This popped up today.
Just checking in whether people had any issues with HCE on Windows 10 or not.

No, if you have a valid copy of Windows 7 or 8 you get a free upgrade whenever you like.
But only for a year.
So I think clicking this will give whatever your product number is a green light to get W10 whenever you like.

I am using the preview build and I haven't experienced any CE problems, I couldn't get OS to run on the previous version if that means anything.

Personally I don't see much of a problem for CE modders in W10.

I do however strongly believe that buying a new win10 pc may cause more compatibility errors against an older pc with an older OS which has been upgraded.

Thinking long term I'm not sure what the case would be after W10 for CE however.

No it's not yet available... also it says its a free upgrade, not a trial, so once you upgrade it's yours for ever, not for 1 year.

It says in small print:
