    Still it looks to be close to success or dismal failure.
    I usually wait several months but thought I'd try it

    Some cool new features in 1903.

    I'll give it a go as well - on a VM and if that works easily I'll do it on some other machines.

    4 hours to download or 4 hours to update?

    About 4.5hrs total. Download was fairly quick.
    It's supposed to have a test box or virtual area in it.
    So far not noticed much. But only did a couple of tests. Think u have to disconnect external drives before doing it

    Yes it is the sandbox function that for me is attractive. I typically use a VM when trying out new stuff. The sandbox feature will simplify things.

    you'll also need to be using win 10 pro for the virtual sandybox.

    also imo its more of a resource hog. mine is slower so had to switch off some performane graphics etc to get back to fast .. other thsn that it seems good

    So I upgraded so far two win10 instances - one a VM and the other a main machine. Upgrades worked out fine. Did not time it but did not seem unduly long as compared to other major revisions.

    The screens (e.g. start screen) have been tidied up. Much neater and more organised.

    The sandbox feature works brilliantly. As expected it did not work in the VM due to double virtualisation. On the main machine a sandbox instance boots up fast and runs just as fast as the main machine. Network speed is depicted at 10gb (speed connection to main machine) with network protected fully from the LAN (both ways). This can explicitly be defeated by turning on network discover and file sharing. So all good.

    Only basic apps provided (Internet explorer and so forth) but fine for the purpose. I may try find a way of changing the default sandbox environment (for instance to include Chrome). Closing the sandbox instance deletes any data and apps created in that session.

    I can imagine using the sandbox often.

    Got a scan with Spyware Expert running, not done one for ages. I bet it finds some naughty stuff that's sneaked in, trojans and worms and the like, it usually does and it gets rid of them too.
