However, while the company has been busy highlighting all the shiny new features in the upcoming OS, it’s been a bit quieter when it comes to spelling out the limitations — including making updates automatic for Windows 10 Home users.

Most of these will only affect a small number of users, but upgrading will mean saying goodbye to Windows Media Center, the card game Hearts, and Windows 7’s desktop gadgets.

Microsoft manager Gabriel Aul has said on Twitter that a DVD option for Windows 10 is coming “later this year,” but early upgraders can always download VLC instead.
