    I've decided not to jump to 10 right away, pretty happy with 8.1 and Classic Shell for now. And the automatic updates on a capped usage ISP doesn't make me too happy.

    Best not to I think until it comes July 29 & see what happens.
    I want to keep all installed programs & files & folders.

    Until it rolls out I won't know if I can or not.

    I have paid for programs & I don't want to have to reinstall them.
    A pain in the butt.

    Still a lot of members in Windows 7 forum as of today. Can not see this forum dying, just most that are upgrading will be spending more time there to a certain point, may even still ask questions here when doing the upgrade from Win 8.1.

    Thought if it is an upgrade should be able to keep all of that. Just never liked idea of upgrade over another OS, like idea or ability to clean install this upgrade in some way even though have to reinstall all software again.

    Think numbers here are showing this forum is dying down a bit. Compare amount here to Windows Ten forum, but because of the official launch and all the questions now.

    Regardless of the millions using using new OS'es, like Windows 10, there are still billions and million of people using now called "old" systems, like Windows 7, Windows Vista, Even XP and etc. There's even a small minority of people that use Windows 3.1 and 95/98. But that's not gonna be for a long time. So yeah, in a way we are dying.

    I'll continue to login in here everyday as I have several Win 8.1 machines that I don't plan to upgrade to 10. Right now I have a mix of Win 7, Win 8 and Win 10 machines.
