No need for a fresh install.
The idea of upgrading to a new OS without doing a full, clean wipe and install leaves me cold.
..I'd have that nagging feeling that it just wasn't operating at full efficiency, in that way only a full clean install can.
Its a good move. Going from preview to release will be no more troublesome than updating with a service pack.
This is excellent new. I would never to an upgrade without a clean install ex. win7 to win10. Upgrading from win10 consumer preview to win10 retail/OEM should be like installing sp1. I will likely install this the day it releases and if it's any good buy it the day I can get it with a student discount.
I like this idea.
I've got the win 10 preview running on a basic browsing/media machine and it's not the kind of thing I'm going to be formatting very often so being able to just upgrade to a full release version sounds great to me.
I don't understand your perspective on this. You are going from a pre-release version of 10 to a retail version of 10, not upgrading from a version of 8 to 10 so it's hardly 'upgrading to a new OS'.
Personally I don't see this as a massive stumbling block any way. Yes it makes things a little easier but hardly a deal breaker, not for me any way.
Good move by Microsoft.
