Default Just upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro.

Yeah so as the title says just upgraded to 8.1 Pro, Really happy with it so far ... Defiantly an improvement over Win7, Feels snappier, Wasn't a fan of the missing start button so a bought a program called Start8 its an amazing little tool that gives you a windows 7 style starts button so now i get all the benefits of windows 8 but with that classic start button we all know and love.

Good stuff, I like 8.1 as well and 100% agree that Start8 is must have.

I've been wondering, I know Win 10 is gonna be a free upgrade for Win 7/8.x users for the first year of release BUT what will happen if sometime after that year is up i decide to format my system with my Win 8.1 disk? ... Will i still get that upgrade back to 10 or will i then have to buy Win 10?

There's no actual answer on that yet from anyone in MS Partner Support.

I hope the way it goes is that we all get a Windows 10 iso download and a new product key.
