I'm waiting, but plan on upgrading and trying to get our PCs all on one OS. My only concern right now is if upgrading will lock my retail copies to one PC like an OEM key

It's still free; however per the article Microsoft might charge for updates to Windows 10 after 2 years.

Upgrading to any OS on day one is typically a bad idea. That being said I'll probably stick to 7 for a good long while.

I have put 10 on 2 of 4 home systems yesterday. I like it so far. My file server upgraded with no issues (older hardware with limited applications installed).

My gaming rig was a different story. The upgrade hung during application setup at the end of the upgrade. I had to do a hard restart, which allowed the system to boot to the desktop, but many applications were screwed (system settings, Edge browser, etc). Windows activated, though, critical for being able to do a clean install.

So, I took the media creation tool, and I made a bootable USB stick. Did a clean install of 10 and reloaded everything. The only application I had issue with was CyberLink PowerDVD 12 Ultra. Those bastards at CyberLink decided they did not have enough of my money and invalidated the Publisher certificate for Windows 10. There is no way to install version 12, and they are offering a sale to get me on version 15 for only $75...bastards. I figure that is what hung my upgrade.

Otherwise, I like the OS, and have not had issues with SLI or gaming thus far. The real test will come at ForgeLAN next weekend.

Update: 4 of 4 systems now updated. 3 of 4 went through the upgrade without issue.

There is no key needed to activate. use the tool select upgrade now on an existing install of 7/8. The upgrade will run and create a hardware key hash on MS server. Then from that point on you can clean install and say skip key and next time unit is online it will auto activate with MS servers as long as all the hardware is the same.
