I'm not being impatient or anything, but I had the new Windows 10 logo pop up on my desktop months ago. So I duly filled out the form with the promise of getting an email notification when ready.

So presumably I'm not ready for it yet?

Everyone who preregistered is in a queue. You'll be notified when it's your turn, or alternatively

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

When it is ready, you should get a blue popup graphic from the windows 10 taskbar icon (the one next to the clock).

The W10 app still tells me that I will be notified when its ready.  However ran a couple of updates (in the normal update window) and suddenly W10 is showing in that list as an available update ready to download.  Back to the W10 app and still saying it will notify me...huh?  I didn't have time to see if I could run the update last night, but outward appearances is that I can run the upgrade through the normal update process.

Yeah, I used the direct download route last night.  Quick, easy and painless.
