According to downloadcalculator.net, it will take 12.7 hours. :shock:

Let's see. With 4 hours of electricity a day (due to brownouts), it should only take us 3 days to get it. We had better plan on 4 or 5. [grin]

I wonder what the difference is between doing Windows 10 via the IBM app and letting Windows 7 do it?

Maybe the IBM app will filter out a lot of the additional rubbish normally downloaded with W10. That would be a nice bonus.

Letting it happen through the IBM Endpoint Manager (BigFix) will install the official clerk/church image of the OS.

:!: Just heard from the GSC that the page on the Help Center went up prematurely. It is recommended at this time to wait to update and await further instructions. :!:

Premature? The page was posted on the 8th June!

One has to debate the purpose of upgrading. Sure, it's nice to have the latest, but if everyone is comfortable with 7, why change? Seems like a invite to more trouble.

Edit: End of security patches for Win7 is January 14, 2020. If the computer is not going to be replaced before then, it would be a good idea to upgrade. So if your computer is 1.5 years old or less, then it probably would be a good idea.
