Windows 10  - 
 
I'm a Windows Insider so I have the RTM (build 10240) Windows 10 install that I've had all along since the original Preview. I also have 3 other Windows 8.1 computers that have Windows 10 reservations. So far not a single one of them has offered me the upgrade. All 3 are logged into the same Microsoft Account that I use for Windows Insiders.

What happened to "Insiders would be the first to get the upgrade?"

I got my Plex Server to upgrade, but only by using the Media Creation Tool. Seems that may be what I have to do with the remaining 3 machines since Windows Updates doesn't seem like it's going to fly.

Yep +Rich Woods.

What I found says the WINDOWS.~BT folder is (as I think we all already knew) is where the Windows installation files get downloaded to. Anyone doing a Windows 10 Upgrade will get this folder (actually this isn't just specific to 10 upgrades). If you run the system files cleaner afterwards with all boxes checked this gets deleted along with windows.old

If you upgrade using the Media Creation Tool you will also get the Windows.~WS folder. I don't know if you get this when upgrading via other methods, but I've never seen it before. Anyways the article says this contains the necessary holes to roll back the upgrade should it fail or other need to be rolled back. This folder does not automatically get deleted during the system files cleanup because once you delete it a rollback is impossible. But you can manually delete it once you're certain you won't need to rollback.

Has anyone here even seen a Wifi enabled USB Flash drive that can do both simultaneously? The SanDisk Connect cannot. If you plug the drive into USB the Wifi shuts off.

An 02 or AT&T broadband sim dongle with a MicroSD slot comes to mind. Wireless communication with storage.

Windows 10 is already available to download from Microsoft's software download site. First you download the Media Creation Tool, then run the tool.
You will be asked what you want to download:
First you choose what version (i.e. Pro, Home, etc.)
Then you select to download to either a USB drive or an .ISO file.
Lastly you choose to download for 32 Bit, 64 Bit or both.
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Also, you can use this tool to perform an upgrade from 7 or 8.1 if you want. This way you won't have to wait for Windows Update to offer the upgrade to you.
P.S. You won't need a key to do the upgrade.
