    I am confused, so if you back up your w7 system, take the W10 upgrade by using your W7 license, then change your mind, and reinstall W7, that MS will change the status of your license to what it was before you did the upgrade/clean install?

    I am under the assumption that you "forfeit" your present license for a new W10 one??

    why would you even think about holding me to it?

    i linked to a microsoft semi-official statement. what do i have to do with that?

    you can trust a MS-MVP Community Moderator, or you don't
    the probability of an answer on a microsoft.com page by a certified community moderator being true
    is bigger than any other gossip thats floating around in the web about it.

    Archaic

    Thats like saying all you lose is an archaic gun when being forced to switch from a M14 to a M16A1 during vietnam war.
    You might say... WOW the M16 looks so sexy... wow it has a glow in the dark sight system... wooow a carrying handle..
    What good is that stuff for when the M16 is more prone to jams and ejection failure than the M14.
    I'm not saying that Windows 10 is less stable or will have more errors in RTM version than Win 7 or 8
    But! The features that are advertised are not really improvements that affect the main characteristics of an operating system.

    Keyword of the day for you: "reliability"

    I've installed Windows 10 on a secondary 2009 Core 2 Duo ASUS Laptop.. It runs smooth as butter with only minor start menu glitches. Please do not mention Windows 7 with Windows 10. It's not even close to similar! Windows 8 already took down 7 in performance, stability and reliability and 10 is pushing it even further, along with a bunch of new features.

    If you read enough forums, you'll find people claiming the exact opposite.

    I didn't notice any difference between W7 & W8 in terms of stability and reliability,
    I don't have the tools (or inclination) so I can't prove it one way or the other.

    A reply for Jimbo. I joined the forum just to reply to this thread so I don't have enough posts to PM yet. Would you mind PM'ing me? I'm interested in finding out what all you have been able to move over from Win 7 to Win 10 for my school Windows images that I'll be working on soon.

    Hi there

    anybody who wants to keep the old standard W7 classic games including pinball, minesweeper, hearts etc.-- PM me and I'll give you my dropbox link --I stlll think the old W7 spider solitaire etc is much better than the newer one's from the store.

    The games work just fine on W10 build 100130.



    Cheers
    jimbo
