Supposedly we have a year to decide. I'll need someone to tell me it's better than 8.1, first. I don't hate 8.1, but I don't like it, either.

Windows 10 is excellent, no need to stay on 7

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

Personally I like Windows 8.1.
Sure, what they did with the Start button was really dumb but that was fixed in Win10.
Win8.1 is lightning fast when compared to Win7. I never saw my computer opening and closing so fast since I installed Win8.1.
Sure, after a couple of months, due to all the crap we install and is installed in the background while we surf the net, the computer becomes sluggish but that something that one gets used too.

I did installed Win10 beta on my old laptop to see how things were going but the damn thing was always crashing after a few minutes working with it but I did like the new features. The old Start button is back

It's just a new concept for Win that we are not used too. Like everything else, it takes some time but after a few weeks one starts to see the advantages...

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

I installed win 10 on an old laptop too, and in one of my desktop, about one month ago, it work very good, it's fast and never crashes, it's better than win 8.1 pro.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

License key of Windows 7

Maybe someone with more tech insight can answer my question.

When I upgrade from windows 7 to 10 for free and then, for example, my motherboard need to be changed, is it true that I will loss my Windows 7 license key and I need to buy a new Windows 7 or 10 license?

Thanks
Michael

Why don't you contact Microsoft Support?

I will do when time is coming (July).

Right now I did understand that all official Win 10 FAQ forums are maintained by private persons and NOT from Microsoft.
And they don't know either.

What I found is this Frequently Asked Questions: Windows 10 - Microsoft Community

Personally I hate the tiles, it was made for mobile, I am sticking with 7 forever. But your mileage might vary...

Windows 10 vs Windows 7: Should you upgrade?

Quotes from the comments:

A few questions.

1. As a Win 7 ultimate x64 user, will I be upgraded to Win 10 Pro?
2. Do I need to reinstall all my applications once I upgrade?
3. Can I go back Windows 7 if I don't like Windows 10?
4. If I format my machine, how do I reinstall 10 without a disc? Will a usb installer be sufficient?
5. Does Win 10 play well with dual OS setups?

1. Yes.
2. No. I upgraded in place and everything continued to work fine, better in fact.
3. Apparently, some people have done this and it worked. I would probably try to find a way to image the machine to a backup drive first, just to be sure.
4. Apparently you can download a USB installer and use your previous key for Windows 7 or 8.
5. I don't have dual OS, so I haven't tested it, but people are doing it online and it seems to work.

----------------------------

My suggestion to all that want to know if you want it before you sign up for the upgrade is: Go to www.vmware.com download the VMware player (its free) install it then go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso download the Win 10 demo and test it out for yourself.
