POLL RESULT - Is Windows 10 a Go or No Go based on build 10162?

POLL RESULT - Is Windows 10 a Go or No Go based on build 10162?

Author's Note

I goofed.  When I prepared this poll results summary I flipped everything upside down. I misread the results as being slightly positive for launching Windows 10 based on build 10162 and it should have actually been a result of No Go with the negatives just outweighing the positives.

My apologies for the error.  So take everything in the article below and reverse it.

Bottom line is the No Go for launch had the advantage by about 14% (65 votes).

Thanks to everyone who pointed out the error to me.

Original post follows:

Last week after the release of three Windows 10 builds the week before we wanted to know your thoughts on the readiness of Windows 10 for RTM and its General Availability based on the quality of build 10162.

Since we asked this question we received one additional desktop build last week, 10166, while not significantly changed from 10162 it is proving, in my experience, to be more stable than 10162. This is due ot the continued bug smashing efforts of the Windows team.

In fact, I decided to install 10166 on my wife's PC and that is not an action I take lightly. She likes her stability on the computer but so far she has not blinked an eye usage wise so far.

For you all the margin in giving Windows 10 a go based on build 10162 was just 65 votes or 14% of the total number of votes.

As you read the comments on last weeks poll and across social media the experience with Windows 10 build 10162 varies widely.

When we are this close to RTM, which is now expected this week during Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference, I think that margin of approval should be much higher.

One thing to take away is that Windows is now going to offered as a service (WaaS) and that means Microsoft will have the ability and plan on updating the OS on a regular basis so issues that are identified can be tweaked and repaired.
