    Hi there

    Nothing new in that -- like buying a ticket in advance for The Super bowl or say an Opera at London's Royal Opera House for end of December etc. So what's so special that it needs to be called something else. Just confuses people. I Don't "Pre-Order" a ticket to go to the Royal Opera !!! I just pay in advance -- and if the booking period isn't open the booking just gets added to the waiting list and is submitted when the booking period opens. --Simple -- no special "phrasess" needed unless it's to SUCKER the customers into thinking they are getting something special..

    In any case the deals on offer here don't look that good.

    Cheers

    Actually the best buy would be Windows 7 Pro. Pop that on your PC image it, upgrade to 10 image that. Then you could run a dual boot set up or restore 7 if 10 does not run well on your system. I am of course assuming you have an OEM copy of 7 on the machine already which would usually be Home Premium so you end up with 10 pro which gives you more options than just the core 10 OS would.

    This:

    Windows 10 Upgrade Matrix: Which Version You Get For Free - Thurrott.com

    Thurrott isn't an official MS site, but he seems to be part of the ecosystem.

    Short version: Win 7 Home Premium ---> Win10 Home.

    Just in case it matters to anyone.

    Beats me, Jimbo. I just posted Pre-order (preorder gives a red squiggly) because NewEgg's email to me had it.

    I saw that, Indiana, but since I already have Windows 8.1 and Windows 7, I have more than enough licenses.

    I think Thurrott has cleaned up his act some; he used to be "almost" squeaky clean, but not quite.

    Ooooohhhhh! Maybe I should too! But maybe not. Why shouldn't I? I could . . . Oh, shoot, I don't know what to do! Why does money always come into the equation?

    only reason I see for pre-ordering , is availability of the product on release date ,so lets say you order it now ,and I wait and order it on or after the august dated posted ,,I might have to wait longer ,if there is a shortage of win10 because of large numbers pre-ordering it
