Windows 10 Anniversary Edition

Postby rscroggin » Sun Oct 02, 2016 11:48 am

I have the Anniversary Edition of Windows 10 installed on my home computer and especially like the changes made to the Start Menu. I was wondering if it's okay to manually upgrade to the Anniversary Edition on the stake and unit computers or will that eventually be pushed out to everyone? Thanks!

I haven't heard anything. I'd wait. You don't want to charge ahead and suddenly find you're on your own with a compatibility problem.

I don't know if the Anniversary Edition will be rolled out to the unit computers, but I did notice that the option to 'defer upgrades' is ticked and greyed out. To me that implies, at the moment, that the Church isn't wanting to go down that route.
If you manually upgrade, there's always the possibility that you might break something. Some computers upgraded manually to W10, before the official Church sanction, did have problems. So I would hold fast, until we have a definitive answer.

That's probably a system policy set by CHQ which will allow them to send us updates only after they've been approved by the development team. This is similar to how many large corporations handle updates.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.
