Btw have you tried to reproduce some of the more critical bugs you found on different pc setups?
My HTPC is a bare minimum system only running what is required to view videos, tv, movies. It won't be updated with beta software.

I'm asking because lately I find that software's behavior vary significantly from setup to setup even if there isnt a major difference between the setups.
Also from another app that delivers surveys and what not, a question about how we're running Windows 10 came up and a virtual machine was one of them. Looks like they don't mind if people test purely in VMs if they want to get a taste without destroying existing OS installations.

It does not look like there will be much updates until the end of January which is rumored when the Consumer Preview of Windows 10 will be released (essentially graduation from alpha to beta) so we shall see.
It was dis-proven. You will have to pay for Windows 10. The new rumor now is that there will be a timed based license similar to Office 365 where you can pay for a year of use of Windows. Microsoft can get away with this because they dominate the enterprise market (something Apple has always flopped on their face on) which is where their main source of money comes in. Even Windows RT did not become "free license" until it was well on its death bed.
Probably the most "wow" feature is also the most gimmicky one which would be Microsoft Cortanna (not available for UAT testing currently). I'm not sure where this want of digital assistance comes from because I have never seen anyone seriously use Siri, S-Voice, Google Now, whatever.
Price range I wouldn't know. That's not my forte. Neither is managing a release. I would say expect what you normally see to pay for a Windows license. Most people I know usually get their "complimentary copy" through OEM licensing when they buy whatever brand computer.
