I have a digital audio workstation with a gazillion apps on it. When I went from XP to 7, it took me months to straighten things out. I opted not to go to 8 for various reasons, but now realize I should have gone for that $40 deal. I am guessing that Microsoft might have a similar deal for 10 next year, and would like to be prepared for that.
Supposedly, I could uprade from 7-Home Premium to 8 and keep all of my apps and settings, then go from 8 to 8.1. However, this same logical upgrade process was not made part of the 7 to 8.1. Why? No idea. So now I am thinking that someone at Microsoft had an epiphany that some folks (me) might have a couple hundred apps on their machine, and the upgrade path from 7 to 10 has been made as smooth (?) as the path from 7 to 8 to 8.1.
So should I try and be prepared for the potentially upcoming promo sale of 10 by moving myself to 8, or just wait and see?
