  • Windows 10

    So, I have the ability to reserve a free upgrade for windows 10. Should I do it? I'm afraid I don't know much about it, but I do know Windows 8 is the devil. Thoughts?

    I've always thought that every 2nd version of Windows is good so 10 should be ok. I am planning to stay with my Win7.

    Isn't the free upgrade available until launch, which gives us more time to look into the pros and cons of 10?

          It's available for the first year I think to anyone with win7/8/8.1

            It's Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. If you're on old Windows 8, you need the 8.1 upgrade before you can get Windows 10.

            It's a free copy of Windows, how could you pass that up? Other than the Metro UI Start menu, I don't think Windows 8 was particularly bad. Even that can be easily worked around with a Start application like Start8.

              I enjoy 8.1 - it's easily as stable as 7 and who uses the start menu anyway? So much faster to just hit Windows key and type the name of the program you want than to go hunting through slide out menus. I've been doing that since 7, so I hardly noticed the change to the Metro Start menu.

              I will be upgrading to 10 as soon as it releases.

                by the way, windows 8.1 users should consider not using a start menu replacer if they are going to upgrade. Some bugs have appeared and weird errors have occurred on the test versions of 10.

                  My friend has tested windows 10 and says that the UI looks sexier and the OS performs better than Windows 7 and 8. So, I'll definitely be upgrading.

                      8.1 is fantastic, and under the hood, it is faster than 7. I'm looking forward to 10 and I'm ready for it to release. I'm also a big fan of Start8.

                        I've been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview for months. It's fast, smooth and a good combination between 7 & 8.1.

                        The only issues I've had are due to me being in the "fast lane" for new builds as soon as they are released (some minor bugs but no deal breakers).

                        Windows 10 has run every program and game I've thrown at it and these are pre-release builds. So I'd recommend upgrading on July 29th when it releases.

                            I can confirm. Cortana is also the search bar.

                              I'm going to uninstall the Start8 app after I upgrade myself.
