Of course, Microsoft’s upgrading / Update Assistant doesn’t get the terminology right. I ran this on an Anniversary Update machine – version 1607, build 14393. It offers to upgrade me to version 15063. That’s version 1703, build 15063, but nevermind.
I think you’re crazy if you upgrade to Creators Update on a production machine. But if you really want to play with it, start here.
Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I’ll have more as I get a chance to step through the details, but the post this morning from Brian Lich is a decided step in the right direction.
That latter article duplicates some info that we’ve known for quite a while. See the info I posted earlier in 5 Fatal flaws that dog the new Windows 10.
