    Well m8, Win 10 will be FREE for the first year from Microsoft via Update, when you have WIN 7 or 8 on your PC (Legal copy).
    So, maybe you stick to WIN 7, as I do, and wait for WIN 10 to come out. On the Microsoft page there is a Newsletter for Upgrading to WIN 10 for free. Or use google for it. But that you know allready... ;)
    Cheers,
    Andrew
    - Have FUN out there. -

    PS: Win 8 sucks. Wasn't a good 1. Only my 5 cents.....;)

    Na dann Moin Moin @Andrew Boerner ;)

    Thanks for the info, already thought it`ll be better to stick to the golden rule "never change a running system". Will have an eye on Win10 as advised...

    Well its not such golden this rule, you just should not hurry up to change an os until it matures a bit.
