Be aware that this took me all of 4hrs to download/install using a 100Mb download link.
So using a laptop use your power brick to ensure no power drops!
First impressions are that this is now a slick operating system very responsive using firefox browser.

Brian, the link you posted returns "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found."  :(

I agree that Windows 10 is a very good system, but even better if you uninstall, turn off or disable all the unneccessary "apps" and use open source software like Firefox, etc.  8)

I installed 1903 yesterday on a 10 year old laptop (2GB memory + SSD).
The download and install took about three hours. No issues during install, and it runs very well for simple tasks like web browsing.

Hi. Thanks for the information. I updated from Windows7 to W10 ?when. System shows I have Version 1803 installed 17/05/2108. Do I await to be updated or advance rapidly?
Seem to receive many regular updates and nothing I require really alters (apart from things disappearing!). Cheers.

I was also on 1803 having gone the same update path Windows 7 to Windows 10.
As I said in my original post be aware this update takes time!
 Good luck
