Come on guys, we all know that Vista is the best Windows.


Yeah, let's all go back to Vista! xD

In all seriousness, I'll wait it out! 1) because I haven't got the prompt thing and 2) because I don't fancy changing it until it's certain that Windows 10>Windows 7!

If I was on Windows 8, on the other hand, I'd be clicking the update button ASAP! :P

Look on the bright side though, if we go by the Windows trend:



Windows 10 should be good! xD

I'm staying windows 7. I don't need any metro or touch screen capabilities in my windows. Windows has also hinted at having a subscription service so there might be a monthly fee to use/upgrade windows 10 but they haven't implemented it yet.

I'm looking into using Linux mint as my new OS. It's a linux version that has more of a windows feel than windows 8/10.



Oohh, you've just given me something to think about. I was looking at going back to Linux again and have been looking at Deepin but Mint looks pretty neat as well...decisions.

As for the upgrade to Windows 10, if it isn't broke, don't fix it. I'd just wait until you have to buy new hardware with it on myself.

I'll upgrade right away. Before I do, I'll make a system image, before I upgrade, so incase something doesn't work out. Then I should be able to reload the system image.

I am going to wait to upgrade my main PC. I have been running win 10 on my backup computer and honestly have not ran into a single feature I feel like I really need. The OS is not bad, but the customizability is really limited compared to 7. I have a year to upgrade my 7 ultimate anyway. I have messed with the apps and have yet to find one that I feel I really need. There are some nice ones but none that are really ground breaking. I'll admit I have not played with cortana, but I am not the kind of person to really talk to my computer.

i have been testing the lower tier of 10 since my backup PC had home and ultimate, I have ran into multiple issues with windows update. First of all, there is no way for me to tell progress, I can tell it's running but can't tell how much has downloaded so far and there is no way to pause the download. The other issue I have had is with the update ignoring the command of delaying the update to a more convenient time. I started the computer after not starting it for a few weeks, and while it did ask if I wanted to delay the update to 3 am, I said yes and it proceeded to update and restart anyway in the middle of what I was doing.

The start button is also kind of annoying, you cannot really reorganize how programs are organized. All of them are on there and they are alphabetically organized, so it is not really conducive to my work style. While none of these are really deal breakers, they are annoyances to me. There are some minor annoyances with control panel and pc settings as well, pc settings has many of the settings, but they are buried under more clicks and tabs and having to alternate between the two is kind of a hassle.

Overall the OS is a lot more locked up limiting customization options by a lot, so if you are someone that is picky about how you configure your computer, I would wait.

I have been running the technical preview on a netbook but recently moved it onto my main PC.
So far I have been pretty impressed with the OS. The Edge browser has taken over as my primary browser and now chrome is my backup.
There was some update issues on some of the other builds, but the most recent one seems to be doing good and the OS feels much faster then 7 did for me.

I would wait about 2 months to upgrade just to make sure the kinks are working themselves out if you are really worried. If you want to try it out right away it should be fine and will be a bit of fun to get used to. Downside is Cortana will not work everywhere for a little while yet.

So far I am enjoying it more then I did windows 7 though.

From what I read, Windows 10 is really a fix for Windows 8. If you have Windows 7 I probably would not "upgrade" Just remember, if you upgrade from Windows 7, there will probably be some programs that you have that WON'T WORK ANYMORE If you have the money, a safer bet would be to get a new, more powerful PC and put Win10 on it. Then you could test it out, put your programs on it slowly and make sure you don't wipe out your programs that are now operational.

This is what I thought might happen, in addition to security updates, Microsoft is going to force the latest drivers on users as well. Which means you can't roll back a broken driver without disconnecting your PC from the Internet cause Microsoft knows best even if it breaks stuff.

I am switching to Linux, I'll dual boot Windows 7 to play games other than that I am done with Windows.
