    I was on another thread and MAX said something about downloading windows 10.

    Is it available to download now?

    No. But Ubuntu 15.04 has been available for download for the past month...

    A 'Get Windows 10' icon just showed up on my Win7 taskbar. It allows you to reserve the Win10 download when ready and also links to this Microsoft site. The last I read was July 29 availability.
    As always, I'll wait awhile..

    Joe, your just the guy I needed.

    On my hard drive, I have a small swap file, then the first partition has linux mint. The second has ubuntu and the third has debian.

    I installed debian last, so I boot thru that grub, right?

    Now I want to delete debian. If I boot to ubuntu.......delete the debian part. Can I just update grub?

    Will I get the grub menu back on boot? Is that the way it works?

    Norton just popped up a message that Win 10 support was 'coming soon'. No definitive word on whether that was going to be ready for W10 on July 29..
    As always, I will wait..

    I too usually wait until after the update rate dies down, but Win8 is such a dog with a touch screen that I'm going to gamble and get the update as soon as I can. If Win10 turns out to be more of a dog, I'll restore my Win8 image...

    I do most of my "work" (email, Office, surfing internet, automatic backups) on an old XP machine; so having a "broken" ultrabook won't be much of a hardship. But I will wait to see how things work out with the first upgrade before doing the laptops running Win7. My Kids need theirs to work; I barely turn mine on anymore...
