I've done both my Win 10 installs through Insider and logged in through my MS account, so I'll let you know how this plays out.
Daniel, why bother with a VM when you can have the real thing (whether you like it or not) on a real physical disk without the restrictions of a VM?
I might add that the "and remain activated" part of that sentence in the blog post has been removed. It now reads "As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build". (full stop)
No explanation forthcoming and it now makes the whole thing totally ambiguous.
"Windows as a service" essentially means no more big new major releases of the Windows operating system - new features will added as users go along.
So, instead of new features being delivered en masse every couple of years or so via a new operating system, they'll be delivered in real time, as they become available.
In (say) 2 or 3 years time, Windows 10 will likely be quite different to what it is now but it will still be Windows 10. Whereas previously, those differences would have been delivered via a whole new operating system.
I just upgraded to 10162 this morning.
I haven't noticed any aesthetic differences so it's probably a bug fix release.
