Re: Windows 10 Preview!

No big surprise since MS announced Win9 (now Win10). Business and consumers alike will likely wait for PC's with Win10 if they can.

I should really try the preview on my HDD raid array (not as gutsy as Pentium4 ).

I don't know what MS should really do for pricing except for one thing - XP upgrades, especially enterprise and embedded versions, should be free. It's in MS' interest to wipe that old junk out!

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

I'm running the Windows 10 Preview on a spare ssd drive.
Installed off a thumb drive, install was fast/uneventful. Then
I used me ASUS install dis to install needed drivers.
Its been running smooth so far. In fact I'm using W-10
now as I type this post. I for one like W-8.1 it proved to
be a solid os for me. This W-10 looks ok, I just need to
learn the new tricks that come with W-10...

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

I installed it on a spare SSD I had laying around a couple of days ago. The install went good, no problems. It seems stable enough. Like Skully said it will take a while to learn the tricks of the os.

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

Win10 won't be out until Q3'15. Should be cheapest to upgrade from Win8.1.

That would be a surprise. I don't want the upgrade version though. I want to be able to install on a fresh drive.

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

I got to do some research and see if their new notifications applet will work with Outlook.

Win10 looks promising, may try this before I bail to Apple.

finally got around to installing the Tech Preview this weekend...pretty stable for a beta...definitely something I could see myself 'upgrading' to...major improvement over Windows 8 which I skipped...I still prefer Windows 7 overall but with all the under the hood improvements with 8.1 and 10 I might make the switch...maybe...might not have a choice either as DX12 will be a W10 exclusive
