    Windows 8.1


    I am waiting for the update to go live and then I will check out Windows 10 on my desktop. I have seen some of the changes already but I have not been actively following Windows 10. Some of the update will be a surprise to me. I will probably spend a few days playing around and testing changes.

    I even checked for a key and have found one with ( you must know the program) and it is activated also wonder if this is leading up to our free version for being an insider. I am also going to try a clean install on a formated hard drive after the drop and I get the upgrade on my windows 8.1 systems so my old laptop is my tester system.

    Windows 8.1 (Update 1) Pro 64 bit


    Guys, I just received an email about what's going to happen on july the 29th when Windows 10 gets released.

    I've got one question and I'm sorry if this has been asked countless of times:

    Since I like reformatting my PC when a new Windows version is out, I was wondering if I'd be able to burn Windows 10 ISO on an USB disk, reformat my PC and then clean install Windows 10 from that USB disk WITHOUT installing Windows 8.1 first.

    Will this be possible? If so, will my Windows 8.1 key work on the Windows 10 key prompt?

    Gabe tweeted that clean installs will be allowed after you upgrade to Windows 10. What key you enter I don't know. My guess is you'll get a windows 10 key as part of the free upgrade.

    Ah, now that's relieving. So I'd have to upgrade first from Windows 8.1 to be able to do a clean reinstall of Windows 10 afterwards?
