    No, from what I have read the update is free and will remain that way for those you update in the first year. Also when you buy a new computer with Win10 installed the updates from now on will be free.
    From what I read Microsoft did not sell very many copies of any OS. The main income was from new computer installs. The free update will save them money in the long run by having everyone on the same OS version. IT will also be better for software companies since they will not have to be backward compatible. When the present life time runs out on all OS versions except Win10 the overhead of the OS will be a lot smaller and the same goes for all software. New software written will only run on the latest version of Win10 or whatever the latest update is. In the long run it SHOULD be better for everyone. (I did say SHOULD so no bashing of Windows or Microsoft needlessly)

    Re: windows 10

    For the consumer market, Win10 will mainly be a case of you get the update whether you want/like it or not.
    Business users will be less stuck with this option, as updating anything can potentially break s/w which in some companies could be critical to health and safety.

    I'm backing up my current Win7 machines so that I can rollback to them should Win10 not be to my liking (though having been through numerous iterations of the beta testing I don't see it being an issue).
    Just one XP machine to upgrade to Win7 and then that's good to go too

    Now if only Nikon would do something similar.... a free upgrade of the core of their product (in this case camera body) to the latest and greatest
    Happy days would be all round

    it will be all about the apps, as android and apple have proved that's where the revenue is, and if uve got a less than legit copy your less likely to spend on the legit apps -if your legit your more likely to spend, and if u e got older versions there's compatability issues..

    @donaldjledet Lower right side of task bar. See #29

    All it now says is that I will be notified when my copy is ready for download/install when I check on status. I had not had the reserve icon until today.
