I downloaded the Windows 10 beta in a VM, but not here. However apparently some update added this. If I click on it, I see this:
I hadn’t been reading about Windows 10 too much. Mostly I want it for the copy/paste in the command line, but apparently I need to download it to get the upgrade. I hadn’t heard this before, and I was concerned.
If I click the reserve upgrade, I see this:
I don’t need a download now. Apparently I’ll get an automatic one when the OS goes to RTM, which is fine. I assume I can install it elsewhere, but perhaps I’m limited to this device?
It’s hard to tell. This will be an interesting process. I went through the FAQ and it appears I could upgrade later. The upgrade I reserved is for this device, so I’ll need to do this separately on my laptop.
A new process for Windows, and I’m interested to see how it works. I’ve seen a few MS people have issues with Windows 10 in demos, so I’m a little concerned about upgrading now, but I am looking forward to seeing the new OS in July or August.
