It will only reappear with each big update i should imagine but for now i can have a nice clean watermark free desktop...
Yes it is, albeit fairly awkward to get to. I managed to do it twice in two installs of Win 10 and I believe if you click the link to sign up for a Microsoft Account, on the next page you'll get the opportunity (another link) to select to use a local account.I've always installed Windows 8 whilst offline so as not to be compelled to log on to Windows using an email address. Is that still an option in the Windows 10 install?
If...... as you have said you already have Windows 8, then.....But I don't see the point in buying this if you have already got Windows 8.
Windows 10 has pretty much the same options. You just need to select the Create an Account option and then the Use Local Account options.I've always installed Windows 8 whilst offline so as not to be compelled to log on to Windows using an email address.

As the guy's point out above no need to purchase anything os wise as it's all free or will be at least to Windows 8 users and up. This is the last big operating system release by Microsoft hence the reason why it was called Windows 10. Microsoft deemed this release so big that it passed the Windows 9 name and called it 10 instead. After this release there will only be updates. There will be no more new operating system every 3yrs and instead Microsoft plans to use yearly updates.I have just installed Windows 10 preview 32 bit today which I am duel booting alongside Windows 8.1 Enterprise. Which was a Beta version of Windows 8.1. I would say it's a lot like Windows 8 except that it now has it's own start menu and there is no more start screen. I never bough Windows 8.1 as I have already got Windows 8 and I still use Windows 7.
The good news is that all of my old Windows XP and Windows 7 software is working on 10. So what old software runs on 8 will run on 10. But I don't see the point in buying this if you have already got Windows 8. Yes I do use Windows 8 but most of the time I use Windows 7 as I am using now, since it is faster than Windows 8.
Microsoft has released a new build, exactly like we said they would with build 9860, today and you can download the bits right now.
You can get the new version of Windows 10 by going to Windows Update and checking for the updates within that panel. If you need more detailed instructions, you can find them here.
This is the first major update for Windows 10 and while we have seen incremental patches go out, this is the first wide scale test of upgrading builds. Of course, Microsoft has been doing this for months internally with Windows 10 but do let us know if you had any issues with the process.
As always, we will be digging around to find all of the new updates beyond what Microsoft has announced. Much like with 9841, there are typically new features that did not make their way in to the public changelog; if you happen to find any, make sure to send us a tip.
OK, time out !!! I thought Microsoft wanted to check being able to "Push" the new builds...aren't we supposed to wait for it to do that?
