I’m going to show you how I upgraded to Windows 10 and kept my Windows 7 install. I alluded to this method earlier. Although not tested this should work for Windows 8.1 too.
I searched the Windows 10 EULA and I can find nothing that restricts this but I’m not a lawyer either.

*This release of Clonezilla live (2.4.5-20) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.*
“Clonezilla is a partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to True Image® or Norton Ghost®. It helps you to do system deployment, bare metal backup and recovery.”
Someone really needs to hook them up with a new logo.
Sigcheck v2.5, Process Explorer v16.11, Whois v1.13, RAMMap v1.5 released.

Win10 Now A “Recommended Update”
Mary Jo has the scoop. Turn off Recommended Updates: Windows Update > Change settings
Win10 Passes Windows XP
WooHoo! Really? You’re celebrating the fact that a new, free, aggressively pushed operating system surpassed an OS that has been unsupported for almost 2 years?
I use Eric’s Movie Database to catalog my DVD collection. It isn’t very big but it keeps me organized, tracks loan-outs, and provides proof for insurance purposes if need be.
You can export the list. Mine is here: TweakHound’s Movie Database
BTW – This program works just fine using Linux/Wine.
FYI – Though our names are the same I’m not connected to the program in any way. I can’t even get the guy to answer an email.

Cracks In The Linux Foundation?
Many in the Linux community are ticked off that the Linux Foundation has turned its back on the average user. They did this by allowing only those people with deep pockets to elect board members. While I find the news disheartening I do not find it surprising. Companies are involved in the Linux movement because they see a way to profit off of it. Altruism isn’t a factor. Why do you think so many distros got everyone to basically beta-test a server file system? (I’m talking BTRFS)

Tom Warren of WinRumors/Neowin/iVerge claims the Windows Phone is dead.
To be honest I selfishly hope that is the case. I was never interested in a Windows Phone and I desperately want Microsoft to get the mobile/phone crap off my desktop OS.

It is my belief that everything on the web should be as secure as we can make it. To that end I have done my part by making this site all HTTPS.
