So now that Windows 10 is no longer free, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Has anyone installed the final release yet?

Yes.  It introduces a lot of little fixes.  Makes Edge a bit more usable.  Messes with the Windows as a Service settings a lot, and clamps an somewhat more iron fist as to when you install patches (four weeks or else) and that you WILL reboot the computer to install the new features PROMPTLY or it'll reboot anyway.

I'm running 1607 enterprise. Pretty much what mark said (with more control over patching). IE is unstable on surface pro 4, but what else is new. MS basically breaks the goddamn sp4 with every other update.

OK
I left Windows 10 behind maybe 4 months ago.
Run either Server OS or Windows 7.
I know 2012R2 should be close. But the it's I interact with are grand.
I left because it seemed unstable to me.
Is it worth looking at again and the pain of a re-build and the hassle when I may giveven up again on what looks to be 2 or 3 failed attempts at a "one for all device" OS.
With the Xbox updating every other day (it's a game station not a security risk, unless it's tying into your full house), Windows mobile apparently dead (pity Nokia hardware is roughly know solid, wonder will they make a Nexus) will they ever go back to a server OS, client OS and the others necessary. (I didn't mention the Windows 10 IoT edition...baa humbug)

I haven't upgraded to the Anniversay Update yet, but have been running Windows 10 at home and at work since last year. Other than a few applications that I needed to update to work with Windows 10, I've had very few issues. The only real issue I've had, and don't know if it's a Windows 10 issue or with the HP laptop I have, is that when I hardwire my laptop, it doesn't always detect that the laptop is hardwired and stays on wireless. If I go to the network settings, it shows that the laptop is both hardwired and wireless and has an IP Address for both, but the laptop stays on the wireless connection. Then after about half an hour, it finally switches to the hardwired connection.

Dennis,

We ran into that with Lenovo & Dell laptops running WIN7 as well.  It was causing issues with Lync connectivity.  So we instructed all of our users "When on site manually turn off wireless".

On the laptop I'm using, it was running Windows 7 and I never had that issue with the laptop. I did an upgrade, instead of a clean install on the laptop, so that my be part of the reason I'm having an issue as well. Tried upgrading the drivers and it didn't help.

For what it's worth. Our supplier for McAfee product sent us this :

Currently, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is NOT compatible with certain versions of several Intel Security (McAfee) products.

 Affected Products:

Intel Security will be releasing relevant updates (Patches / Hotfixes) to introduce compatibility for Windows 10 Anniversary Update in future product releases.

Installing or upgrading to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update with incompatible Intel Security products has the potential for causing various negative performance issues including, and not limited to:
