My O&O ShutUp10 settings right after the "upgrade":

I had almost everything green before.  Only things not thrown to green were:  Windows Defender disabled, Access to local language for browsers disabled, and a couple of the Windows Update items.  All the rest, most notably membership in spynet, telemetry, and synchronization, were flipped to red by the "upgrade".

 

Also, all Apps were restored, even though I had removed / de-provisioned them every way I know how.  This included Cortana.

 

OneDrive was restored and re-enabled.

 

A large number of scheduled operations were restored in the Task Scheduler.

 

A bunch of services I had disabled were re-enabled.

By the way, some ridiculous Microsoft employee named Aul eMailed a note claiming "This desktop update is packed with nearly 200 new capabilities".  I'm thinking he's counting each pixel.

 

 

 

Hello,

As you might have already heard, we just released a major Windows update to the world. This desktop update is packed with nearly 200 new capabilities, many of which were developed directly as a result of feedback from Insiders like you. Check out Terry Myerson's blog for more details — and thanks, as always, for your feedback.

On a related note, we recently unveiled a range of exciting new devices, all built to make the most of Windows 10.

Well Gabe Aul referencing Terry Myerson is not like "news". :no:
 
BUT on the actual Terry Myerson blog there is a statement that sounds a bit (too much) bold:
http://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2015/11/12/first-major-update-for-windows-10-available-today/?OCID=WIP_r_Body_Blog_LatestPC
 

Experience improvements in this update include:

  • Performance in everyday tasks, such as boot time now nearly 30% faster than Windows 7 on the same device.

 

Queer that you didn't notice such a dramatic speed improvement. :unsure:

Booting the computer is not a task.

 

The operating system is there to facilitate tasks, not be one.

Booting the computer is not a task.

 

The operating system is there to facilitate tasks, not be one.

Well, it greatly depends on the use of a computer.

My desktop is almost never booted or rebooted, as an example, and when for some reasons I switch it off, what I normally do next time/next day is to switch it on and go get a coffee while it boots (not that it is anyway slow, but in my use booting time is totally irrelevant).

Still my laptop is booted only "on demand" and when I use it I want to have it booted up quickly, in this case it becomes a task, and should it be slow booting it would be very annoying.

 

The statement by Terry Myerson, however, makes no sense anyway. :no:

 

The update is for Windows 10 so it might be of relevance the faster booting when compared to the previous Windows 10 version.

 

I mean, it is entirely possible :unsure: that 10240 was ALREADY(say) 29% faster than 7 on the same device :w00t:, which would leave less than 1% bettering for 10586 release (nothing to be actually worth a mention, let alone as first one of the three main points listed) and conversely, provided that any machine actually suited for Windows 7 or later normally boots (or should boot) in under a minute, it would mean *like* half a second in practice. :whistle:

Well of course, there's really not any substance being added to Windows 10.  That seemed pretty obvious already.  Thus the marketers have to focus on what it does better than "old reliable", which folks are hanging on to.

 

The "in-place upgrade" is strictly to cause disruption and buzz, because as every evil marketer knows, free press is good press.

Re-enables powercfg Wake Settings:

Although it seems those particular settings being changed by updates goes back to Windows 7.

Well I managed to upgrade from an older build (really old) last night to 10586, however, the only thing good I can say is the upgrade worked smoothly using the ISO. I can not say the same for the one I attempted to get via Windows Update. I hate upgrades I prefer to do clean installs.

I hate upgrades I prefer to do clean installs.

 

And THAT is exactly what's worst about Microsoft's present scheme.

 

It's as though they've taken everything about Windows that's ever been weak and decided that's what needs to be the central focus of Windows 10:

 

  • Toy apps (Windows Live Gallery, Gadgets, etc.)
  • OS upgrades (what person in their right mind thinks such a system could ever be stable?)
  • Web development philosophies
  • Privacy problems and malware
  • Reinstalling the OS every few months

 

It's nothing less than a severe case of cranial-rectalitis.

Well I found my first piece of good news: it looks like you can do a clean install after and upgrade!

LOL, and the dialog is presented in the Windows 7-like WinRE environment complete with (mostly) rounded corners.  Long live Aero!

I created the boot image using Windows Server 08 R2. Could that have anything to do with it?

I don't know about Win 10, but I've seen Win 8 use old style windows in the WinRE environment.  The old Win 7-era Task Manager is in there as well, and that still works fine to this day in Win 10.

 

OK, just to test, I just booted into the WinRE environment in Win 10 build 10586.  Windows still have rounded corners and look like Windows Basic mode.  Not Aero Glass like what you showed.  You could be right.
