I like the way W10 is heading and will UPGRADE my present OS.
I like W10 but would ONLY consider a clean install.
It's been fun but I will not be using W10 as my main OS in the near future.
W10 is my favourite OS.
W8.1 is my favourite.
W8 is my favourite.
W7 is my favourite.
Vista is my favourite.
XP is my favourite.
Another such as OSX or Linux.
I will upgrade from Windows 7, Medicare doesn't cover this.
Since Windows 7 is still supported one can build a new system using it and then upgrade .
Since they are giving free upgrades to Win 8, 8.1 and 7 users it may cost allot. MS has to make up the money in some way , other than the app store.
I don't know how many large system builders are out there, but offhand I can think of HP, Toshiba, Lenovo, Dell. And then there're the small "mom and pop" companies . . .
Microsoft seems to be doing its best to do away with all hardware media and going to download only, but although I have tried to figure out a way they can do that, it just won't quite compute. The more I think about it, the more I believe there will just have to be some type of media to at least install Windows with.
There are just too many folks who still don't have a fast Internet service. Also, there are more and smaller laptops that will come without a DVD drive. Tablets don't have DVD drives, do they? Certainly mine don't, but then they're 'droids. So . . . I'm back at square one, wondering what the next computers will be like.
