    It does. Just upgraded my wife's Toshiba laptop from Windows 7 Home Pro with no issues.

    Upgraded my SP3, but still pondering if I should upgrade my main desktop.

    I use Autodesk Maya and Unity 4.6 for work, and I haven't found too much info about how they run.

    Met a Microsoft Corporate person at the launch party in St. Louis today who said that October was going to be a very big month for hardware releases from Microsoft. He then went on to say that the new 950 phones that are coming have even better cameras than is being leaked out so far. He claims they are 40 megapixel cameras like the 1020 and are super fast. He said just expect better things than you are reading. He didn't say what else is coming but I could guess that it would be Surface Pro 4 and the new Band. He also confirmed a surface phone for next year. Windows 10 for Xbox should also be out by the end of the year and yes, it will stream to the phones also.

    I've heard some complaints about the New browser but i quite like the way it looks and the idea behind the writing on sites, cutting & Saving things of interest, its a bit thin on traditional browser features but once it matures I can actually see Microsoft with a competitive browser for once

    Open discussion can lead to disagreement in an agreeable fashion.

    I would think anything named "Tailgate Party" would stay light in tone.

    I'm sure its just me but I'm having problems downloading Windows 10 on my laptop. I was trying to install it on my secondary laptop which is an HP Stream 11. According to the "Get Windows 10" App, my system has met all the specifications for the upgrade except its not touchscreen.

    I have the requisite memory and a Flash drive of 64-gigs to download it as an ISO from the website. I did reserve an upgrade and under my Windows Update section it says.... "Windows 10 has been reserved and you'll be notified once the download is ready." I have already backed up my files so I'm ready to go for the upgrade.

    However, I've tried both the command line method and downloading it directly from the Microsoft website and both are dead-ends so far. When I ran the command prompt the first time it started downloading but then failed for some reason. Then I tried the website download which gave me the media installer but after an hour the upgrade was still showing 0% so I closed out of that.

    So my questions are thus:

    1. Am I doing something incorrectly?
    2. Is my laptop not compatible with Windows 10?
    3. Should I just wait for the reserved upgrade to start?
    4. And what is the estimated download and installation time for 10?

    I know this was a long post but I wanted to give you guys all the details to make it easier. Please let me know if you guys can help me solve this... Thank you.

    I was going to use an ISO from MSDN, but as it turns out I am out of DVDs (had one, but it was scratched and wouldn't work). So I redownloaded using the tool from insider.windows.com, creating the jump drive. I wanted a clean install, so I tried a reset in Win8 on my SP3, and it couldn't do the reset.

    I upgraded to Win10, and then did a reset, expecting it to go back to a fresh install of Win10, but no. It went back to 8.1. So now I'm running the Win10 upgrade again (right now downloading the updates). Ugh.

    Unless there's free beer, it's not a real tailgate party!

    The only giveaways at the Beachwood store other than the Insider shirts were free drinks and food. (OJ, water, and pop)

    The patch, unless that's been taken care of as well
    Patches have been rolling out for users for days now on the TP. I think the reason people are saying they got a patch is just because they didn't update before and everything is now coming at once.

    To add to that though, I imagine we will see a ton of patches released during the next week that will polish up some of the bits that users are having issues with. 😉

    Same at the store here in New Orleans. I was expecting it to be at least a little more going on than it was but, o well. At least I got that cool Windows 10 shirt. 😁

    We had T shirts that only went up to XL so i wont ever wear it. They did have some really good breakfast sandwiches, bagels, drinks, and a hash brown casserole. They took our business cards for a drawing but after 2 hours we left with nothing drawn yet. This was in St. Louis.

    Did they have white or black options for the shirts?

    Up here we did. I got a black one so I didn't stain it!

    Dammit, they gave us white but I have to go back up there to pick up tablets. I'm going to ask them if they have a black one. The logo just looks better on a black shirt.

    While work (doing windows phone development) caused me to miss the morning launch party, I will be going to the festivities at the Microsoft store in Dallas, TX once I leave work for the day.

    My main desktop still says "we're validating windows 10 for your PC...blah blah blah, notify me when ready" It hasn't done anything all day. According to @windows on twitter the update to Windows 10 could take weeks to show up LOL. People were outraged when they tweeted that out.

    Calm down. It's the first time for Microsoft to do this and it's a free upgrade. If they had CD's they would cost you money. Plus the shipping and all... Si just sit, relax and wait. It'll come to you

    I decided to go to the insider website. I downloaded the tool from there and Win10 is currently at 16% download progress. Hopefully it works properly and things come together.
