    According to Microsoft:
    . We’re deciding how long to let each build stay with Windows Insiders so you can really exercise them and send feedback on any problems that you’re hitting. I know many of you have said you’d love daily builds, but it is actually important sometimes to get a few days on a build so that all of the code that does deferred work (like OneDrive sync, search indexing, background updating, etc.) can run and we can get feedback and error reports.
    Yeah, just got notification few minutes ago, trying to download before other couple of million start doing it too.
    Too late. This is what I hate about living in Europe, we get our updates so "Late"(our time).

    My GWX has been doing some downloading too I've seen in event viewer. If you need a Custom View to import to see what it does daily(if you still have a Win8.1 or Win 7 machine) go to this post from me and download it

    Was probably something "fishy" with it. That's why so many geeks have cats you know, to eat the phishing mails.
