I was looking at the upgrade features of this next OS .
One of the things they said was the following. Don't understand what anything of Windows 10 has to do with Apple.

"Adds support for media-free installation of Windows 10 Creators Update using boot camp".

Wonder what this means sure don't want nothing of Windows in my Apple.

I have no idea Sharkky.... Did you go to the apple update on the dock to find this?   Called the App Store...?   All you do to update is click on Cierra OS Update.....   has nothing to do with Windows anything...........  Be very careful where you go and what you get...

All this Apple update does is makes it possible to install the Windows 10 Creators Update in the Boot Camp virtualization environment. In other words, it lets you install and run Windows 10 CU on top of MacOS.

I don't see any really good reasons to do this other than really needing a piece of software that is not available for Mac. This could include games.

You can also do the opposite -- run Mac OS on Windows using VirtualBox. Considering that both MS and Apple own each other's stock, anything goes.

 My wife is a consultant and owns a MacBook Pro. When she goes to a business where the software is Windows based she can flip her Mac to a ParallelWindows OS, join their VMS network and use their software. Parallel Windows OS is a pricey download but it gets the job done for her. It is sort of a side by side OS, thus the name Parallel. I'm not an expert at it but that's the way it was explained to me. Boot Camp is an Apple utility on your Mac that lets you install Windows, it takes you right through the installation, supposed to be simple. Never tried it, don't want to....

@ Queen Farm 
On the app page it shows where Sierra is a free upgrade, goes on to tell all about it, the features, etc.
When they mentioned Creators 10 that's when I decided I best stand pat on Yosemite I don't want nothing to do with Creators 10 bull****
that's what I'm fighting on the windows 10 laptops I got that I constantly delete.

Somebody told me if I got rid of Safari browser and put in Google Chrome I wouldn't have the trouble with having to sign into QVC when I delete history
Safari supposedly picks and chooses what it thinks is safe to autofill in username and passwords and I guess it thinks the QVC groups needs to be signed in every time after a history deletion.

All that other stuff is over my head. Maybe I'll upgrade when they come up with the next OS in Mac.
When I bought this apple in Dec the tech told me not to upgrade to Sierra because it was "buggy". I just figured by now bugs were gone
I don't want any Windows stuff to contaminate my Apple

Sharkky,  You won't go wrong....  I wanted you to know that I have a few (gotten off the Internet)   apps.  on my Mac that aren't Apple.  One is Adobe Reader..... I am not sure about that but I know that Gerald told me what I need to have and where to get it safely,,,,, and I did.  This was 5 years ago.... I kept some of the notes but not all.  There are a few more that I use and are very good....  They aren't harmful to the Mac at all... as long as you go to the right place to get them and know what you are doing....  I didn't but had the BEST  Helper there is to tell me....
