Windows 10 free update

Tech fanatics (or people who don't like Windows 8/8.1), rejoice... If you have Win7 or above, you can install a FREE version of Win10!

Get started here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...eview-download

New features include the return of the classic start menu layout, voice command with Cortana (similar to Siri and Google), Idiot Explorer being replaced by the much-faster Spartan (I haven't used IE since 2009 except to download Chrome or Firefox so we shall see), plus other changes:

Installing now!

They are giving a year free, but I heard that future builds will model off OS X where it's a free upgrade.

Windows 10 is going to be a completely free upgrade for anyone with Wins 7 SP1 or 8.1. They are allowing 1 year for people to upgrade then I guess you'll have to pay for it after that. Micro$oft is looking at the OS as a service now, hence the reason for it being free.....for the moment......don't know if I'll jump on that band wagon just yet......

How stable is the "Technical Preview"?

I have 8.1 on my Surface Pro 3 and I feel it's perfectly fine (After the Windows Classic Start Menu Shell)

Most things work OK... Except HitManPro isn't working the right way, and Avast isn't working at all, so I reverted to Avira out of a short list of AVs that work (I refuse to trust built in MSE, and AVG has a high failure rate in lots of computers I've worked on lately). Cortana voice search also only works when it feels like it and it takes a few steps to initialize it, the WLAN won't work well on your first try until you restart it, but everything is good.
