    hey just wondering where the best place to grab W10 is and if there is any reason to go w the boxes version vs the download. Seems to be a $30 difference between the two. I'm looking to upgrade in about a month.

    I upgraded online with the freebie from 7 last year. I see no reason for the box.

    I have Home and Pro, Pro is better for audio.

    If you can, get Pro or (from what I understand) Enterprise is even better. The Home edition is less desirable because it has less ability to "remove" some of the bloat.

    Unfortunately w enterprise you've got to buy like 4 or maybe 6 copies. It's not available as a single purchase. It is however the most tweak able, but I called Microsoft and they said I have to buy a few.

    I've got home stock. Pro is cheap enough. I can't handle not being able to disable update notifications in home.

    Ideal I'll save a few bucks and just download it to my NAS and hopefully just be able to install it directly from the NAS. Hopefully Marco chimes in on this one.
