Windows 10 Anniversary Update is finally released. The final build is 14393. On August 2nd, 2016, Microsoft released ISO files for offline installation and pushed the update via Windows Update servers. But you must note that if you install Windows 10 Anniversary Update and you don't like it or have any issues, you only have 10 days to uninstall it.
Earlier, with the release of Windows 10 build 10240 RTM and Windows 10 build 10586 "Threshold 2", the user had a choice to return to the previous version of Windows for up to 30 days after the upgrade. With Windows 10 version 1607 "Anniversary Update", this has changed. The user has 10 days to rollback the operating system.
According to Microsoft, they took this decision to minimize the rollback period, because they saw that most users would either rollback Windows 10 on their machines within the first couple of days or there were those who stayed with the new OS indefinitely. Which means Microsoft claims there were hardly any users who rolled back after more than 10 days.
After 10 days, Windows 10 Anniversary Update will delete the folder "Windows.old" to free up used disk space, leaving the user with no way to roll back to the installed and previously configured Windows version. (via Neowin).
Some users have already started suspecting that Microsoft is trying to increase the Windows 10 user base by reducing the rollback period.
What do you think about this move? Is the grace period of 10 days enough for you to evaluate and take a decision or it is too less? Tell us in the comments.
