    I'm just about as skeptical of that one as I was about Microsoft handing out free licenses to Insiders.

    Think of it. If they make the upgrade for home users (cheap is the wrong word) affordable to a wide band of people, more people will do it and they'ld make a killin' with the 1,000,000,000 device target. But if it stays to expensive for most maybe only a few hundred thousand will do it.

    True, I'd definitely upgrade my (original 7 home) to 10 pro....though I have a feeling that the upgrade's just to encourage people to enter credit card information to get them "aquianted" with the Win10 store.

    That'd be a problem for me. The one thing I don't do, is any financial transactions, or even balance checks online or with my PC. I only do SCT's(SEPA Credit Transfers) from my bank.

    Although I currently use 'Pro' versions of Windows 8 (so it doesn't affect me personally), to be honest I was disappointed that Microsoft decided to have both a 'Home' and a 'Pro' version of Windows 10 anyway.

    When they initially talked about 'One' Windows and then came up with all the bullsh... spiel about in the future people would just have to say they're running 'Windows', I assumed that was going to mean they would finally just combine the two so everyone was on the same version of Windows (which would be Windows Pro). But no, they had to complicate it.

    Just the other day I was looking through the Dell website and they don't even state what version of Windows, just '64bit'. IMO it would have made everything so much simpler for everyone if Microsoft stuck to their word and just had Windows 10 and Windows 10 Enterprise.

    Two choices sounds good to me as well.

    There is no "home" version of Windows. There is only Windows, Windows Pro, and Windows Enterprise. So the old "Home" version is now just called "Windows". Pro adds a few features, like Remote Desktop Server, Joining Domains, Client-Hyper-V, etc.. Enterprise is basically Pro, with a few features for Enterprises, like AppLocker and (for some strange reason, which I don't understand why its considered an Enterprise Feature) Windows 2 Go.

    So there is only one Windows, but different Editions add on to the "Core".

    At THIS link Microsoft list "Windows 10 Home", so it already proves my point that it would be so much simpler for everyone if Microsoft stuck to their word and just had Windows 10 and Windows 10 Enterprise.

    There's no need to have both 'Home' (or whatever it's called) and 'Pro' versions, it just adds another version that developers will need to test with, learning material will need to take into account, etc..

    How's that??? They just need to learn Enterprise because it's just a couple of extras added and built over the other two....

    I think you're forgetting that MS need a version to force updates to.
