Classic Shell on Windows 10 Preview Build 9926
Yep, I'll be sticking with Classic Shell myself. I was wondering if a new version would be needed.

Updating updates for Windows 10 via multiple sources other than Microsoft Update. Multiple sources as in P2P capability i.e.  to download updates for the operating system from other PCs on your own internal network or from PCs either on your network or over the Internet.

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for all users worldwide
This even applies to pirated copies of Windows 7 and 8.1

That surprised me at first but after some thought, it makes a lot of sense. The more people using Win 10, the more that will be tempted by the Windows Store and all the apps. It will open up a new market. Especially in China where the large majority of all software, not just Windows, is pirated.

It should also eliminate much of the malware installed when using pirated software. :)

Well seehow good the security of Windows 10 really is, That Microsoft put Defender back in the task bar might be an indication that
Microsoft might have planned something for it. :)

Which i would really appreciate cause 18 percent of people use Defender/MSE, followed right by Avast (OPSWAT)

I installed the latest build in a dual boot with 8.1 and it works okay with a few bugs. The Mail app would not install until I did a powershell fix I found through google.  I also had to give my Win 8.1 partition a drive letter through Disk Management before it would be recognized.

All the drivers installed by Windows seem to be working fine except that one is from 2010. It's for the printer/scanner but it works fine.

The update apprears to have a problem with my audio on my Dell Inspiron 17.
I can plug in an external speaker or use a headset but it can't find or update the dell audio drivers.  :'(
