I guess they want to weed out all the builds before (August 2) Anniversary Update

I'm confused

10240
10586
Are versions right? Why an update to 10240? Isn't 10586 an newer version? Why the refresh on the first post?

Why does W10 need a clean install every time? Why are personal settings not retained?

Please, no responses that cause debate, just want to know why.

Yup, unfortunately upgrade process is messy. All your programs and documents will be there but all the services and tweaks you turned off/on will be reset, lots of redundant registry keys, logs, hidden files/folders will appear here and there. Plus, those giant windows.old and other folders that occupy gigabytes of memory which you have to clean afterwards. Real pain in the ass for ssd users but it's inevitable.

One of my clients asked why their Win 10 upgrade was so buggy, and why I wanted to replace with a fresh load. In trying to explain, I realized that we had not really seen any "Upgrade" issues since Windows XP era (2002). Think about it.

Windows 3.1 to 95 really didn't happen much, and the two OSes were different enough that people just did a fresh load.

From 95 to 98, an upgrade was a mess. Any IT worth his salt knew to do a fresh load.

No one tried to migrate people to Windows ME intentionally. Windows 2000 was really only seen in a corporate environment, and IT guys knew to do a fresh load.

When XP hit, many people tried "upgrades", but it caused so much issue that they almost always went back for a clean slate, even more so after SP2 hit. There was really no point. Programs didn't migrate with it: why even bother?

Vista was like ME, and no one really pushed their clients to purchase an Upgrade version to migrate. By the time Win7 hit, people either bought new machines with Win7 on them already, or sat tight with their XP installs, and as a VAR, we could still get WinXP almost a year after 7's release.

Once 8 hit, again, no one recommended their clients migrate that way. Some purchased PCs with it already installed, but we had no problem (and still really don't, even now), getting a PC with Windows 7 Pro, so we just got Win7 for them, and ignored 8 in a business environment.

Win 10 changes everything. It's a Free Upgrade, which means that the businesses don't have to justify purchasing the software to upgrade, and since M$ did their shady "Shoot me now or Shoot me later" upgrade (and you wonder why "millions have already moved to Wonderful Windows 10!!), a lot of IT people were left out of the loop, and upgrades "just happened".

It's not a case of "Why does Windows 10 not do a good in-place upgrade?". The point is that Windows has never done a good job of an in-place upgrade: so many people have not really seen (or don't remember) what happens to an OS when you try to "upgrade". Windows 10 is just bringing the nightmare back to the front again.

Can someone direct me at a compiled ISO for Redstone release so I can save it in case I need to reinstall. Don't like the ESD "decrypted" version because it's behaving strange.

What exactly is the difference between international and US English? I think I had international once and it seemed to be defaulting to British english. Is that it? I kinda prefer US spelling of things :p

No difference except default display language and a small bundle of pre-installed locales, I guess...
Either way - you can always install any MUI from locale settings menu. That's one of the things I really like about W10.

I agree with @Mussels I had issues too. When you change language some stuff in services and group policy gets messed up and left untranslated.

It's so annoying you can't have just keyboard set to your language and EVERYTHING else to english. Stupid thing keeps on translating shit to my language and it looks so stupid. Entire OS in English and all the Metro apps are in Slovene. This pisses me off so hard.
If I force English US and slovenian keyboard, then I'm getting the stupid language selection bar in taskbar all the frigging time and that pisses me off even more.
