    Default Windows 10 Evaluation is here

    I'm not sure when it was released but today I downloaded windows 10 eval from technet. Announcement was last week sometime if I remember correctly. Downloading the enterprise version was a tad tedious but glad I'm able to test it out. They are taking a very linux approach to this release. According to what I read, daily build updates will be pushed as windows updates until the eval ends rather than having a new ISO download every so often that forces you to reinstall.

    So far it seems very stable and for those of you who hated the tiles of windows 8, a much more traditional start menu has returned. So far I've only been able to test it on my work system but will be testing it at home soon for games and such. If you were someone who adopted the tiles and loved them, they are not gone. They are an option.

    From what I can tell so far, windows 10 is everything windows 8 should have been. Seems to follow MS typical OS release pattern.

    I'm later going to upload my ISO, the USB installer app and a hack to remove the daily build watermark to my skydrive. Will share when it's done. Don't worry, this is not a piracy. MS released this for testing purposes and is intended to be free access.

    *WARNING*
    If you choose to test this pre-release OS be aware that it is likely to prove unstable somewhere along the line. glitches and potential crashes could make it unusable for some. Would not recommend testing on an important machine and be sure to backup and protect any data you do not wish to lose.


    HERE ARE THE FILES:
    Windows 10

    Inside you will find 2 ISO files, one is the x86 and the other x64. You will also find Rufus. This is an executable (no install required) that allows you to make a bootable USB with one of those ISO files. The last is a folder to remove the daily build watermark in the bottom right of the desktop once installation is complete. I have had mixed results removing the watermark. None of them bad, just some unsuccessful.

    For setup you will need a microsoft email account as local accounts are not currently an option.

    Very cool. I read up on it, should be a much better improvement over Win8.

    For those wondering why they skipped Windows 9, it's because 7 ate 9.

    Haha, I laughed at the joke.

    I actually asked my professor why they skipped 9, wish I would have thought/known of the joke then.

    Anyone else think it's crazy that they're already coming out with another windows and there isn't even a service pack 2 for Windows 7 yet? I guess technically Windows 8 was the beta for 10 though right?

    I've updated my original post and added a link to my shared drive. Let me know if the permissions are wrong or any of the files don't work. Never hosted ISO files on drive before.

    I wouldn't call win8 the beta of win10, because that would be a very expensive beta. But from the looks of it, they learned from their faults from Win8/8.1 and applied it to WinX (guessing what they mind end up calling it).

    Yea, I didn't put it on my main rig either. I've got it running on my laptop which is just good enough to run games. I got league and neverwinter patched last night so I'll probably test them both out later. So far I've had excellent performance out of it though. No crashes at home or at work which really surprises me. The big one is no video driver conflicts. I suspect it's still just windows 8 kernel with updates and a new face.
