    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10


    If you have core - you will get core 10
    if you have Pro - you will get Pro 10

    Not sure you can add Pro to 10 through add features with a 8 Pro pack.. (after the fact)

    So as suggested - you upgrade your oem core..
    reinstall oem factory core 8, add pro features - upgrade to 10 pro

    takes all of a few extra minutes to use RecImg to create a customrefresh.wim which can then be use to reinstall any version of 8 or 10 to that PC

    Question. If you have the "get windows 10" icon in the notification area it means you're eligible or does every windows user get that message ?

    eligible. When I clicked on 'reserve', the next screen said, you are eligible (eg: compatible). I then got an email to say they would get in touch by the release date.

    Just a thought is Micro$oft working with the NSA on Windows 10 free upgrades?

    Seems very suspicious to me that all Windows 7/8/8.1 users retail or OEM get a free upgrade to Windows 10 in the first year, that's basically 50% of OS market share if all Windows 7/8/8.1 users upgrade to Windows 10 and a lot of personal collected information Micro$oft could potentially sell to the US government.

    I'm suspecting some serious privacy concerns with Windows 10 worst than that of Windows 8/8.1 system wide SmartScreen Filter at least until the SP1 comes out for Windows 10 and the first year free upgrades are over.

    Maybe the NSA should hack us and learn security and learn how to prevent the Gov't from being hacked

    Just because your a paranoid doesn't mean they really aren't out to get you.
