    Always the latest Insider build.

    Can't believe in the generosity of Ms -- there MUST be a catch somewhere -- I don't regard getting new updates to insider builds as a problem - especially if I can run a FREE W10 build.

    Hey jimbo, what is the text to enter in the command prompt to check if you are "permanently activated" ? I can't read it on my screen. Thanks, jgcjr

    From the command prompt:
    slmgr/xpr

    And winver gives you information.

    When posting a Home key which part do I post, that last 5 or the first 5? I wanted to see if the home key is duplicated on 10240 as well. I am going to do a test as well. I am going to try a clean install and see if it activates without a Microsoft account.

    In this case Permanently Activated isn't really permanently activated. Not the way some of you are thinking. I get the same thing if I run that command on my Windows 8.1 PC. I take it to mean your not running a trial version or VL KMS activation etc. If Microsoft blacklists that key you'll fail activation. As far as I know Windows tries to verify activation status every time you boot up. I get that same message on build 10240, and I have not opted out of the insiders program. I originally did an upgrade from Windows 7.

    Will we get the upgrade on the 29th and if so will this be a non issue?

    I ment the possible issue with build 10240 expiration date.
    So we will get the upgrade from build 10240 to the final on/about the 29th.. Am I thinking correctly about this?

    I think so yes, I haven't seen anything to say otherwise? If nothing happens after the 29th, just opt out and see what happens. See this post, Windows 10 Build 10240 for PC is now available

    Couldn't find a MS reference, but Shawn is trustworthy - I'm sure he knows where MS stashed the information (a blog, a Developer subscription, an RSS feed, MS engineer on MS forums....)
