X1Carbon and Windows 10

I have just ordered a new X1 carbon which will ship with Win 8.1.  By the way, I am one of those who do not mind Win 8.  I simply installed Start8 and voila my W530 runs like champ with a Win 7 desktop boot and start button.
Here is my question and maybe this one is really directed at Lenovo.  Is there a plan to update factory installed drivers when Win 10 releases?????  I have heard that there is an issue with the X1 Carbon fingerprint reader software that won't run with Win 10 and in fact hangs up the whole o/s.  So can I have confidence that there will be a package of software updates that people can download after a Win 10 install?  Of course I am waiting for the general release, but now am having second thoughts as to whether I did a stupid thing ordering a new Carbon now instead of waiting until the Spring release of Win 10.
And for that matter, I have an old fabulous X220 running Win 7.  What about software/driver updates for it on the release of Win 10 (I haven't bothered to update it to Win 8.1).
Any guidance, particularly from Lenovo, appreciated.

Hi Joe,
So the situation here is you upgrade Windows 8 to Windows 10, and Windows 10 can't be activated?
There is no need to activate Windows 10 in the Technical Preview period, and if you have issue activating Windows, you may try to run:
1. Open Administrative command prompt (Windows key+x > A)
2. Type: SLUI 3
3. Enter the product key listed on the download site.
And if you still get the activation issue, please contact Microsoft local license support team for further assistance.
