    That's why I'll have an RTM/GA installation to upgrade my Windows 8.1 partition to Windows 10 and then have the Insider version of Windows 10 on the other partition.
    Will it be possible to operate two versions of W10 on the same drive, or even on the same computer?
    The jury is out on that one, it remains to be seen if possible.

    I will upgrade my 2 Win 8.1 systems to RTM/GA and also stay an Insider using another 2 hard drives using the BIOS boot method.

    @z3r010 another option could be added to the Poll:

    * I'm going to move to RTM/GA & remain an Insider by creating a Dual Boot system.
    Agree - That's what I plan to do with one system. The other is going GA/RTM

    The more I think about it; the more I read, the more it makes me wonder too.

    Windows 8.1 Pro is on one Partition. I want to upgrade this partition to Windows 10 but I don't want it to be a Windows Insider.

    Windows 10 is on another Partition. I want this partition to remain as a Windows Insider.

    However, I think the catch is that both of these installations are connected to the same Microsoft Account. Seems to me I have an "either/or" situation. If I want to remain a Windows Insider, I do nothing and I'm still in. Otherwise, I opt out. Whichever I choose will probably apply to both installations!

    At this late stage of the game, my dilemma is that I probably need to change Windows 8.1 to another Microsoft Account and hopefully that will make things right.

    I'm planning on using the RTM as my main OS and continue to stay in the insider program either as a dual boot or on one of my laptops.
    Good way to go !

    UPDATE: Right now I upgraded WIn8.1 to Build 10240 and that's what I'm going to use for the upgrade on the 29th. If I can I might stay in the insider program but it's not a major goal of mine at this point.

    Well, I'm definitely going to upgrade, I haven't used W8.1 for 6 months, so......,
    whether I stay an Insider, that remains to be seen.

    As the Insider program will continue after Windows 10 is released I thought I'd see how many of you are going to stay an insider or jump over to RTM/GA version.

    I agree, I'll simply rollback the windows 10 Release Candidate version/Beta test version to my previous Windows 8.1 version OS and then migrate forward into the Official RTM version of Windows 10 Pro from there.

    Even though the Insider pre-release testing program will continue releasing new beta quality builds and updates to them, they will technically still be unofficial versions of the windows 10 OS and software.

    The only upside to perpetually running known buggy software on your system is that each of the preview builds will come with ISO installer files to ensure that if things get too bad while testing them, Insider participants can simply re-install their beta version of Windows 10 to correct any persistent issues they may find themselves having with it.

    Don't be stupid! If you have an authentic licensed copy of either windows 7 or windows 8/8.1, just rollback to those version and take the official upgrade migration path to the Official RTM version of the RTM version of Windows 10 that will be supported for 10 years from the date of its official release.

    Remember, you only have access to a free copy for the following year after its official release. Who knows when Microsoft will decide to end their beta testing program for Windows 10 with no questions asked or answered? I'm guessing it will be sometime after that one year windows to upgrade to the free official release version has ended.

    You got a good look at the new version of Windows pre-release, but now its time to get back to official business. Rollback and upgrade to RTM before it's too late.

    That is... unless you have Windows XP or simply cannot qualify to take the free upgrade path offered to the Official RTM version of Windows. If that's the case, by all means remain in the Insider Beta Tester Program and continue to run beta release software versions of the less buggy official version.
