How many have upgraded to windows 10? It's completely free to all users Windows 7 -> 8.1.

I have not upgraded and will not be for a few months because I cannot deal with it if I run into stability issues. However I have tried it out in a virtual machine and my first impression is that it looks quite polished.

I want to try it but am so hesitant still. My computer says that it will notify me when I can upgrade but it hasn't yet....I'm curious if it will be better than 8.1 or just another windows. It looks like it'll be good though!

I haven't either you may need to install your updates for the current system.

I'm not going to bother because the fact is I have 200+ updates and this thing hasn't been updated since the day I got it, like I just told John if I update it, then it very well might explode.

I have seen some good reviews of the Minecraft for Windows 10 though, and it is currently free to people who had Minecraft before, but even with better Minecraft I don't feel like potentially assassinating my laptop.

My updates were done, that's the weird thing, I tried looking into it but it just says it will still let me know unless I want to do it by going to the site, if I have time this week I might just do that

I've been using it for about a month and a half... (Technical preview) I'm OK with it. It's better than 8. There's an actual start menu. But it still feels like previous versions of Windows are showing through.

The start menu issue has been virtually irrelevant for me because I installed classic shell. I never see metro. So as someone considering an upgrade, it won't do much for me in that regard.

Seems the biggest make or break deal of the thing is the way updates can't be stopped only delayed.

They've basically killed metro at least on desktop haven't tried tablets.

Also unless you have some super old or exotic hardware it seems pretty stable haven't had a single crash.

Yeah, if updates can't be stopped I'm not interested (like Crystal I've got a million held off I'm not likely to run any time soon) also isn't there supposed to be some sort of automatic cloud back-up thing? It all sort of puts a bad taste in my mouth, even though I'm sure it'll automatically be included next time I get a new laptop (and I go through them quicker than I'd like to admit). If I do update I'll probably wait a few months at least for most of the bugs to be squashed / all the drivers to be updated. That being said, everyone I know who has adapted to it is pretty happy with it.

Cloud at least is optional and can be disabled.

Yeah but it still forces updates, and the majority of them are useless and just cloud up space on your device. I don't want something that forces me to update and will shut off in the middle of the night when I may be running something just because it updated. I hate half of windows updates and they cause more damage than good for me in the past.

Slow track updates, and the scheduler is supposed to take usage into account, at least mine does it always picks a time when I'm not using the computer and reschedules automatically if I am.

I'm not happy :/ I got the notification that it's ready to upgrade and I haven't had the time to back it up til tonight so I didn't update last night when it said ready.

It crashed completely. I don't know if it's because I didn't say OKAY let's do this or if it's a coincidence :/

I imagine it's probably a coincidence? I don't think they would be forcing crashes.

I doubt they're forcing crashes if they were it's been almost a week or more someone would've caught it and we'd have seen some big news stories on it. Did you lose all of your writing Liz?

I just found it really strange it happened :/

I was SO lucky this time around. It asked if I wanted to refresh the laptop which resets to factory settings but keeps all info and data you've put on it. So I didn't lose anything! <3 thank you for asking

I want windows 10 to quit bugging me to upgrade. I refuse to upgrade until about a month or so has passed so issues will be ironed out by Microsoft. I haven't taken the time yet to figure out how to get rid of the nagging message. They are aggressively pushing this.

I'm curious as to how many people are having compatibility issues...I finally installed windows 10 and my mouse went wonky now and it said 'the control panel extension is incompatible with the driver'

The only issues I have found with windows 10 is every now and then i'll have a pop up come up saying something didn't load correctly so I have to restart my computer, but other than that I don't find anything wrong, to me it's better then whatever i had before, yes i have one issue about the start menu not always wanting to load but it's okay, after i restart it works. biggrin.gif

My primary issue with Windows 10 is for the bigger system updates, my wifi gets turned off so I have to put in the pass code for it all over again.

That's about it. Haven't turned Cortana on. I do make sure updates are checked for and installed every other day or so, and lately, it's ust been Windows Defender Definitions updates.
