I guess we sit and wait
I must say, I'm amazed by just how compatible Windows 10 9926 is with older hardware, and even some 16 bit software, and I have lots of both!
My main PC, a homemade desktop 10 years old, runs GREAT with Windows 10 TP, 32 bit or 64 bit. It even picked up my Epson printer without me having to find my Epson driver disk and install the drivers.
I also installed the 32 bit ver. on a little HP laptop about five or six years old and that too is running just great!
It seems like MS is getting their act together on writing OS's that will load on just about anything. And with the world economy almost in the toilet, that's a good thing, because a lot of folks, like me, just can't afford to go out and buy a new computer for every new OS.
What would be really the nuts, would be an OS like Windows 10, that would install as an upgrade to Windows XP, without destroying a person's programs and data.
That's how I got from Windows 98 to Windows XP, many years ago.
I'm still waiting for that Next Big Thing, that I heard would be here in February. We've only got about 13 hours to go and February 2015 goes into the history books. So MS needs to get a move on!
Y'all have a great day, and Happy Computing!

What I waiting on is what Microsoft definition is life time of Device.
I would like Microsoft to define lifetime of a device.
I also want to find out before I waste my time if Microsoft windows 10 will be a subscription service or not. Even some lawyers are telling businesses not to upgrade to 10 until Microsoft clarifies licensing terms.
Be wary of upgrading to Windows 10 as a Service, lawyers warn businesses
In that article, it even says
Some of that statement above is from a lawyer. It has me concerned.“We’ll deliver new features when they’re ready, not waiting for the next major release. We think of Windows as a Service,” Myerson writes. This certainly sounds like Microsoft is marketing Windows 10 as a subscription-based service - to consumers at least.
I edited my statement above to be more precise.
