I think this is great as a way of deployment but I also foresee a lot of bricked installs when something goes wrong during installation.

MS have dealt with this sucessfully. When the 8.1 update for windows phone came out there was a 20% of the phones by other OEMS (not Nokia) that didn't install the update and failed at around 50% of the procedure. The phones restarted to windows phone 8 without the loss of any data. If the installation failed, ms has already foresaw that and implemented a restore changes feature

Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.

It will not update to the new OS unless we tell it to, right?

Possibly. If you have your update settings to download and install automatically i would assume it would update itself. I always leave mine to manual. I would prefer to know what its going to install and download rather than it do its own thing.

Mine is set to manual too, but I'm sure that they ~could~ push whatever they want to anyways.
I know that they're keen on getting everyone on board the Win-10 train, but I want to be the one to make the move at my own pace.

This sounds great and I'm excited about this ability, but what happens if I want to completely reinstall Windows or reset it to factory settings after I install Windows 10? A reinstall would require me to install 8.1 first and then 10, right? A simple reset would probably just act like a fresh install of Windows 10, I assume.

I'm sure you could still download an ISO off their website. Create a bootable stick and reinstall completely again if you want nothing to do with the previous OS. That's what i plan on doing. I'll just make a note of all my programs i have now and move my games to my external drive then upgrade, reinstall, then get everything back. Not much work tbh

I would highly doubt it. I presume it would be listed as optional as it is not a critical update.

I'm surprised they are not at RC versions at this point. Just two weeks ago, the changed the start menu using a different programming. From what I have read, a great many people do not like the change.
