Microsoft can only track your every move if you give them permission to do so. If you choose Express install you have effectively given that permision, but there is the choice of Custom install & with that there is the option of letting them see all or nothing, or anything in between. Basically it's down to you.

Good to know.  :t

These features are at the moment experimental. I assume that's not the case in the final version. Am I right?

It's 2014 and no any multi-tab feature in the console window.

Can't wait to see win10,just now digging into win7...Took me a while to find the tweaks and settings parts in win7. also learning about "Permissions"

Only thing I really like about upgrading is the adventure of finding out how to set it up the way I like.

I want to try Windows 10 in a test manner. By that I mean disconnect my main HD and connect an
auxiliary HD with Windows 10 installed. Put a few things on it and give it a whirl.
BUT Microsofts agreement sounds like I would be tied on an ant hill, in the broiling sun with honey
poured on me.
Is this method of testing Windows 10 permissible and feasible?

Yes, I disconnect my win7 drive and connect the win10 drive, a manual dual-boot  :biggrin:
You can still log on with a local account and not use a hotmail/live account but Windows will still
 track what you do...no big deal, Google does it with Chrome (not to mention Android). It makes it easier to
get apps from the store if you like apps (not for me).

It's 2014 and no any multi-tab feature in the console window.
Apparently that's on the wish list. One other thing on the wish list is a sudo-like command but it's a bit complex.

Finally got windows 10 on my puter.
Hardest thing was creating a boot dvd.
Without the Microsoft download tool and the documentation it would NEVER have happened.
IT IS FAST!!!       Of course I don't have anyway near all my goodies on it.
For instance: Sandboxie won't work on Windows 10.
ESET SS has a trail version that I installed and it is working very nice.
I have two 1T HDs in the puter with 1 running windows 7 pro 64-bit and
the other running Windows 10.
Nice thing is, I only have to move the power cable to switch from one to the other.
This is temporary so I don't mind. Beats dual booting and taking a chance
on messing up the windows 7 HD.
There is no Computer Icon on the desktop and no Windows Explorer Icon.
As usual they have moved things around for what reason I have no idea.
They have taken some of the nonsense of Windows 8 out of it, but the rest
I am able to delete.

You might try comodo firewall(Now I think internet suite) it has a built in sandbox function. I use it,and find the free version more than I need for my purposes.

Hi Anunitu.
Can't do that as ESET SS has a 2 way firewall. I can't have any other firewall
with ESET SS.

What about DirectX version on Windows 10 prerelease ?
Is it v12 or 11 ?
I've read that :
 - MS had rewritten DX from scratch
 - NVIDIA supplied experimental driver with DX12 suport .

Thank you, adeyblue
It seems , that it contains some DX12 runtime libraries but the main features are kept for release version.
I'm surprised that Win10 was successfully installed with 1GB RAM .

Hi vertograd,

against insufficient memory helps only more memory. (Confucius or so)

Hi Gunther,
Yes, perhaps  I'll think about adding more memory .
