I just said you can put different Windows list with different Order of Windows versions to get any result. I mean lists, more then 1 list.

PS: I guess Win 7 can run 14-15 years on 1 PC like Win XP for some Users.

In 2013 i have seen Win XP PCs in a company which runs with Drivers; for Mainboard & Graphic cards, i had no chance to ues system control; from 2002 & 2003. However, the company was bankrupt and empty before I building that in which it was looked from the inside.
I guess they used the Default drivers from Win XP SP1/2 for 10 years.
And most PC works.

Well sure, if the hardware and software falls within the OS's support range you could be using XP in 2050 and have a good time, or Win 3.11 for that matter.

Different Use Cases and Targets between Costumers and Companies. i like to bring into the discussion. I mean profit targets. I speak now more about Economy things.

I for example:

From 2003-2010 i used Win XP, 1 OEM version.

Since 2010-today i use Win 7.

Since Beginning of 2015 1 Dual Boot system with Win 7 32bit and Linux Mint 17 64bit.

Default Re: Windows 10 Is free? Get hype?... Maybe?

I'll see what features it has first and if there's any significant reason to upgrade, then I might.

For now I've been pretty happy with Windows 8.1. With the classic start mod it's really not much different from Windows 7, I sometimes forget I even have apps and stuff since I spend the entirety of my time always in desktop view only. It also starts up really fast - when it can (restarting is still just as slow if not slower than before) - which is a huge plus on a laptop with a naturally slow HDD.

Not a fan of the whole metro and apps trend at all though, it could die for all I care since there's no reason whatsoever to use apps in desktop use.

No Metro GUI is the incarnation of Satan created from MS.

Like the Exodus of the Jews from Israel.

Like a Nuclear Rocket thrown at you.

Like a Asteroid which hits a Planet directly.

Like the Alligator which attacks you.

Like the Moment of your Death under Water 20 seconds after a Shark Attack.

Like a Knockout Punch in a Boxing Match.

If performance is good and it has better resource management, as well as a way to disable metro and other 'mobile' features then I suppose I could upgrade. But i hated 8 and 8.1 and if it is too much like that then I'm less inclined to do so. MS needs to learn to let their customers decide how they want to use their operating systems. Options are important.

There actually is a Windows version of Openbox as a full explorer shell replacement, but it doesn't work very well

I heard good things about react OS but I kinda think it's a fools errand, at this point it works a bit like wine without having to worry about which distro you're using.

I didn't like reactOS. It didn't really live up to what it was supposed to be.

ReactOS tries to rebuild original Win XP, even .exe files should work.

They copy a lot of things from Wine.

Default Re: Windows 10 Is free? Get hype?... Maybe?

The whole win 10 will be free for 'the life of the device' means that it will be like an oem copy:
You can only install it on that machine, and no other machines. It is a 1 machine license only.
But, if you have a 3-machine license, you can install win10 on all 3 different machines.

I am wondering if it will be heavily tied to hardware, like, if you change the video card, it will expire. Or, change video card and cpu, it will expire. I wouldnt think that it would apply to dvd drives and hard drives, as those are the most swapped hardware ever.

I am actually thinking win 10 will be a good os (I have minimally tested with it though), like win 7 was.
MS heard the people about what they wanted and didnt want loud and clear, both with vista and 8.
But, they still say, ok we will fix/revert those 3 items, but they leave in a lot of junk that didnt get the big stink raised about them (or, not AS big a stink), and they still come out ahead.

I really dislike 8 and 8.1, although I just recently had to install 8.1 on my new system. I will def be upgrading to 10 though.

Another thing:
This WILL be an UPGRADE.
MS and Upgrades for OS dont always pan out well.
It is always better to do a clean install, than install an os over another earlier os, as there are still remnants of the other os left over, and not all bugs are easy to find when doing this.

Anyway, long discourse over.

No, I assume it'd be the same as it is on all other versions of Windows - you call to this automated Microsoft license phone number and you get a thing where you have to enter a number..

Doing this you can upgrade hardware but also move the license to a different computer

Yep, it did appear, and yep, I did reserve it. Though the FAQ says only for "genuine Windows", so I guess pirates don't get it then?
