    I got two retail licenses on windows 8.1 last year, both upgraded to 10 and activated 2 years back. Now I wish to go back.. Will I be able to reactivate with my license key?

    I would think so. Worst case I think a call to MS to clear up any activation issues should work out.

    I don't know about OP but I'm actually considering going back since 10 is still a bit buggier and I don't find the features compelling enough right now. (but then again, I have research and planning to do.)

    Buggier? I'm finding it to be as stable as 8.1 if not better, have you done a fresh reinstall? I have been doing windows 10 through out preview. The features on 10 for me out weigh the ones on 8.1 now

    Have you reinstalled your system? Fresh install on 10 makes it better stability than 8.1!

    I know about that stuff! I'm supposed to be the one dispensing that advice!
