I've been on it since 3/30 on my home machine and since earlier this week on my work machines. No issues.

Has anyone installed this yet? My computer is nagging me.
I have installed using the manual install method before it was available from Windows Update. No problem at all but I didn't notice much changes. First boot after upgrade, NVIDIA Geforce Experience didn't run correctly also seemed to have problem with some hardware drivers but a reboot fixed everything.

Installed 1703 Update (Creator's Update) today. Took 20 minutes.
Thermal Monitoring failed upon first start after the update, but a reboot seemed to fix it, so no issues.
Cold boot time has improved a tiny bit, from 25 seconds to 22 seconds.

Upgraded to the Creator's version this weekend from standard Win 10 install. No issues. This was built as a Win 10 system, though, so I wasn't really expecting any problems.

Same here. I had to reset my install and installed that Creator's Update as well. No issues so far.

Okay, tonight I had unsaved work open on my desktop, walked away, and Windows discarded it and restarted to run an update after I had just picked "another time" like 4 times within a half hour.
I have but one advocate.

Set up 10 Enterprise on a new workstation today. Updates went surprisingly quick... Surprising because it's running 10 2015 and didn't update to 10 1067/Anniversary Edition. All of the drivers for the machine are incompatible with the OS.

The only way to update 10 Enterprise is to upgrade it by getting the license for 1067 through the volume licensing center.

I thought 10 was supposed to be the single solution end of this crap.

So annoyed.

For 6 months I've been holding onto Win 10 activation keys for all my home computers.
They've all been running fine and everyone is happy.
So, other than plain laziness, is there any good reason NOT to upgrade to Windows 10 now?
Jesus said, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body."[Matt 10:28] God can totally destroy us.

Jesus also said, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”[John 6:40] Eternal life is conditional.

His disciple John wrote, "Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. [1 John 5:12] Eternal life is optional.

You should be starting from 1703, not 1511 or 1607. Once you do that, the updates actually are much quicker. MS uses a cumulative model for 10, and only sends the binaries that are required. In other words, both a 'new' 1703 build and one that was updated in Aug will get the Sept cumulative update, but the one updated in Aug will download and apply a much smaller version than the 'new' 1703 build.

How are you imaging the machine? Most manufacturers will have a driver blob for you to use that will install everything. Don't just use Win7 drivers.

It was a custom built machine. It's long since resolved. I had to get a new MAK for 1067 (which was currentish at the time). Enterprise won't update from one build to another, which means if I want to start installing 1703, I'll have to get a new ISO (no biggie) and new MAK from from my corporate office. More of a pain than I want to deal with but them's the breaks.

The only think I don't care for in 10 is that every crash I've had so far has been irrecoverable. I used to have very good luck with going backwards or booting in through other means and recovering 7 crashes. I have had zero successes with recovering 10 crashes... But that's me...
