    That doesn't work to well. Virtual environment is like using another computer and this would require an additional license to use windows 10. No, I think the issue is some should set it for the slow build but the one issue is sometimes Microsoft never releases a slow build.

    I am not doing the insider thing because I don't want to give up my windows 7 license for testing. By the way, I did a clean install of windows 10 November release and still have the display flashing issue which I never had with windows 7 or Linux. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the graphics driver update.

    You do understand that using the Windows 7 license for an upgrade to Windows 10 does not invalidate the Windows 7 license? You can go back to Windows 7 at any time but uninstalling Windows 10 and either restoring a Windows 7 image or re-installing Windows 7. You just can't have them both installed at the same time. Some people hold the mistaken belief that once they use the Windows 7 license for the upgrade it is gone forever and that is...well...mistaken.

    No longer having issues


    I have had my share of issues, most shared with others here, and none I could not work around (often with help from other postings). I have three systems running W10, two on the latest insider build, including my "daily driver". Only once did I need a full recovery, due to my own fumble. Otherwise, I applied the updates, for over a year now. I think 14342 is ready for prime time.

    Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    I am running Win 10 on a Desktop and also a Laptop Stable and Preview. Preview is the only one with a few minor issues (Expected with beta software) Have helped several friends update to Win 10 on various machines without issue.

    And I was a Mac user for over 10 years returning to Windows. I am impressed with 10.

    Well i do not mind having to pay for Windows starting july, as long as the Insider Fast Ring stays as is, because as others i like it.

    The Windows 10 haters should go back to XP.....my god......

    I love my Start Menu that came with Windows 8. The 3 other computers here have the old style start menu and everytime i need to be on one of those computers, it bothers me not having the newer Start Menu, some of us dislike.

    First, I am not a hater. I like windows 10. Second, I would like to keep it but can't stand the flickering it does (hurts the eye) some recent update caused this issue because July 2016 with all updates & November 2016 release with no updates didn't have the issue. Windows 7 sp1 and Linux Mint and other Linux distros didn't have the flickering issue. I even tried a insider release that flickering is even worse. For example, if I bought a windows 10 computer at a store, did all the updates and it started to flicker back to the store it goes. I only get computers that can be returned to the store for a refund.


    Second, a lot of 7 sp1 & 8.x computers can't be upgraded to windows 10.

    3 desktops and 2 laptops running Windows 10 Home here without any problems.
    I've also done many upgrades to 10 for other family members and they are all happy also.

    To me that sounds like a driver issue you're having.

    Definitely driver related, and in regard to the last sentance, I've found it a rarity that a win 7 or 8 system cant get upgraded to 10.
