    Yes and the ink cost more than the printer.


    haha.. I have 2 Epson XP-310 wireless printers only because the second one I bought is cheaper than buying just a set of refill ink. The printer came with a complete set of ink. The extra printer is in the storage. Nothing to do with the topic. Just sharing.

    Windows is not Linux and there is no free lunch. Users will pay for Windows 10 -one way or another. MS is a for profit company and not a foundation. Windows 10 is kind of fast but it also is kind of ugly. My drive is constantly being accessed and it gets really hot. I have 66 processes running. I probably do not need 20 of them. For now I am going to remove this disk and wait for the next Build to come out. Hopefully it will be before Patch Tuesday.

    Because MS is changing the rules of the game. It's like giving us free printers. We just need to buy ink.
    Yeah, and the ink costs an arm and a leg. Read that HP printers.

    All my printers are Brother because they just work with every new version of Windows and the ink is much cheaper; HP printers usually have to be swapped out unless they're the very latest ones out and the ink is very expensive.

    Why would you want W10 and be forced to pay for something that is currently free on earlier versions of Windows? Just imagine the fun when you have a faulty machine or something errors. "A fatal error has occurred. Please re-enter your Credit card to continue."
    Rubbish. Every instance of Windows has been much cheaper than the last. What exactly are you "forced to" pay for that you got free before? The "Ultimate" tier in Vista and 7 was dropped so everyone on 8 Pro gets Bitlocker and changing of language for free. 10 is the same. Are you just complaining about the old TV tuner thing or have I missed something interesting?

    They are trying to perfect what already in the builds. I tested build 10051 and there is no IE but there is an option to open a website in IE. The mail, contacts and calendar apps have been updated from 10049. The still have 2 stores but the gray one is beginning to look like the green one. I re downloaded The Word and Excel Windows 10 preview and they are working which they weren't in 10049.
    Good to know that Office for Windows 10 doesn't work in 10049. I won't bother to test them this time around. They have worked in the past.

    The mail and stuff are not updates. Those are new designs.
    I couldn't find Mail in 10049. I had the icons for it, but of course they didn't work.

    Yes but it's completely different from 10049 to 10051. It allows IMAP, POP and Google. I tried to set my google using IMAP and it didn't work it wouldn't sync and then when i deleted and recreated I selected Google and it set it up and it synced right away. I haven't checked the other apps. I installed in a new VM and I left my PC where it's the main install as Build 10049. I'm hearing the next released Build will be 10054.

    Funny you should say that. The last MacBook I bought I was offered a "free" printer in the Apple store. I wouldn't take it which upset them for some reason. Ink commission probably.

    You had to run a Powershell script and then re-download them from the store (The green store not the gray one). The problem was a licensing issue that will be fixed in the next release.

    Not the Office 2016 the individual Word, Excel and Powerpoint Modern apps for Windows 10. Since it's getting confusing with the Office products. I didn't test the Office 2016 preview you had to sign that you would give Microsoft secrets away.
