    Why don't they just give a way free home retail version of 10 for a 365 day sign-up period (Not pro, not enterprise) to anyone who wants it? Then just mail them the disk/flash drive (Saves server load). Businesses would use pro not home. They give students free version of windows pro.

    The insiders will still be able to get rtm and newer builds of home or pro depending on which one they want to test and of course they will be activated if associated with a Microsoft account.


    Of course the current upgrade scheme would still work with the home version taken out of the mix. Since anyone could sign-up for a home disk/flash drive to be mailed. You would be able to upgrade or do a clean install from this disk.

    Ah,, how about.. no., I'll give up my Win8.1 license for a copy of Win10. No trial junk for me thank you.

    What I think was supposed to happened. Insiders will get the RTM build as normal and it will be activated just like other builds were but if you leave the program after RTM you would have some proof of a previous windows 7 or 8.1 system to keep it activated.

    I think that might change thanks to error Microsoft made. My interpretation of Microsoft needing more time is Gabe, legal, Marketing and Financial are all going to be in a meeting today to see how to proceed with the insider program and the errors that happened I know a lot of insider don't want to have to provide proof of a previous operating system 7 or 8.x to keep testing builds after the RTM.


    A lot of Press is still quoting the original blog unaware it has changed.


    It looks like I was correct according to this article below but we will see later if Microsoft clarifies this. Sorry, but I am not testing windows 10 forever just to have it. I am not going to let windows 10 consume a key either.

    Aul's tweet of Sunday may -- or may not -- have settled the deal, which comes with caveats, first mentioned Friday but then downplayed. Users who want to retain an activated, thus "genuine" (Microsoft terminology that denotes legitimacy) copy will have to remain on the Insider "branch," or release track. Aul's tweet signaled that Insiders who haven't upgraded from a qualified edition will not be able to leave the branch, opting in for one with less-dicey updates and changes, without dropping out of activation.

    The final word on this will come from MS and not "Computeworld"..

    Read the post by Brink at the being of this thread. Read Gabe tweets later in thread as well. Gabe tweets even this latest one is conflicting with what was posted in the corrected blog. Gabe should know what he is talking about.
    Gabe is the mouthpiece, NOT the bean counter.

    There's now a 3rd version of Gabe Aul's blog post. I started a new thread as it has some significant clarifications that answer a lot of questions, and I hope having them at the top of a new thread will be more helpful to casual forum visitors than having it on page 27 of this one.

    Kinda fun to imagine Gabe's conversations with the suits. They probably saw the tweet, called him into their office and said "nope".
    I'm guessing that conversation happened this morning!
