I had items pinned to the taskbar and they were saved. The
apps/packages were still there.
With the ISO upgrade, I seem to have one month to go back to Win7,
via an option included. But that means that you will need extra
space for the Windows.old folder, where Win7 is saved.
You have to look for it, but there is a Media Creation Tool that will
download/create the ISO file[s] you need so you can upgrade multiple
PCs. It will create all 4 "home" versions - Professional 32 and 64
bit, and Home 32 and 64 bit. I made DVDs of all 4 versions. Mostly,
I will be using the 64 bit versions.
a caution about the Media Creation Tool according to a knowledgeable
fellow over at <alt.comp.os.windows-10>; using it deletes
c:\$Windows.~BT which contains the download of the OS. a packrat may
want to have this available. I think it can be re-used on other
mine was a 'clean install' so no original data. it didn't bother the
mbr even though the Linux was on the ssd first, grub worked fine.
(bear in mind this is part of the 'Insider Preview'.)
I create the ISO file and it seems to work fine.
I do not know what is meant "download of the OS", since the packages
creates the ISO file and I install the Win10 free upgrade via the DVD I
created from the ISO file[s].
I did not do the clean install, only the upgraded, since I really did
not want to reinstall all of the packages that the test installs are
designed for. I have installed both the 64 bit version of Professional
and Home [Home finished an hour ago and defrag will turn off the system
after it is done.]
To me, this was better than waiting for my "reservation" to come in
for all my systems.

I installed via the so-called 'Insider Preview' on a Thinkpad
x120e. I haven't used it very much and I haven't installed LO or OO
a) AMD Catalyst program seems broken and I haven't succeeded yet in
fixing it and updating the driver for the Radeon 6310.
b) system gets unusable if I try to use my usb-connected Logitech
trackball, the cursor moves but no responses to clicks; then the
keyboard goes wonky so no right or left clicks work from the

I can't find a pallette to choose from. there are even worse themes
to select from and a limited set of about 8 dour colors. I haven't
tried yet to install true-type (that's a separate procedure, right?).
d) perforce I have a Microsoft account but I turned off most of the
'call home' features and don't use Cortana or One-drive and so
forth but I suspect there's plenty of 'telemetry' going on behind
the scenes, not wholly inappropriate for a preview version.
e) I can't tell yet about speed and performance, too little usage,
but it boots kind of slow but seems ok otherwise.
I suspect there are fixes for some of the problems; feel convinced
I could improve the display if I could get good drivers.
I will be looking at adding some menu background graphics [via
Firefox's options]. But in the original default install, the
"window's" look and feel is not good. It just does not look as
well as it did when I had the system running Win7.
I concur with the above (limited experience with Win7); didn't know
about Firefox supplying background graphics?
