Will you upgrade early to the Windows 10 Creators Update or wait until it is your turn in the roll out?


After eight months, 28 development builds, and three cumulative updates the Windows 10 Creators Update for PCs will soon become available to current Windows 10 users.

The official roll out begins on the April 2017 Patch Tuesday, the 11th of April, and some advanced users will have even earlier access to it before then however, the roll out is planned to take several months.

So that means you will need to make a conscious effort to go grab the update early and force your system to upgrade or wait until it is your systems turn to become eligible for the third major feature update of Windows 10.

Where do you stand on this upgrade cycle?

Will you go download it immediately or wait for your window to open up?

I'd actually do the beta testing but I really dread having to reinstall when upgrades fail or stuff starts to break because of build to build to build. My last reinstall was because of two reasons. I wanted to install a larger SSD as my system drive. Originally I cloned from my previous drive and Windows 8.1 worked fine. I also wanted to upgrade to Windows 10, but upgrading landed me into an unstable and unresponsive WIndows 10 environment even with my original drive. After trying to do this with major milestone builds and even the first final version of 10, I realized that the only way was to do a clean install. Since then, I only take rtm's.

Both sound like very solid approaches.

I've go 2 machines on insider fast ring, 1 on the slow ring, and 2 on the release preview ring. I've still got one system on W8.1. All of my machines that are in active use are already on the creators update -- so the general availability dates don't matter too much to me.

After GA I will leave one machine on the fast ring for RS3, and I'll put all the other machines on release preview.

Laptop first, easiest to roll back, then main desktops after a week.
