    I haven't decided yet. If it's available for my computers, then yes I will jump on the bandwagon and get Windows 10. Because, I really don't want my to lose support of updates.
    All updates will be free for the life of the device.
    Yes, I know. But, they are saying now that it will only be available for "some" users. I have a Windows 8.1 desktop with the 8.1 Update installed and a Windows 7 laptop with the SP1 installed. I really don't know what they are talking about, when they say "some". I am guessing it means that if your computer meets the hardware requirements. That's what it said on the Microsoft Windows website. If you have not signed up for Windows 10, I would do so now by following this link Windows 10 - Microsoft Windows. Otherwise, you may be left in the dust.

    For what it's worth BadRobot I doubt the oem versions will be all that expensive
    Not everyone is all that crazy about upgrade versions but free is attractive

    Coming from Win 7, I am not really that crazy about the free upgrade. I would really love to keep my 7. That's why I asked earlier about upgrading only a cloned copy.

    Up to now, I am still not liking Win 8 but the "new" Win 10 is really something to look forward to. I have nothing to lose with Win 8. :)

    It is our intent that most of these devices will qualify, but some hardware/software requirements apply and feature availability may vary by device. Devices must be connected to the internet and have Windows Update enabled. ISP fees may apply. Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 Update required. Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. Active Software Assurance customers in volume licensing have the benefit to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise outside of this offer. We will be sharing more information and additional offer terms in coming months.

    To me it sounds like to get the free windows 10. You have to use windows update to install windows 10 for free. I don't like that method at all. Lot of people were expecting iso, dvd or usb flash to install windows 10. That won't help Microsoft get more windows 10 users but that just my opinion.

    That same statement is also here

    I think its more convenient to do it through Windows update. But, it was also okay to do it through the Windows Store for 8 users. It really doesn't matter to me. I have the requirements. At least that's what my specs say when I did the DxDiag test.

    Are you saying that we have to have certain updates to install W 10? Do we need to get on a list?

    Recently I had a problem with windows update on my W 7 desktop, it erased the contents of folders in MS Office and Libre which was testing for myself. I could not even do a system restore finally I reformatted.

    Before I set it up I stopped windows update because there were over 200 updates to do and it interfered with the set up. When I had it set up, I installed MS Office from a CD I bought. I forgot the updates and during the install MS over road my "never" settings and installed only what was needed. I googled about it and on the MS site I was told they do this if you are installing something that needs the update. I thought "Good". Then I installed MS Essentials to get my email program and MS installed what the software needed. Couldn't/wouldn't it install what was need to upgrade to 10.

    Someone either on here, or on the 8 forums said that they had heard we would have to go through some updates to be ready for Windows 10.

    I'll leave my Win 7 systems alone. Win 10 has not moved me in a good way and Win 8 made me barf. When the test version of 10 times out I'll load yet another Linux distro.

    Microcenter has a 7" Winbook with 8.1 for $60 USD - might buy that to upgrade to Win 10 as I need a little entertainment traveller on the bus commute to/from work. So far that's about all I could use Win 10 for.
