While not officially called a service pack it is the equivalent of one. It was released today

If they aren't calling it a service pack then Win 10 is still in the beta stage where users do the beta testing.

It looks like Microsoft are going to update your compatable machine.
However, if you don't like it, you have 31 days to revert back.
Settings> update and security> recovery and uninstall windows 10

That was the first thing I got rid of when I bought my new HP laptop with Win10 on it.  All the trialware and adware went away immediately, and I turned off as much "phone home" BS as I could find.  Helped with performance, too.

Another performance boost was to spend the $100 and upgrade to Win10 Pro.  I need virtual machines, and VMWare & Virtualbox won't run on the Home edition.

Believe it or not, I actually like Win10 Pro! But I still run Linux Mint in a VM on it as well.  Shocked Grin

Several years ago HP added an app for their store when I installed the printer driver. No big deal, I just don't click on it. MS app  should be the same.

Threshold 2 changes lasted only a few seconds, after restart/reboot,
before Classic Shell automatic update/config removed!
http://www.classicshell.net

NEXT Microsoft Windows 10 update is already beyond planning stage, code name: Redstone 1
Tentative release date is late 2Q 2016 (June 2016).
=====
Classic Shell works on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and their server counterparts (Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016).
Both 32 and 64-bit versions are supported. The same installer works for all versions.
Note: Windows RT is not supported.

I installed the update. They call it Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.3) The only problems I've noticed so far are with an old photo editing program, and sound card setting with digital modes had to be reset.  With the photo editor, I get errors with the registration and again when entering the registration key. This program worked fine with the original Win 10. But I can live without the program, have another one I'll get used to. Just hope I don't find problems with other programs or drivers. I'll check the changes I made with Win 10 privacy issues and make sure they are still in place.

I think you can turn that off.

This is the reason I avoid pointless upgrades.  Win10 brings almost nothing new to the table and your now your using a free OS.  So you now have to bend over when MS says to and there is nothing you can do about it.

I installed service pack on XYL's Asus laptop and it installed without any issues. It started life 3 years ago as a Win 7 PC and I upgraded BIOS and some drivers before I took it to 10 a few months ago without a hitch either. Some like MJR are afraid of change or things they do not understand.

I run Oracle's Virtual Box (ver 5) on Win 10 Home (64 bit), no problem at all.
