yes i most certainly do know what i'm talking about.

win10 works exactly the same way. 

microsoft has been working on the next version of win10 (and the
version *after* that) for quite a while.

windows insiders have been using and testing it for several months. i
don't remember when it was first available but it was around when fcu
came out.

it's expected to be released in a month or two to the first wave of
users, with most users getting it in the weeks and months that follow.

microsoft staggers the release so that any problems are caught early
and affect the fewest number of people. most of it has been ironed out
with insider builds, but as with any software, there are always bugs
that slip through.

it people can defer it if they want.

it people are also not relevant to this discussion since eric, you or
any of the other regulars in this newsgroup are not it people. they are
using their own personal systems and should always be running the most
up to date versions, if for no other reason, security.

unfortunately, you continue to spew about windows 10 even though you
don't actually use it.

you skipped the first sentence in that paragraph, intentionally
misleading readers.

here it is in its *entirety* :
  By far the biggest problem with Windows releases, in my humble
  opinion, was the length of each release. On average, a release took
  about three years from inception to completion but only about six to
  nine months of that time was spent developing
