    I do like some of the changes in Windows 10. I'm still not sure I'll be upgrading to 10 when it goes final though. With each release instead of the bugs I'm having getting fixed, More are being introduced. Yes I know 10 is not in it's final stages and we will have a few bugs. When 10 does go final two things will have to happen for me to upgrade. 1. the bugs I'm having will have to be fixed. 2. Windows 10 will have a discount price for those running Windows 8.1.1 or Windows 10 TP.

    It is probably smart not to jump on the RTM immediately. Wait for 6 months and let the others debig it first.

    MS needs to "lift their game"

    I agree.
    The fact that the new preview versions are getting worse, instead of better, is dampening my enthusiasm.

    One of my SevenForums comments:
    The last two upgrades have been backward steps.
    If my coding (bad as it is) got worse with each new version, I'd pack it in.

    A discount price would be nice.
    It didn't entice me to buy W8 though.

    W10 needs to work out-of-the-box AND not be annoying.

    Unless the discount price won't last that long.

    Windows 8 was available for $40 for a while -- which is what I paid for it. If MS offers something similar for Win10, even with its similarities to Win8, I personally would buy it. But now, I'm seeing threads where folks are predicting that Win10 will be a free upgrade from Win8 (and maybe, Win7).

    I would get it for the discount price but install it 6 months later.

    I agree, They are dreaming. I don't see MS giving away Windows 10 for free. It may be a free upgrade for someone who just bought a new computer. I would buy Windows 10 for $40.00. I'm sure most of the bugs will be worked out by then. Plus I'm sure the OEM's will be updating their drivers and/or programs to be compatible with Windows 10 if necessary.

    If memory serves me,
    8 started out as a 19.99 u.s. Upgrade
    Then went up to 39.99 as a upgrade
    Then settle out as a disk full install about 120. ? offered on many sites today same as win-7
    So if history repeats I would expect the same pricing but nothing in life is free
    But you never know about Microsoft :/
