    do you have a link where they said that. because i'm pretty sure gabe said clearly if you came from a genuine win 7 or 8, 8.1 account, that you CAN go straight to final release, without having to reinstall old os.
    He was getting that confused with a clean install of windows 10 not an upgrade install.


    Here is how I understand it.

    Windows 7 sp1 or 8.1 upgraded to windows 10 previews then upgraded to windows 10 release. You can choose to leave the insider program after the release is installed and windows 10 release will remain activated with no expiration date.

    yes, that is exactly how i was understanding it as well.

    anybody else notice the borders around the control buttons at the top of the windows(close, minimize...)? before there was nothing around them. they color just appeared when you moused over them, but now there is a distinct border around them.

    yeah, i use to use cursorfx. i did like those cursors as well. but the good news is that win 10 has one of their functions, where you can change the cursor to contrast any background. at least that is cool.
    You wouldn't know name of that contrast cursors, would you ?

    sure. go to settings/ease of access/mouse. then you can pick which size you want, and at the bottom right hand corner is the contrast mouse. i use medium pointer size, with contrast mouse. works very well. hope this helps.

    The explanation, or should I say, unexplanation of what will happen on launch date. One thing is definite, MS will NOT be upgrading everyone on that day! It could be up to a MONTH before your "upgrade to Win10" icon actually, y'know, updates your computer. But we in the insider fast ring will definitely be the first! I think. What a confusing story.

    To leave the Insider Program to me is to roll back to my original Win 7/8.1. Does anyone upgraded from 7/8.1 to Previous Builds has a Win 10 Upgrade icon at right side at the taskbar? If not, how's that going to work?

    no, i believe to leave the insider program, gabe just said you need to click the choice. if you came from a genuine win 7, 8, 8.1, then your os will remain activated. if you didn't, you need to go back through the steps to do so.

    I don't see we have the CHOICES in any builds yet. Maybe M$ will provide such choices to upgrade ones ONLY by an WU or next builds.

    We don't know many things yet. But roll back or reinstall are confirmed options for sure.
