out off date

it will become full vers so long as you stay insider program user

Hubby has preview version 10130 currently on his laptop. He seems to think it works reasonably ok. It did kill a few of his tech programs when it installed though.

It will become "unlegit" as soon as the final release is out and you want to leave the Tech Preview program. GUARANTEED.
BTW, the MS Forums are not made up of MS Employees, they are a mismatch of experts and complete noddy's much like TM's Computing Thread and all have their own take on issues :-)

Working really doesn't have anything to do with legitimate

Fortunately all my PCs are both - but XP. Like Jetgriff, I'll have to wait and see. There's still several choices, it's not even a question of security. . :)

as are all of mine, Win7. If you're getting the black desktop and watermark, you're doing it wrong.

I'll be trying the free upgrade on my grandaddy laptop, see how it goes.

Problem some might have with staying in the insider program is that you will always be a few steps ahead of the "final release" and that might be a bit of a bug filled experience. At the moment an Insider is at the end of the development cycle for 10, so it's very stable, but you will be moved to the start of the development of 11, which will be anything apart from stable.

Also helps when MS makes a clear statement, rather than their usual obfuscating blog post. :))

All you need to do is untick 971033 and select Hide Update. It will mark it as do not install and should never bother you again.
