    W10 Pro (desktop), W10 (laptop), W10 Pro (tablet), W10 (laptop)

    Started out with the Win 8 previews on a VM. Clean installed Win 8 on a VM once it was released, then upgraded that VM to Win 8.1. Then I bought an 8" tablet that came with Win 8.1. Since then I have gotten a 12" tablet and a laptop both with Win 8.1.

    Windows 7 Pro x 2/Windows 10 Home/10 Pro/Windows 10 TP

    I bought an HP Pavilion Elite m9458f Desktop PC about 6 1/2 years ago that came preinstalled with Windows Vista Home and it was replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate the 1st day Windows 7 was available for sale. After testing Windows 8 throughout it's development and purchasing the $15 dollar upgrade offer to Windows 8.0 Pro at launch the computer was upgraded again from Windows 7.

    I will probably upgrade the OS for a 4th time for free when Windows 10 becomes available, hopefully this machine will last a few more years and has served me well.

    Purchased my current HP machine in December 2013 with 8.1 OEM. I work on a five year plan: every five years or so I scrap what I have and buy everything new (hardware and operating system current at the time). So, I have gone from W98 > XP > Vista > 8.1. My next system will probably have W? in 2019. :-)
