    I installed Win10 Tech Preview on a test PC yesterday and it installed quickly with no issues whatsoever. So far, so good!

    All right, well then that's cool. What about hierarchical folder organization in the new Start menu? Pardon my asking, I don't know if I've seen that yet, and somebody on another site was already complaining that it's a fail because that functionality is not present in the preview.

    Interesting article about Windows 10 preview and how Microsoft is logging data on how it's working on your computer, like any other test drive. They are looking over your shoulder:

    Microsoft clears the air on Windows 10 “keylogger”

    I was interested by this quote in the geek.com article:

    "If you’ve actually read through an EULA before — particularly one for a piece of software that’s still a work in progress — you know this is something companies do. Microsoft didn’t hide the fact that they were going to with the Windows 10 Technical Preview, either. It’s all right there in the EULA in plain English."

    Anyone want to venture a guess on the percentage of people running win10 that read that EULA. In this day and age where every bit of software has an EULA that you must read and agree to, it is most common practice to click "I agree" instantly and get on with using the software.

    My own guess is that readers of the EULA are in the less than 0.1% range.

    Any testing of win10 that involves the internet almost surely requires the entering of passwords. Which Microsoft now has keylogged.

    I'm just saying --

    I wonder how much this will cost as an upgrade to 8.1? it will be interesting because so many businesses have not converted yet to 8.1 and so many are still purchasing windows 7 Pro sp1.

    Well if not free to 8.1.1 than at least the same deal as with 8 would be fine, 15 bucks for pre orders

    Yeah that was the best deal I had seen from MS for a new OS lol, and it covered XP, Vista, and 7, I bought it just to have it if needed later cause they gave you so much time to put in your pre order, than when it was released, you put in the code they sent to D/L it. What I liked was ALL my programs I had on my 7 home premium were there after installing 8 pro, and after I got a couple 3rd party tools I had no problems with it.

    So I'd like to see something like that this time around too for 10

    btw, Got my CPA buddy to order it too, but funny is he never used it, his wife didn't like 8 so she kept 7 on her laptop. He still has the license laying around somewhere lolol.
