It's almost here. A good description is available here: Windows 10 Fall Update.

Some cosmetic changes, some under the hood changes. 

Thoughts?

excited just to have the start menu changes... the 512 limit has really been quite a frustration - Although not enough that i have stepped into third party solutions...

I haven't received it yet but Microsoft started distributing this update now: "First Major Update for Windows 10 Available Today".

I think for consumers there are lots of small things (although the blog post seems to put lots of emphasis on enterprise computing) but I am keen on memory compression and fine tuned Start menu.

Are they going to do anything about that stupid auto-update? Right now that is the only thing I care about.

This update brings a lot of changes that will be visible to all users. I don't select from the start menu so the real estate changes makes no difference to me. But the memory compression is an another excellent reason for upgrading from older versions of Windows if you have limited RAM.

I'm looking forward to:
A simplified upgrade process (don't have to go back to Windows 7 or 8) and a visible activation Product Key in settings.
A more consistent interface including context menus, power menu, task bar, window bars and logo match profile colour scheme, new icons, automatic resizing of adjacent snapped windows.

Or "Windows 10 (Multiple Editions), Version 1511 (x64) - DVD (English-United Kingdom)" if you want it to spell things like "customise" correctly :)

haven't got the update yet myself, the staggered release method microsoft use now can be a tad frustrating..

Seen reports that i can be obtained using the media creation tool update method, but thats alot of effort compared to waiting a little more...

Update complete (in a VM). The first thing I noticed is that my timezone has set itself to Eastern Australia...

The update servers seem to be struggling as there are many reports of updates that failed. Had a fail here.

Downloaded the Media Creation Tool and successfully updated two installations here.

If you have System Restore ON, don't forget to re-set it as these updates turn it off. The default progs can get changed as well e.g Edge being pushed. These things bother me as I have done nine win 10 installs for others and next time they want help I won't have a Restore fallback. No idea why MS would not stick to what is there.
