    I had to look in "system" to find that I had the pro version, I had no idea that there was a choice.

    Why, may I ask, anyone would be interested in the Home version of the Win 10 preview? It's free anyway, right? So what exactly are you paying your dollar for?

    The charge is for pro. The offer is aimed at those that would only be entitled to a free Home Edition.

    What does the pro version offer other than the ability to determine the timing of the "required" updates?

    I would think that it isn't so different from win 8.1 or earlier versions
    mostly things for work in enterprise for example ability to join domain, group policy, remote desktop host, BitLocker support, boot from VHD, hyper-v.

    I think Bitlocker is useful for home use too - if someone steals your laptop and it has Bitlocker, you have at least some assurance that your personal data won't be easy to access.

I have been using win 10 tp for quite a while and I'm pleased with it. Just curious am I going to have to reinstall another windows to get win 10 or be able to go straight from Windows 10 when it releases? Thanks for the help.
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
I am confused about the one year free upgrade. Is it free as in upgrade for a year and it is yours to have forever? Or is it free for one year and then you have to pay even though you already upgraded?
