So... Windows 10.

When I get an intel 750/samsung 950, I'm considering upgrading to Windows 10 but how legit is it?

I mean, sure, Windows 10 was most likely the last true Windows launch and they will just keep working and upgrading that one, a bit like Adobe went away from CS1, CS2 etc. naming scheme and just go with Adobe CC for their creative suite so there is no excuse to wait for the next one which will never come.

Either way, I feel that Windows 10 is just an answer to the critique Win 8 got so it feels like Windows 10 is kinda slimmed down and perhaps even limited, at least out of the box.

Right now I have a legit copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and I feel that I will be just getting some random limited freeware by upgrading to Windows 10, in other words a downgrade.

What's the deal with that paid version of Windows 10? Will I just be getting a "trial" version with limited features if I upgrade?

On top of that, is there any reason to upgrade to Windows 10 at this point other than "having the latest" ?

You have full acess to the Windows 10 RTM if you have a legit copy of Windows 7.

The only downside is that if you ever change your motherboard your license is gone. But now it looks like you can activate it even with a Windows 7 key,so all you need to do is keep your key safe.

Okay, cool. Do I just grab Win 10 on Microsoft's website and put it on a stick/CD then?


Edit: Found the tool.

If you upgrade a legit copy of Windows 7 or 8 regardless if it's a retail or OEM, you get a equivalent full version of Windows 10 but only OEM which is permanently tied to your motherboard. That means if you decide to swap platform, your activation is no longer valid.
By buying a Windows 10 you get a retail copy which can be activated regardless of platform change (assuming you deactivated it on old system).
That's pretty much the only difference.

If there's a reason for upgrade - you decide. I'm pretty happy using my 8.1 enterprise for now.

P.S. I see I took my time typing yet again, damn it.

imo:
i see it as a no brainer for anyone using win 8.

i beta tested win 10 and couldn't wait to upgrade my 2 in 1.

my win 7 machines are staying with win 7.

you can revert back to win 7 up to a month after the upgrade.

You need to upgrade from your current OS with the "Media Creation Tool". In the process,Windows 10 will place the key in your motherboard,and then you can do a clean install if you want.

I would still recommend to hold out for upgrade until threshold 2 is released. It supposed to be out in november... 2nd... I recon?
