Windows 7: Windows 7 to Windows 9 Upgrade to Cost $30 – Report

Win7 SP1 + Ultimate 64 bit

I will wait and see how it performs in REAL world terms. MS is always quick to show all the bells and whistles before they have taken the OS for a decent ride. When it hits, I will devote a machine, a nice SSD and 16gb ram. Then we shall see.

Ha another service I couldn't use Comcast
I personally had to remove my cable card to make room for a graphics card something I did need opposed to something that I didn't need
I'm glad people use wmc I never found any use for it personally but it was a source of a computer wakeup at 2a.m. that bugged the heck out of me for a few weeks

Windows 8.1 OEM 64-bit

My wife has a Dell 1545 laptop with Windows 7 on it. If Microsoft offers a good upgrade deal to Windows 10 we would buy it. Same goes for my Dell 17r laptop with Windows 8.1.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

I use to dual boot other operating systems to try out other OS's but have gone the way of using virtualbox as a way of testing. It is very nice to use and I now am looking to try it with ms 10. Though I don't believe that 10 will blow the doors like 7 has done off anything ms has produced in the past. I am willing to try it. And would spend $30 -$35 to do it.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

Windows 10 as it now is could be a decent upgrade from W7. You get a built in Virtual disc mounter (no more 3rd part apps to create these - useful too as a lot of modern machines don't even HAVE internal DVD's any more) and a decent built in security system.

You will get eventually a lot of apps that will work the same whether on your phone or on your computer and for people running VM's the HYPER-V system is a really good step in the right direction -- works pretty well too. HYPER-V is included in W8 / W8.1 and W10.

You'll find as a W7 user you won't have to "Unlearn" anything to use W10 -- W8 was a real dog for a lot of people who weren't interested in touch devices - and in any case I find even on a mobile phone once you've got a load of apps installed endless tile scrolling is just a PAIN.

You'll also get guaranteed updates rather than being thrust out on a limb -- I believe some people are already calling W7 "The new XP". You can of course STAY with W7 but I would think that at 30 USD the upgrade will be worth it.

Another nice feature is that you can use STORAGE SPACES making any form of RAID unnecessary on a Home computer and the great thing about Storage spaces is that unlike RAID you can combine HDD's of DIFFERENT capacities to form part of a storage pool -- multiple storage spaces are supported too.

If you are happy then stay on W7 but if the upgrade is only 30 USD (might even be less) IMO when W10 is released next year it would be a no brainer to go for it.

In any case why not try it out on a VM - it's free to download - even the enterprise version and lasts until April. You can also mess around with the excellent Windows to Go feature as well. (Download the ENTERPRISE trial version for this feature).

All it costs to at least TRY it is a bit of download bandwidth, some HDD space and a little bit of time to install it. If you really don't like it NOTHING lost - but at least HAVE A GO. !! Where's your curiosity -- don't rely on some no nothing journalist's mouthings.
