    Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit 15063 Multiprocessor Free

    I've sent feedback to them about the way it freezes so much and is very slow. OK I know it's in beta but so far what I've seen does not impress me.

    There is one type of user: Was you computer running a legal copy of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 and did you decide to install a clean version of Windows 10 (meaning there is a legal Windows 8 or 8.1 key stored in the bios) will I have to downgrade first to upgrade to a legal GA version? The teams have asked me to install a clean version of Windows 10 to troubleshoot issues, in fact I will be installing a clean version to get rid of the Windows 8.1 drivers and older DLL that cause problems with background processes.

    I have been testing W10 TP on an older HP laptop which I'd kept as a spare. It originally had the Vista OS installed on it so it won't get the eventual free W10 upgrade after July 29th. My other daily use laptop is a one year old Asus with Windows 8.1. Am I right in assuming that as the TP is not on my Asus machine I would have to wait in queue with everyone else for the free upgrade? Or having registered as an Insider with a MS Account etc, would I be able to download a .iso file shortly after July 29th and get W10 installed on my Win 8.1 machine sooner? I currently have the upgrade icon showing on the Asus machine and have reserved W10 for it.

    win 10 Insider

    Perhaps many of us don't use IE, either.

    There are two reasons I don't use Edge. No ad blocking and stupid alpha sorting of my Favorites. Hopefully these will be addressed but until then.........

    The way I understand it, Debbie, is that if you used the same Microsoft account on Windows 8.1 (and if your Microsoft account is connected to Windows 8.1) and the Windows 10 installation (on the old Vista 'chine), you should be good to go for the July 29 upgrade to Windows 10.

    Having said that, I'm not sure if the Windows 10 upgrade can be installed on all of the Insider computers on July 29. Last time I saw a count of Insiders it was at around 3.5 million, and I'm sure there are more by now, since that was at least a couple or three months ago.

    Personally, I will probably wait (if I have a choice) at least a week, just in case things get hectic in the download area. I really don't care to spend all day trying to download and install Windows 10. The last Preview Build will do for me until I get the final product.

    Not yet, Edge isn't! At least not in my opinion!

    Windows 10 TP x64

    The only thing I am missing from Edge is addon support - two addons I need are LastPass and Internet Download Manager. For now, when needed, I use the More Options>Open in Internet Explorer, but that's just workaround. Other than that, I have left Firefox (and Chrome before) and use Edge as my default browser. As for favorities, I am using Pinboard.in and just keep an open tab with it, so not using them at all.

    Thanks for reply, yes my Win 8.1 machine is also connected to the same MS account so I should be OK. I don't mind waiting a week or two. My guess is that when they start rolling out the upgrade, all those who reserved it will get a pop-up to say it's ready for downloading and they can go ahead or click on a button that days 'Remind me later' or something.

    Didn't they say at the first mention of spartan that they would add addons perhaps after RTM is launched?
