I came across something today, there were, all of a sudden, 7 "messages" in the "Windows Store" tile icon on the start screen of my windows 8.1 computer. I rushed to disable the Windows Store service, so didn't get chance to look at precisely what the "messages" were, however It would seem likely that they relate to Windows 10. In the next few days I'll see what happens but if anyone with windows 8.1 would look at their start screen, see if they have a sudden number of messages in that "Store" tile and see what they say then it might reveal whether ms has now started advertising windows 10 via start screen tiles as well as via GWX. For now I'm leaving the windows store service disabled on one computer and enabled on the other to see what happens over the next few days, with system images to hand incase disabling it has caused any problems. I do not recommend anyone copy me in this disabling until I've had time to see whether it's problematic and until people have actually had time to investigate whether the "messages" they are likely to have got are windows 10 related or something else entirely.
Note: in this topic I'm simply asking whether others have noticed these messages and whether anyone who has checked them has seen them to be windows 10 related, I am simply trying to work out whether this is occuring, any debates on the subject would perhaps be better in threads specifically for debating (and if it turns out that I've misinterpreted this sudden number of messages and they are not windows 10 related at all then there won't be anything to debate).
