    Windows 10
    At least some of us can upgrade something ;)
    Upgrading 4 computers now, as a Microsoft fan I'm excited.
    Are you?

    I have two machines running Win7 64.

    I was an early adopter for a long time. This time, I'm going to sit back and wait a month or two and see what pops up in the complaints department. I no longer have interest in chasing down bugs. ;)

    I just keep asking myself "WHY" ? Why would Microsoft GIVE this away?

    There's no such thing as a free ride.

    I never went to W7... I dumped all my XP machines and went right to 8.1 and felt totally at home. So far I must say 10 looks sweet! I know bugs coming but that's computer life is it not?

    True enough, it is! If I get antsy, I may upgrade my laptop first. My desktop gaming computer will have to wait until I see if there are any program compatibility issues. If I were able, I'd just dual boot. But since it kills the Win7 OS, it doesn't seem like there's a way at this point. But there have been workarounds published in the past when Win7 first came out.

    Curiosity may get the better of me on this laptop though.

    Done it... Windows 10 is now installed on my main PC. It looks alright to me. Kind of mix between 7 and 8, I think I'm going to like it. The start menu is sort of back, Except 1 or 2 drivers, everything works. Apparently Microsoft has heard the complaints of the planet this time. That's cool! :cool:

    Like someone has mentioned before, this OS is likely going to evolve into an Office365 business model.

    I have a lot to learn about this topic though. So I could be completely off base. However, knowing MS like I have over the years, I don't see them doing anything that will require their suffrage in the money department.
