Windows 10: What version of Windows 10 do I need? Solved

    What version of Windows 10 do I need?

    So we all know Win 10 is right around the corner. Right now I have a legit copy of Win 8.1 installed on my desktop. It is the core version. But I have not seen much stuff talking about a Core edition of Win 10. So my question is what version of Win 10 will I be getting? I was in the insiders program and wanted to test 10240 but its grey out..

    SO i was wondering will there be a core edition of Win 10 or will it be the Home edition?

    If you want to get back to being an insider you can install the latest ISO (10162) and update to 10240.

    One of my clean installs finished with Windows fully activated... No need to manually activate ! Odd, isn't it?
