    I doubt I'll update without having a decent downgrade option for my OEM edition Windows 8.1.

    Simply have an image (backup) of the 8.1 before migrating to the Upgrade & know its Key. Once you have the Upgrade and are running Windows 10, future Updates will be delivered to you.

    The Upgrade is free to 8.1 owners for the 1st 12 months following the release of Win10 GA.

    Your thought has merit. But, after running Windows 10 through the past 4 months, personally, I would not have any desire to revert to 8.1

    Have a strong preference towards Windows 10. Very easy to like it.

    Hmmm... That's right. Even a few of my friends have switched over to Windows 10 and are finding it awesome.

    That's nice & most interesting. I do hope you mean they are testing it & not , actually, literally, switched over. It is awesome, indeed. Will only be more so by the time the GA is released, too.

    I'm anxious to test the new browser in a soon to come Build, too!

    If this happens chrome OS will be just a brick in Windows.

    I'm sure you mean browser. But, what do you mean by "Will be just a brick in Windows"? The expression is not familiar to me.

    And, not being picky but, it's not "if" it IS coming.

    Early this morning I got up and started a download of Windows 10, Pro, Technical Preview, Evaluation Copy, 64bit.

    As I installed it on a spare hard drive in my Desktop PC, I wrote down every step, to get an install that was free of a Microsoft Account or Password.

    My PC is 64 bit compatible, but several times today, while setting up the OS, my PC just shut down, without warning. So there must be some little incompatibility between Windows 10/64 and my ten year old motherboard.

    I've never had that problem with any other OS, including Windows 8.1, both 32 and 64 bit.

    The 32 bit version works great though, and when the time comes, if I'm still alive, I may be running Windows 10/32.
    The 9926 version comes up Activated and is very stable, and it will even run 16 bit software, from the early 90's.
    It's a Keeper!

    A man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.
    Backup! Backup! Backup! Ghost rocks!

    TM,

    Here's probably the reason (1st line under "Important Notes"):

    System requirements - Microsoft Windows

    Yes, sounds so. Have heard of a # of cases of it on older, not very robust gear but, 10 yrs is a stretch, maybe, eh?

    But, certainly could account.

    And, on the bright side, have the x86 going

    Nice to see another, there are many, sharing enthusiasm towards Windows 10. It's darn nice, indeed!.

    Cheers,
