So unless you upgrade to windows 10 by July it'll cost you $119.00 USD MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price).
Microsoft isn't giving away Windows 10 for free. I'd like to know how they plan on getting that money back. Built in advertising? A subscription plan? Microsoft is a business and the first rule of Business Class 101 is to make money. There's also a huge class action lawsuit against Microsoft for forcing Windows 7/8 users to "upgrade". So you think Microsoft is just giving away a $119.00 software for free, no strings attached? Gimme a break.

I too am afraid that us, who were already fed up with constant nagging to upgrade and caved in, will feel the consequences somehow. Perhaps you guys are right and there will be more nagging to buy an upgrade to remove the ads... I guess we'll wait and see.

I've moved most of the PC's in my house to 10, peaceful so far.  In fact the only one I haven't done is my recording PC because I hear it doesn't play nice with The Sims 2.  I know how much of a Sims fan NoX is Posted Image

For purposes of experimentation only, I installed Windows 10 on one of my older PC's that had Win 7 on it.

Here's what my background looks like temporarily Posted Image

Here's what my Start Menu looks like.

Oh and I found this program that blocks a whole bunch of crap Microsoft tries to get from you.
Just click here It's a free program, so no worries about pirating. Unzip it into a folder as the program will extract several files.

MS might have you by the balls, but my balls or MS free. Here's an older article that answered my own question about Win10 being free from Digital Trends.

A. Windows 10 is a Massive ad for Windows Store.
I don't use the Windows Store, and I have a  program that blocks all ads and spying for now from Microsoft. Even if MS would create a workaround there's a way to manually go in and block ads.

B. Contra funnels users to Bing
I don't use Bing or Contra.

C. OneDrive (MS Cloud Service) is free until it's used up
With all of my external hard-drives, flash drives, and micros I have damn near 9 terabytes. Free space is NOT an issue.

D. Microsoft Office might be included but it's not free
My personal copy of MS Office 2014 still runs fine, I even get the occasional updates.

As a side note, Windows 10 doesn't support Windows Essentials anymore, Movie maker does still work assuming any of you use it. Also with Start10 gets rid of those crappy charms MS introduced in Win8, from those screen shots I posted in my other comment you can see it looks like I'm running windows 7. Not too shabby Posted Image I highly recommend clicking on the links provided if you use Win 10, you might thank me.

What? Where? I haven't got any single advertisement thus far. Default menu is pretty much what you want, and if you need more -> Welcome to RMB where you've got everything you need shortcut for.

You obviously didn't read the article I posted. I'd copy and paste the paragraph but, I feel I did enough.

I obviously did. Not a single advertisement was present to me from Microsoft store. So no points for conspiracy theory from me.
