    Thank you DavidY for the post.

    It is back to seven for me. I don't want to keep testing or let 10 consume a key. I only have one.


    I wonder how many insiders will drop out of the program.

    :)

    Update

    You have apparently chosen in Settings>Updates and Security>Updates>Advanced Settings to receive Insider builds. Thus your Insider preview was upgraded as was mine recently.

    Did you think that this was now free Upgraded to RTM? That would only be the case if you originally upgraded to Insider preview from a copy of Windows 7 or 8.1.

    Windows 10 Pro Licsense Question

    Make sure you buy a PC with Windows 10 preinstalled and then enable getting Insider Builds at Settings>Updates and Security>Updates>Advanced Options>Get Insider Builds. This way you can sample Insider Builds on the Fast or Slow (more stable) ring and still
    have a licensed Windows 10 copy.

    Not me, I will take the update on my Win 8.1 side and keep my Insider version going. As I said before, give me an ISO so I can do a clean install, and I'm good.

    Looks like I'll keep all of my Win 7 (and one Win 8.1) licenses.
    July 30th I'll roll back the Win10 or maybe try another Linux distribution. *Nerd

    Planned all along to update the desktop and the two traveling laptops, expected to use the 8.1 keys. The Dell D630 will keep on the fast ring. I have been running it as up-grader from Win8.1.1 since Win10122 felt stable enough.
    Live long and Prosper,


    btw, the D630 started life as XP Pro. in 2007

    Well,, I'll just simply use my Win8.1 license and go get a copy of Win10 opting out of the insider program. It's been fun but I just want to live with Win10 and no longer play with previews.

    This has been a poorly explained mess form the start. It now seems like the sensible option is to not stay with the insider program after July 29th.

    Well,, this was likely written by a group of people and I still want to see a more detailed explanation of what the plan is.

    This is turning into a 3 ring circus. I might just fork over the $169 and then I can do whatever the H*%$ I want to!

    From what I have read in this OP you will not loose a key. I will stay with the preview build until they run out of builds.

    They don't say what happens if you want to opt out a build or two or five after the RTM, what if in October I want to have just W10 do I reinstall 8.1 and do the upgrade, what if it's a year am I then SOL? This is more of a fly by night exercise than a planned program. They didn't know what they wanted to do when this program started and still have not showed the ability to plan ahead and explain the possibilities clearly.

    I won't. I'll continue to test and also give up keys for Windows 7 and/or 8.1. I see no difference between upgrading Windows Vista to Windows 7 and upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10. Either way, if you acquire an upgrade package (Win 7 upgrade package or Win 10 upgrade package (free upgrade), your older product key becomes invalid.

    I would be willing to wager money that the very vast majority of folks won't even blink as their systems upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. *Smile

    Oh, come on. Really? They also didn't say what happens if you uninstall during a full moon. How many different ways can you analyze this?

    It seems clear to me. *ANY TIME* after July 29th, if you opt out of Insider builds, you will need a valid license. Either because you upgraded during the first year, or because you bought it. If you don't have a valid license, you need to acquire one or go back to your old OS. It's really that simple.
