    I got my confirmation email. I really like the small print at the bottom(I'll enlarge it here for the ones with sight disabilities):

    The reason I asked about the W update, the last one I did is the last one I did. It made a horrible mess of my computer. It emptied my MS Office folders, my Libre folders and a system restore did not work. I could not fix anything so I did a reformat. My 8.1 laptop is fairly new, so it won't be a problem. I am not putting 10 on my desktop W 7, at least not until I try it on my laptop.

    About my DVDs not playing on my laptop even with VLC, I am assuming because they were Bluray's, they need a special player like they have for the TV.

    thanks for all the replies.

    Emma,
    I don't know if the windows 10 during upgrade will remove the files that allows dvds to be played in windows 7 via windows media player or if they are just removing the dvd feature from windows media player in windows 10. If you have a dvd player VLC should be able to play any dvd in windows 10 with the exception of blu-ray. You need a Bluray drive for Bluray disk. Vlc Bluray still had some issues (I don't know if they have them fix them).

    Thanks, Groze. I just tried a Blueray disk and it just sat there and did nothing. I inserted the regular disk, and it told me the name of the disk and that I need to get a DVD player.

    I'm going for Kodi.

    If using VLC, sometimes you need to open dvds via the VLC application.

    I think I am going to do some testing with the new build once ISO is released. Since, I found out, I can keep being a beta tester for free and keep my windows 7 as well. However, I may do test upgrade first.

    Yehhhhhhhhhhh, best of both worlds!

    I'll keep testing just because I like to test, but it'll be good to keep my license to Windows 8.1. Having unused licenses laying around is good.

    when I put a reg dvd in the laptop, it did what someone else said, the name and info popped right up without me doing a thing. I never activate Windows Media player, I prefer Itunes. Much simpler to learn and use.

    Wynona as crazy as it sounds I like to solved my own computer problems. I thought I had solved the acer losing my settings on my taskbar items, but I haven't yet. The games folder and the tools folder are gone after the laptop has been shut down for a few days. I thought I was just forgetting the taskbar locking routine, but that was not the problem. I will keep working on it. It feels so good when I solve my own problems. It's odd how the little things like that stupid keyboard icon is on the TB every time I turn the pc on after being off for awhile. I need to check the advance settings and see if I can find a setting there to stop it.

Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
