    Win 10 Pro x64

    If I decided to adopt 9 later on, it will not replace my 8.1. It will go on a separate SSD as dual boot.

    the answer to the question is an easy one for me... its a big yes.

    BUT..

    its a whole new question as to weather I will stick with it or not.

    Same here. Along with my W8.1 Pro disk, I will also keep my W7 disk at least until support for either of them runs out. My PC is a full tower so I have plenty of room for expansion.

    W10 Insider + Linux

    Eye candy notwithstanding, new system better work even better than previous. Easier driver handling, DirectX 12 promises to be better than ever. Safeties built in only right places, unlike now when it's applied all across the board, where is needed or not. Even more efficient memory handling would be appreciated (it's definitively better now than in Win7). Some AI in file storage so they would not all be piled up in C: drive and at least easier to decide where to store them. That hasn't changed since the Win 95. There are changes coming to hardware so that has to be addressed too. DDR4 Ram is coming up soon, it will have more pipelines and should be able to be used by OS or there would be no improvement on the SW side if it's not handled properly. CPUs and GPUs are getting more and more new commands and if left only to SW developers we may not see much of it. There are new extensions to graphics environment like "Mantle" that OS can use to it's advantage too. As CPUs are more or less stuck to sub or less than 5 GHz frequencies, more cores are added and OS would have to be able to divide background and foreground jobs so they do not "collide" and slow everything down.
    Those are just some changes that are heck of a more important than weather interface would be called Metro or modern or even what it looks like.

    Me too, will use it to update 1 machine for a "look see" and then decide. I have never "not updated" in the past so I expect I will here too.

    You may want to consider updating a cloned version (on another drive) to save you all the pains of getting your Win 8.1 back in case of an unfortunate event.

    I'm experimenting with Windows 8.1 in a VM right now, and I'm as surprised as anyone to say "I like it". I will try Threshold as a Consumer Preview (IF !!!! If there is an x86 build). I'll decide which I like better then.
