    Here is an issue I see happening with windows 10 upgrade using windows update. You get it all installed. Everything is running fine, then the following year your hard drive crashes or your windows 10 operating quits working. Now you can't use an iso or dvd or flash drive to reinstall windows 10. If you put your old system back on, you won't be able to get the free upgrade anymore because it been more than a year. Now you half to go back to your old system or buy a windows 10 dvd.

    That's when you use phone activation.

    The cure for that is called imaging, imaging, imaging.

    I'd be willing to just buy Windows 10 outright, if MS releases it as a OEM System Builder's disk, as they've done since Vista. I've never liked upgrades, as it seems that people have a lot of problems with them.

    That is definitely true. Upgrades have been a pain.

    Well, if that's the case then Microsoft needs to do some more thinking on this. If a user has issues with their computer, and they cant get 10 back due to the year being up, then they should let users who have signed up for 10 do the 10 upgrade on their systems again. But, this could be the plan already. If you go to Microsoft, you can sign up for Windows 10 announcements, news, and other information.

    I will be dual booting just to keep in practice with W10 for my customers. I am waiting for the newest build to be released. That last build was good but I will be a W7 user for years to come. I don't see much talk about buying new computers with W10. For those who are not aware, the bios will be replaced with UEFI. I've studied it but others will have another new learning curve ahead of them along with the W10 operating system.

    UEFI is already out there, new PC's shipping with Windows 8/8.1 have it in most cases. My two laptops have it.

    Spot on. I'd prefer a less annoying method (typing in all the numbers) but phone activation always works.

    I've done the phone activation a couple of times. Fully automated voice recognition, didn't have to talk to a real person. I read my numbers in and the voice called out the new code to type in. A little time consuming but no big deal.
