The final build of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is build 14393. The update, which provides a range of new features and improvements, represents Microsoft's last big push to get Windows 7 and 8.1 users to upgrade to Windows 10.

The update is available right now to those who have opted in to the Windows Insider program, and it will be pushed out to Windows 10 users on the current branch on August 2. The free upgrade offer from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10, however, ends on July 29, leaving Microsoft hoping that the promise of the new update will be enough to get people to make the switch.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt many Windows 7/8 users here who haven't upgraded yet will be wooed by this new update.

If you're still running Windows XP, you're irresponsible and you should update to 7/8/10 or Linux immediately.

Windows XP today, even without "support", is no more likely to get malware or a virus than a Windows 7/8 machine that received security updates yesterday.
I cleaned more browser hijackers, advertising popups, and other viruses off of friends' 7/8/8.1 computers this week than my XP machines have ever gotten in the last 10+ years, combined!
The idea that upgrade/update = security is a fallacy.
