For those that are in the Insider program and those that want to know a bit more here is a good article from OnMSFT.
Forty years ago today, Intel launched the original 8086 microprocessor — the grandfather of every x86 CPU ever built, including the ones we use now. This, it must be noted, is more or less the opposite outcome of what everyone expected at the time, including Intel.

After upgrading to Win10 I have found a few bumps along the way but most of them have been little and solved. Win10 is actually very likable.
On my road trip, We The People 2013 – www.wethepeople2013.us – I used my Asus ROG laptop as my mobile lab for ingesting still and video files and then editing them. For the video from my Nikon D800 I get MOV files and I would use the MS Movie Maker program to get a quick edit done and posted to YouTube.
After the move to Win10 and keeping the Movie Maker program, part of the Windows Live Essentials package that was not updated for Win10, I find the program will not open MOV files anymore. Sad…
I did find this link, http://www.wikihow.com/Convert-a-MOV-File-to-an-MP4, from wikiHow that explained you could just change the extension of the file from a .MOV to a .MP4! Really… So I did a basic copy/paste in the same folder, got a COPY added to the file name and then changed the extension. Works like a charm and the ‘new’ files open in Movie Maker just fine.
Hope this is helpful to someone else, have a good one…
