    LOL man all I did was mention the deal MS had for W8 back when, lol, and it took off, I hope no one thinks its been put out by MS that 10 is the same deal. I said I "hope" they would do that again, but so far i'm not sure what the deal is going to be.

    Will it be a low ball $ for XP/Vista users to get them on track?, will it be a low ball $ for W8.1.1 users cause they are on track?, or will they have another 15$ "pre order" deal for all? If they do I sure hope they offer it as a "ISO" download this time.

    If MS for some reasn decides to offer it as a free upgrade to 8.1.1 users, I wonder if the retail W8 key would still activate it.

    Someone with a higher pay grade and availability to the MS insiders might be able to get better info, I'm not even aware of the release date of this 10 thing yet. If that was known maybe any pre deal type thing date could be somewhat calculated.

    I hopefully will get windows 10 for my seminars next year depending on when it comes out, then I will raffle off 8.1 if I still have them :P

    I'm very confused by a lot of comments here. Why would you abandon 7 when it looks so much better than 9?

    That is a matter of opinion

    LOL.... I even prefer Vista's looks, however I will say I like 8.1 now that I have been running the evaluation edition on a VM. All I wanted to know is that I would have a supported path to run my applications after Vista's extended phase support runs out in 2017. And at that point, I will run 8.1 until 2023.

    But yes, I think there's a lot more hoopla about Windows 10 than justified. The Start Menu implementation is rather lackluster if you ask me. It's not as customizable. Give me back IOBit StartMenu 8 or Classic Shell anytime. And the only other improvement seems to be slightly in speed. But turn off a lot of services that help pick up the speed in 8.1.

    I just don't get why everyone is soooooo worked up over it. And yes I know that the TP represents early days, so I should give it a chance. (but that may also apply the other way around - those that love the TP may hate the RTM; we'll see)

    It's all speculation - who knows what will really happen? Nobody!

    Fair enough, but what's wrong with speculation and wonder? After all, until the TP was release two weeks ago, the entire board's existence was based on speculation.

    Edit!!! Silly me, and I thought I was posting on Ten Forums...lol, but the new OS was indeed being discussed here.
