When do new software versions roll out for OEM consumers?

Hi, all:

 

I noticed that some folks are receiving the new GUI (with new software version, too?) with their routine updates these days.

And others have specifically gone out to the Australian servers for the 2010 package.

 

My system runs an OEM package from Dell purchased 12/2009, rather than a "boxed"/standalone suite.

Currently running:

SC 9.15.160

VS 13.15.113

PF/AS/PC 10.15.106

 

Since my subscription is renewed through 04/2011, I assume I will be offered package updates to the new versions at some point?

 

Will it come in as a routine update (perhaps requiring at least a reboot to fully install), or will it require a formal uninstall old/clean/reinstall new?

 

Thanks!

 

MM

    There's no knowing when Dell will release their 2010 version as this is entirely up to them.  In the past they haven't been too far behind the direct customers.   It is starting to be released, albeit slowly, later this week.

    The new GUI comes with the new product - it's totally different from the old one.

     

    Yes, if you get your protection from your ISP or computer maker such as Comcast, Dell, AOL etc. etc. it's their decision when to release it as they often repackage it.

    You wont get any satisfaction from Dell (or any ISP/OEM provider for that matter) - this has been hashed out in the forums over the years and the answer is always the same.   They says it's up to McAfee   They will get the new version along with everyone else and it will happen when it happens, then they re-label it as Dell/McAfee or whatever, which often seems to take an inordinately long time, and sometimes bits and pieces are removed, but not always.  We can't say when all this will happen as we simply do not know.

     

    Your subscription that you just paid for is what matters....anyone with a valid subscription will get the upgrade,.... when it happens.
