Well, we need some firewood here :bigsmile:
Did you know that Microsoft have resurrected the updates for Windows 10 upgrade readyness? Sure have, KB2952664 for Windows 7 and KB2952664 for Windows 8.1, described as:
Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7/8 -- This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. These diagnostics help determine whether compatibility issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed. This update will help Microsoft and its partners ensure compatibility for customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system.
It only means that Microsoft will be able to record data from Windows 7 and 8.1 systems though, and a Microsoft representative downplayed the meaning of this to BetaNews:
There is no Get Windows 10 or upgrade functionality contained in this update. This KB article is related to the Windows Update and the appraiser systems that enables us to continue to deliver servicing updates to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 devices, as well as ensure device and application compatibility.
Still, they are both a prerequisite for KB3035583 which displays the upgrade to Windows 10 nag and considering the story and Microsoft's prior merits...
