If I read the information correctly on the link to Microsofts Swedish site, 
you will not be able to download an ISO file if you want a free upgrade.

I dont't see this as a big problem. I don't think upgrading OS-version is 
worth the hassel. The reason I will upgrade is only to test and see if 
Paradox works as expected. I will move to Windows 10 in the same pace as I 
buy new PC's. Unless I see really big advantages with the new OS, which I 
don't expect.

As to VLC, I assume they will upgrade it and make a version available that 
runs on Windows 10.

I suspect, as with Windows7, a clean install will be the best option.
Windows7 allowed a clean install, even when you bought an upgrade. (As
long as you had a previous version). I hope Windows10 has the same
ability from the downloaded iso.

I suspect you're right about DVDs. Movies have always required separate
software. I use VLC. Microsoft says that media player will be
uninstalled because it has issues with Windows10.
