Please don't take this wrong, but is that a real loss?
I look in Seven Forums and 75% the posts are about BSOD's. Of course my last Win7 BSOD was in 2012 when I was experimenting with so called optimization software, but then I just re- imaged.
Only for the people trying to stay on W7. I have one box on XP it runs the program I use it for 24/7 it is not broke yet. I have 2 boxes on W7 one cannot be upgraded to W10 due to no WMC that box is only used with that program the other W7 box is for the wife she can put anything she wants most of her computing time is now on Android. I have one Lappy on W10 that is mine to do as I please it looks like it will stay with W10 when it goes RTM. As far as OS I will use the one that works with what I am doing.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit / Ubuntu & Windows 8.1 in Hyper-V
I loved Win 7 when it came out(specially when the taskbar became the superbar) but glad I'll be able upgrade it to 10, so I can sync both my desktop and laptop even more(Win 7 has OneDrive and OneNote desktop too) so I can share files & changes, between the two, when I'm away with the laptiop.

Boot menu now "Windows 10" I have a triple boot system (7/8.1/10). I notice since the new Win 10 "Preview" version, my OS selection menu now shows "Windows 10" instead of the Win 10 Preview it used to show.
Win 10 a "refresh" or an "upgrade" from Win 7 and Win 8? I have been under the impression that Win 10 may be like an upgrade so you don't have to re-install all your desktop programs. If it is a "refresh" what a pain :(
If it is an upgrade will it kill Windows Media Center or might it actually survive...
Searching not working for "Windows Update", "Sound", etc. I've installed Build 10041 and upgrade to 10049 three times now, each time I was able to do a search for Windows Update or Sound which would show me the correct results but this time, I'm not getting the right results. In the past I would do a Reset...
