    It is a shame "Spartan" is not released to try yet. I'd like to see it. Otherwise Windows 10 looks pretty good so far.

    I doubt you'll find existing features become chargeable. More likely there will be new ones we have to pay for or Siri will not work terribly well. (I know).

    W8.0/8.1 seems to be the new Vista and W10 will be the next W7. I suspect part of the problem with negativity towards W8 is that some budget machines are under-powered memory-wise, like in the Vista days when Vista machines were rolled out with only 1 gig memory when it needed 2 ...W8.1 needs 3+ and 2gig machines are being rolled out.

    You could use google if you wanted. To answer you though, Yes, Yes, No.
    Groovy. I'm trying to think of an app I can create that takes advantage of "live contents" that I would actually need/use. Can't seem to think of any at the moment. Metro is a cool idea, but only if you're on a tablet and interacting with it requires a large clickable surface...

I kind of feel Windows will abandon people using Windows 8.1 if they don't make the upgrade to Windows 10. I just want my computer to act like Windows 7 but faster. Any thoughts? Are there any people with older Windows 7 machines thinking of making the upgrade?
    Well I have upgraded an Asus P7P55D -Pro computer to Win 8.1, ASUS doesn't support Win 8 for it. I have been able to get everything to run on it. I had to trick Window 8.1 into running some of the Asus Software to run. Otherwise it runs fine. I learned about ClassicShell early on and how to eliminate metro and start screen I will have upgraded MB/CPU on that Workstation before 10 goes mainstream. Personally I like the power that Classic Shell gives you over the start menu I'll probably keep it even moving to 10 later on. I haven't experienced anything negative at all.
    My upgrade paths have been pretty standard I think. From early windows to Windows 95, what a struggle that was. I have bought 1 copy of ME installed it and uninstalled the next day and never looked back on that one. To me Windows 2000 was a miracle I stayed on it until XP was at SP3 Skipped Visa except for a notebook I got stuck with. Win 7 is great, Win 8.1 is great with tweaks win 10 remains to be seen. I think I'll wait until they have the free upgrade to 10 pro before I update my ageing notebook.

    Can anyone confirm? Is this how the Start Menu looks and behaves on the most latest build? What ever happened to the cool hierachy structure, Windows-7-like structure of "all apps" I saw on an early video of W10 start menu?

    To be honest, the start menu in the above vid looks more f****d up than the W8 all apps screen...

    I couldn't get 10 running on VMware Player and gave up weeks ago. Such a loser.

    Kept locking up my laptop.

    Might be because I am on my phone. I have turned my computers off for the night. I will try and open it in my phone's browser and see if it will work that way.

    Safari (Phone's mobile browser) let me watch it. I think Windows 10 is going to be a hit.
