Windows 8.2 = Windows 10
It seems Windows 8.2 will be called Windows 10. (What happened to 9?)
As I read, it seems 10 is really only a minor revision of Windows 8/8.1 and should be called 8.2; but, to distance it from Windows 8 MS will call it 10. IMHO: This version is what MS should have released originally as 8. Again, IMHO, Windows 8 is another Vista like flop.

Does anyone know if 10 can be applied to Win 7 as an upgrade (versus clean install.)????

I know a clean install, is best from the standpoint of getting rid of junk in the Registry. However, for me, a clean install would cause me to lose some software like Acrobat, photoshop Elements, and Roxio Creator.

RE: Windows 8.2 = Windows 10
It's suppose to have two front ends; one for the touchscreen and one for the normal desktop which M$ forgot about in Win8. They are taking a marketing ploy from the early days of Windows. In the original Windows, users were met with UAE's (Unrecoverable Application Error). When M$ released Windows 3.1 they advertised that there were no more UAE's. That was because they renamed them GPF's (General Protection Fault).

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

Yes, Windows 7 can be upgraded to Windows 10 Technical Preview (aka beta). Microsoft is using Windows Update to perform the upgrade, but you have to use a patch to make the beta show up in Windows Update.
