[QUOTE=UTR;2746959]I think upgrading an OS for many people is more tied to hardware changes than anything else. I wouldn’t pay anything to upgrade Windows on a computer that will have its motherboard replaced in the future as the upgrade money is wasted on older technology. This is indicated by slowdowns in computer sales prior to a new Windows release hitting the market.
For me to upgrade a computer I am currently using, the cost would have to be under $25USD. Even then choosing to upgrade would depend on when I had planned to swap motherboards or buy a new laptop.[/QUOTE]
Few times I have to agree to agree… I wouldn’t do the upgrade way. I would rather buy the full retail version and if they have WinX x64 Ult-I would go that route. The first sentence is too much the truth nowdays unless your hardware/drivers can update drivers you can be cause more problems then a new O/S can fix. For the most Savvy new boards is what they would decide but for budget computing users they most likely can’t afford a new system. For me considering Win7 is able to run on old hardware with vista drivers was a godsend and very nice. That was something even Win8 broke. But for all the upgrade I wouldn’t do I rather get Full Version instead and do clean install and if reports are true load my Win7, Vista x64 drivers in Win10 and use it that way.
