I haven't gotten any download but the "Get Windows 10" icon has disappeared from my system tray. I guess that's because I already reserved my copy a while ago. It just vanished today

I haven't received the download yet, but I just received an email from Windows Insider where to download it.

Is there any indication of what may have gone wrong?

I started the Upgrade process and after 1 hour and 15 minutes I'm posting this using MS Edge.
Now just a matter of settling in and getting to know her :-)
Smilies here on the forum don't seem to work with MS Edge??

If you want to get away from abuse or if you dont want any data collection then throw your PC out of the window :)

Hi Rednose & Steven Winderlich,

Why one thinks it is that Windows 10 is offered as a free update then? Answer that basic question and you know some of the answers.

Throwing your computer or smartphone out of the window is no option of course. We see it is an opt-out situation only, so all that stay with the default settings will have these new privacy issues. We know the modern trends and MS is following the market of to-day - see what software bundlers do everyday.

For me the most annoying part is that the new technology will make it harder and harder to block personalised ads, but it isn't as bad yet as on a Google Chrome OS where you cannot use a decent adblocker even for your own protection against malvertising, and that is a real threat. When MS decides to go the same way as Google does then they are certainly crossing a line for me - they will hand in our  security for their marketing model by selling insecurities as "features or benefits" & "awesome user friendliness". We always had this situation, this is nothing new in this world, only the technological means make it so much harder to circumvent.

Agreed Pol, in that case I'll be off to Linux.
