    Win 10 a "refresh" or an "upgrade" from Win 7 and Win 8?


    I have been under the impression that Win 10 may be like an upgrade so you don't have to re-install all your desktop programs. If it is a "refresh" what a pain

    If it is an upgrade will it kill Windows Media Center or might it actually survive to run in Win 10?

    I did an upgrade but I never used the Windows Media stuff. I suppose it would kill it.

    WMC was removed when I ran the upgrade over my 8.1 install.

    I'm wondering about the RTM version but I suspect it will be the same as the TP.
