    What about upgrading from Home to Pro?

    Windows 7 Home is more than adequate for my office, but there is no way I can let Microsoft take over updates without a way to delay or to roll back on a mission critical business computer. What's the best/cheapest way to take Windows 7 Home (x64) to a version that will upgrade to Windows 10 Pro? 7 to 10 computers to update.

    Upgrade to Windows 7 Pro.

    Control Panel > System > click the link "Get more features with a new edition of Windows 7".

    It's $89.95 as of today.

    $900 sounds painful. Must be worth waiting a couple of months to find out the Win 10 Home to Pro price.

    Retail pricing is more painful...

    Ah, OK. I hadn't seen the confirmed retail prices, especially Pro Pack.

    Seems like there should be some volume discounts for small businesses, e.g. a 10-pack in this instance.
