    Well after a few months i do not favor Win 10 over Win 8.1.

    If tomorrow i have to go back to Win8.1, i would not mind at all.

    Hi there

    What you *could* do is always load the free 180 day trials from the ms site -- provided you don't mind re-installing everything again every 6 months or so.

    My feel is that initially there will be a decent introductory offer - especially for Windows 7 / VISTA (and there might even be a sweetener for the not unconsiderable number of XP users too). If that's the case I'll re-load my W7 and upgrade from there.

    An upgrade from W8.1 might also be in the offing -- but what the future of W8.1 is I can only guess. I suspect Ms wants to be rid of it as soon as possible.

    New users probably will pay whatever the "current market rate" is at that time -- pity I can't buy in Roubles at the moment !!!!!!

    he Jimbo,

    i will definitly look into it, since i feel that Windows right now is not improving at all....

    Sure the Metro is gone, but mixing this with the desktop start menu??????

    Yes, Russia is in trouble, not only the Rouble is only worth 50% of its initial value, but a barrel of oil costs only around $60 or even less.

    And Russia has to make a lot of money of there oil export.

    Oil prices is Russia's biggest problem for sure,
    As fast as it goes down in price it usually doesn't last long

    You can remove the tiles on the menu altogether, making it more like a classic menu.

    As to cost it really means nothing to me. If you think that it will scratch your wallet then maybe now is the time to start putting away say a 20 spot each month until the release of win 10, thus you will have at least enough to buy one copy maybe two. . .who knows maybe even three or four. . .:)
    I really like your idea and will start doing this from January. By the time 10 is released I'll hopefully have enough.

    We were talking about "maybe" Microsoft giving a big break to Windows Insiders . . . I found this this morning and thought y'all would be interested.

    Microsoft: We have more than 1.5 million Windows 10 'Insiders' | ZDNet

    The last paragraph of this article says:

    <<Microsoft also is expected to show off at that event its Windows 10 mobile preview, which is expected to run on Intel- and ARM-based tablets, as well as Windows Phones. Microsoft's OSG is hustling to make the mobile preview available to testers by January 21 or shortly thereafter, sources say.>>

    Folks, ARM equates to our Android tablets! I would love to be able to test Windows 10 on my tablet . . .

    Hi and welcome to TenForums,
    The 64 bit iso is 3.79 gigs
    Since it a build there really isn't a whole lot of updates to it so the 16 gig posted dave will give a little breathing room but not allot for stuff,

    In windows 8 you can take advantage of hyper-v install
    Would be allot safer than dual boot on the same drive and allot easier to get rid of after your done with it,
    Cheers.
