    I would like to purchase 3 x cheap Windows 7/8 so this year I'll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 this year.

    You guys are in the know with all this stuff. I love coming here on release day for new windows.

    Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

    might as well wait and see what Win10 pricing will be. Why pay for Win7 or Win8.x now when 10 is almost here? At least check the pricing first and then decide.

    Sounds logical,but let me wonder,does Win 10 worth it,though not finished.?And which is better.?Is there enough improvements since Win 8,yet we have to pay more to get it.?What about poor people who can't afford a copy of XP?Do they still have to be at the bottom of IT world?I'm just thinking loud And use MS OSs.

    you could always mod your bios, and use an OEM:SLP copy of Windows 7 on each of the three machines

    Yes he or she could do that, but they would have to upgrade using either DVD or downloaded iso, since upgrading through WU can only be done, if either Win7 or 8.1 Update are retail activated.
