Windows 7: Microsoft silently preparing your PC for Win 10

Nah...Microsoft is blinding us deep to hide how much its new OS is beautiful, they're so shy to users!!

Anyway looking forward that one coming along. My main concern is not this new OS but the hardwares i'll have to choose and the money it will cost me to build new one. I far prefer be smokescreened now, feels safer than after buying components.

I hear you a new build and a clean install of win-10 is more realistic for me too,
Possibly a new oem of win-8 but I would prefer to just out right purchase 10 and skip 8 all together or wiping out a perfectly good win-7 64 bit for a "free upgrade to 10" which doesn't sound free to me

If I decide to get Win 10 (a mighty big if that keeps getting bigger), I would also prefer to buy it and do a clean install rather than lose a Win 7 license, especially my two Ultimate licenses.

I wish I liked windows 10, but I don't. I tried the previews. I like the W7 classic desktop, if they really considered windows 7 users a priority they would of keep that. No real clean cut answer if windows 10 will become subscription based after 1 or 5 years just a lot of speculation & guesses from tech articles. I pay enough to my internet service provider, I can't pay another fee to Microsoft.

There our some reports that you have to give up your key, once you upgrade to window 10 you won't be able to re-install or go back to windows 7 legally. I really don't how that would work with an oem slp install.


As far as voting, I should have a right not to vote as well.

Well one thing is for sure I liked 10 more than 8,
I believe I liked 8.1 more than 10 but still had start8 installed so I doubt I would buy another start10 substitute for win-10 when I already have start8 being unused now :/

So ? it is a dilemma I'll have to make my mind up on eventually being my 8 key is also a upgrade I'll probably give it away and inform them it may throw a raspberry because I have used it on this machine with Brink's Bat file to allow it to be used without a existing os to cover up :/

Honestly, why on earth are you still using Windows? Nice attitude from an MVP.
Now you are getting personal. That's not good. There is no badge in the world that can keep me from expressing a clear and independent view. I am not on the MS payroll. I have been in this business for too long to get fooled by smokescreens.

Windows 10 will be a great OS - for those devices where it works best. But the desktop user will get the short end of the stick and that is deplorable. Most users will not know what they are up to before they are in the middle of it.
