No, if the win7 installation is already upgraded to win10.

I am getting Windows 10 immediately, mainly because my computer has around 30 viruses, and because of the looks of Windows 10. I will still be able to use Windows 7 if I fix my laptop, because we all get that feeling when you updated your iPhone from iOS 6 to iOS 7 you missed iOS 6 and you wanna use it again.

That's the first time I've ever heard of a reason to upgrade to 10 to transfer 30 viruses to it

You definitely want to clean the viruses BEFORE you upgrade otherwise the viruses may simply be carried forward to the new OS.

This is an "in place" upgrade" not a clean install. It would be different if you would be doing a clean install.

When it gets to Windows 10 SP1 I may consider it. Why wouldn't you expect it to be buggy to start with. As I mentioned software compatibility remains an issue for me. As one example, I still run Office 2007 (3 licenses) and it is perfectly OK but will W10 accept it???

Michael, Office 2007 + Pro work fine for me on Windows 10, no slower than with Windows 7.

You can trial in a Dual Boot a Clean Install Windows 10 Technical Preview and continue to track the various builds indefinitely. My bet is at some point this will be converted to a free license without having to give up Windows 7 at all. To maximize this possibility I'd use a MS account for sign in and offer Insider feedback. This can be done causally in spare time to get a first-hand impression of the OS.

This was my intention in October but I never really went back to Windows 7 because the bugs did not ruin the plain fact it is a somewhat better OS for my desktop needs. I also took a liking to several apps whose tiles update News, Weather, Mail, People, and Skype at a glance on my Start menu, something even Apple can't do.

I understand that a new OS from Microsoft is indeed an exciting event. I had been looking forward to it for many months. But at this point, I must reiterate what many have said here and elsewhere: It behooves the wise to watch and wait. For myself, I do not even own a single hand-held device. That's right, I don't even have a cell phone. I use my desktop, a 6 year-old Gateway, just for everyday internet stuff, forums, news and such. I own a year-old computer as well, but that is exclusively for music creation, and is almost never online. I could conceivably keep it for the rest of my life on W7 Pro, along with Sonar, my DAW, which, interestingly, has also recently rechristened itself as Sonar X, and gone to a monthly subscription model. But my version works fine, and along with W7, I could use it for the rest of my life without updating (I'm old enough that this makes sense). I really like the beauty of both Vista and Seven, even finding it inspirational. So, at least for now, I have decided against W10. That could change, if fellow composers report that it is far superior in handling audio, but I think that unlikely. I therefore look forward to many more years of joyful interaction with W7. Look before you leap!

Yea office 2007 small business has no issues with 10tp that I noticed
Also no issues with 8 or 8.1
I've been using 64 bit 10tp in most all iso's since testing started,
I've clean installed every iso
Worst I've noticed is the windows 10 updating seems a heck of a lot faster just clean installing than living through the slow update downloading :/

Weird

After using my W10 b10240 VM for a week, the mouse and RAM usage issues seem to have fixed themselves.

The last few times I've started my VM:
  • The mouse has worked correctly
  • RAM usage has dropped by ~300 MB
