I just like using the start menu.. I have for some time and the new one works fine, is organized the way I want it and it looks nice at the same time. It would be nice to be able to select from different versions of the start menu when you set up Win10 and later on in the settings. I would like to see: Win7 look, Win10 and something else.
I wonder if they can properly distinguish between OEM SLIC licenses of Windows 7 and *ahem* a relatively popular and highly reliable circumvention that installs a fake SLIC as a driver...
There are much different activator methods out there these days than with 7 to activate 8.1 illegally. Obviously I'm not going to say what or how, but it's definitely not the OEM BIOS SLIC method anymore as the new licensing model of 8 is much different than 7. Just don't pirate Windows, buy a cheap copy of 7 or 8 and wait for 10.
If I do decide to upgrade it all depends of what the life of device really means and how well I can configure it, once the consumer preview comes out?
It also depends if I want 32 bit or 64 bit since I only have 4 gb of ram. I can install the 32 bit of Windows 7 using the oem key on the back of my computer then do then upgrade.

Dave44, Found out if I ever decided to upgrade it will be the 64 bit version. My program doesn't run on either 32 bit or 64 bit. I will still have to dual boot with Linux. Until possibly wine comes up with a windows version that runs older software, it under development last I read.
