    Someone complaining about insider builds being unfinished, and blaming Dona.

    nice reply from another member.
    Wow - why are you on the WindowsInsiders Fast again?*

    First - calling Dona out is about as ignorant as it gets. She is the FACE of the Insiders program. A coder, as she has stated, great speaker, etc ... but the FACE of the Insiders.*

    Second - You are probably in the 'cry baby' group that demands faster releases and then post comments like this when there are problems.

    Third - Go to the slow ring - it is meant for people like you. Or leave all together.

    Lastly, and for the record, I NEVER respond to this crap online - typically a waste of time - but yours I got a logon and made the effort.*

    Arghh

    Well the LAN update works (to well)

    Disconnected the Internet from the workshop so it was only using the LAN, Did a fresh install of the Previous Build 15042 o a different Computer, then changed it over to Insider Builds Fast, thinking its going to take a day or so to kick in-- NOPE, try a minute or two.

    Within a few moments it started pulling the latest build from 15046 that was just done. Then it stopped, Hmmm OK reconnect the internet, still didn't go any further, so OK dive into the Reg, alter the settings to not use UUP, check updates again, and OOPS!!

    Two copies now coming through, same build --let them finish, now I have a install.esd File of 2.8 GB & a copy of the download directory from the other PC 7.18 GB

    Bugger

    Anyone's guess which one is going to install Just rebooting now.

    Really makes me wonder about some of the people at Microsoft. One guy had problems with the latest insider build.

    I got stuck in a continuous trying to repair PC loop that did not work, I finally chose going back to previous version of windows which worked. *I had to newest version of insider now I am back 15042
    And a forum Moderator replies

    For us to make sure that we will provide you the correct information, we would like know which Build of Windows 10 that experienced the issue you have mentioned.
    REALLY .

    Well lets work it out. The newest Build as of writing is 15046, the previous was 15042 ------OMG rocket science to figure out which build the guy was on

    15048 downloading now. Let's hope this goes better for me than 15046. I couldn't get past 49% download on one machine, even after leaving it overnight.

    Well that was about the smoothest install I've seen for a while. The download was quick, and it took less than 45 mins from initial restart to the desktop. Interesting to see the watermark is back.

    Now to see how it goes on the other two PCs.

    Another two very smooth installs. The VM hung a bit on "downloading 99%", but apart from that it was excellent. It looks like there might have been some peer-to peer going on, but there was not enough differentiation to be sure. The data was about 2gb, 1.4gb and 958mb.

    Next time I'll turn off the peer-to-peer and see if the numbers match more closely.

    All bug fixes, not surprisingly. We are revving up to the RTM next month. Still some known issues which could be a bit of a show-stopper if they affect you.
