do correctly !

Windows 10 operating system is a definite advancement

I really like Windows 10, and the Version 1607 Update made it even better. Everything works, and works very well. I have yet to have any problems whatsoever, which says a lot! I've quickly gotten used to the Apps and I think the interactive live tiles are really cool. Everything seems quicker. I like the ease of personal modifications to get everything the way you like it. As much as I liked Windows 7 this Windows 10 operating system is a definite advancement.

A 'Windows.old' folder is created on the computer's hard-drive if the computer was upgraded from a previous Operating System (e.g. Windows 7 or Windows 8) to Windows 10. And, I believe a 'Windows.old' folder is also created when the Windows 10 computer updates to Version 1607 (the so-called 'Anniversary Update'). One of my PCs has a clean install of Windows 10 and the Version 1607 Update...and I have a 'Windows.old' folder. What I don't know at this time is what happens to computers (most people) that were both upgraded to Windows 10 and also received the Version 1607 Update. Do they have two 'Windows.old' folders if both of these events were done in the last 30 days? I don't think so...

Supposedly the 'Windows.old' folder that was created when upgrading to Windows 10 is automatically removed after 30 days of upgrading, but how about the 'Windows.old' folder that is created from the Version 1607 Update? I don't know...

I still have my [one] 'Windows.old' folder from the Version 1607 Update. I'm anxious to see if it automatically is removed 30 days after the update.

I just learned that: "If you just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8.1, note that the Anniversary Update will ►replace◄ your Windows.old folder with new files."

Thus, if you are within 30 days of having upgraded to Windows 10 and still had a 'Windows.old' folder, when you updated to Version 1607 (the Anniversary Update) it replaced the 'Windows.old' folder with a new folder with the same name.

That said, if you upgraded more than 30 days ago the 'Windows.old' folder was removed after 30 days...and when you updated to Version 1607 a new 'Windows.old' folder was created.

And, in the case of a clean install of Windows 10, of course there was no 'Windows.old' created since the harddrive was empty when Windows 10 was installed, but updating to Version 1607 created a 'Windows.old' folder.

I assume the last (and only) 'Windows.old' folder will automatically be removed after 30 days.

Note:
After upgrading to Windows 10 the previous Windows installation (e.g. Windows 7 or 8.1) that is saved in the 'Windows.old' folder is ~25GB in size.

After updating to the Anniversary Update (Version 1607) the previous Windows installation that is saved in the [replaced] new 'Windows.old' folder is 16.9GB in size.

To see the size of the 'Windows.old' folder file go to:
Cortana: Type 'Disc Cleanup' > OK > Clean up system files > OK > Scroll down to 'Previous Windows installation' This is the Windows.old folder.

Windows.old nuked with extreme prejudice

Oh I knew what the Windows.old folder was all about. Part of the cost of doing the anniversary update.

On a side note, O&O Shutup 10 when run on the anniversary update will point out that the telemetry is enabled again if previously disabled.

Not impressed ....

I only have one system running Win10 (out of 6), and I still prefer Win 7 Pro over any other Winblows software.

There are just too many ways Win 10 can snoop on you. While I'm aware that 7 isn't monitor-proof by a long shot - at least I have more control over it than with 10.

easy installation

It is good to see that Microsoft is making it easy to do this update. Making an iso file available for download and installation on a USB stick is a good idea.

New PCs will no longer have DVD drives. I just bought a Kingston 32 GB USB3 drive for $10-. Its capacity is many times that of a DVD disk. Another reason to make sure the PC is USB 3 capable.

Did you use the express settings or customize while it ran?

I always choose "custom" setup when it's available.

Using the custom setup I noticed a lot of phone home type stuff was automatically checked, which I unchecked as I went along. Prior to this update I had all that stuff turned off.

I also did not setup Cortana as it sends your info to MS as well.

I have a laptop that is 10 Pro and it gave me the option to "defer" future updates, my desktop which is 10 Home did not have the same option during setup.

ETA: both updates were done via the internet, the laptop using Wifi, the desktop hard wired, no error messages encountered.

I was never asked anything. I did nothing. It was an automatic download and worked just like regular updates.it kept everything just the same.

People that care about their settings (privacy settings in particular) use 'Customize' to make changes to their settings. But I guess many people just go with 'Use Express Settings'.

Thanks Barney

In that case I'll keep GWX Control Panel a little longer.
