"In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss", Cable added.

There'll be no nag messages (hooray!) and so users will need to check Windows Update to see if it's even available - don't mistake it for the Patch Tuesday updates. You won't get bugged to install it, you won't be able to download it via Windows 10, no, nada.
