Lasts one year only though.
I wonder if Windows is going subscription based...

As far as I've been reading, not "free for the first year", it's free to upgrade within the first year. Big difference in wording and I thought it would be subscription based. But Microsoft made it clear if you upgrade in the first year, there will be no cost after a year. There will only be a cost if you miss the 1-year free upgrade window.

"This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, wee will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost."

I am

I'll upgrade for sure. Nice to have the free option.

Oh wow, yeah, the wording I've heard makes it seem like it's only for a year.
Thanks for the correction.

I am

I will probably upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 if my test-run in a VM runs good! :o I skipped Win 8 and 8.1 because, while I ultimately could make Win 8.1 work satisfyingly with a few additional mods by that time Windows 10 was already on the horizon and seems to fix most of what I disliked about Win 8

Although I'll probably keep Win 7 and Win 10 in a dualboot just to be sure :P

And is there any more direct link to the preview or do I absolutely have to sign up for the Microsoft technical mubo-jumbo?^^;;

Also with that my lurker mode is officially over! Ehehe... xD

EDIT: Ooops okay sorry I found the link now :P

RE: Windows 10 Event Highlights
I'll upgrade if 10 doesn't have the issue 8.1 does with my wireless card. The driver 8.1 uses causes BSOD loops and trying to use the one for 8 or 7 doesn't work at all. So I'm hoping Toshiba doesn't decide to dick their customers with 10.

Oh dear that sounds annoying, I hope Toshiba will fix that even though I have to say from my personal experience they aren't too great with driver updates :/

And on another note, I couldn't really try Win10 in a VM, Vbox has no graphics driver extension for it yet :(

RE: Windows 10 Event Highlights
I went ahead and upgraded using the Insider program. Everything's working properly as far as I can tell. Had to reinstall my video driver and Sandboxie, and the wallpaper selector is jittery. Other than that, all is well.

I'm not Joom but from the 5 minutes I had it running in a VM, being able to search from the taskbar is one of my most wanted things :P

RE: Windows 10 Event Highlights
I decided to revert back to 7 for now. Thankfully, this has an option to do that if you decide to not want it. After some more use, the little bugs would show. Windows that had been closed would randomly reopen, old wallpapers would set themselves, the color scheme would randomly change, etc. Definitely needs more work before I can justify using it on daily bases.
