    So far I have it on 3 of my six computers. It has been the fastest and easiest OS install I have ever done. Including download, less than an hour and a half. And I did not have to manually update any drivers. If it runs on Win 7 and Win 8.1 it will run on 10 and run faster.

    I was going to ask the same thing. Apache, are any of those rigs overclocked? I'm wondering how it will handle it.

    Her is a great resource. http://www.maximumpc.com/everything-...ndows-10-2015/

    So far the only thing that I dislike is that they got rid of Windows Media Center, which I use on my HTPC. I guess I'll have to switch to XMBC.

    None are overclocked. I do not use WMC on any of the computers I upgraded but, I think XMBC is supposed to be a good choice as a replacement. Also, if you play DVDs on your computer Win 7 does not come with support for DV D playback. They are supposed to offer an app for that, but I do not know if it has been released yet.

    Thanks, I'm slowly cleaning up my desktop to allow for a clean install, I'm not sure how that will work if I use the upgrade. Will I be able to install windows 10 Upgrade as if it were new?

    XMBC is now called Kodi. It is full featured, but I haven't heard anybody recommending it instead of WMC. Many people choose to leave their HTPC on Win7 to continue using WMC without any compromises. Kodi will be much better by the time Win7 reaches end of life.

    Apparently, Microsoft hates WMC because it makes no profit yet has a sustained cost for user support.

    Always something fishy about a free OS. In Window's case is how much data it collects so it can feed "Cortana."

    I been pondering the same thing. Since when does Microsoft give anything away without an ulterior motive. Seems fishy. You guys maker sure you disable your webcams or they gonna be watchin you for sure. I'm gonna wait til all the dust settles and somebody comes clean. I dont know what they're up to but someone will rat em out one day.

    I've now updated all my work PCs % total. The upgrade has been the easiest OS activity I've ever fiddled with.

    I really like Windows 10 and recommend it to everyone.

    All the best parts of Windows 8.1 without the dual interface... A little learning curve from Windows 7, very tiny learning curve from Windows 8.1

    I will try my install soon. They are coming out with the windows 10 interface for my phone in a couple of months. I am curious how how well it will interface together.

    Your phone, tablets and PCs should interface seamlessly with Win 10.
    I loved XP and Win 7. Hated 8.1 on my laptop. I am loving Win 10 too.
    Cobalt Win 10 is only being offered free for Win 7 and Win 8 users for one year. If you have not upgraded by the one year anniversary of the release of Win 10 you will have to purchase it. XP and Vista users have to purchase Win 10.

    I'm on Win 7 and am just waiting a few more months before I do the upgrade so more fixes and such have been applied (it was a bit rushed to be released). More often than not, you have to make sure you have updated drivers especially for older systems.

    two of mine were older machines and updated without problems. One was an older PC that originally came with XP installed. I do have one computer that I am going to have to replace the video card if I want to update it to Win 10. Since I already have a card that works, I will probably go ahead and update it.

    I installed Win10 on my main system. The upgrade went fine with one exception: The app store and new windows 10 apps don't work. Haven't figured out yet how to fix it.

    I was surprised when I installed Win 10 on a laptop that is over 10 years old and originally came with XP. Win 10 installed as easily, on this computer, as it did on the others. No problems with any drivers or programs. This includes proprietary that runs my engraver.

    I haven't used this fix (I'm postponing as long as possible). It has helped some people:

    I have my OS on one drive and data on the other. A few days ago did the upgrade without any issues. today I did a clean install with the option to keep my files. It dumped my apps but kept my data and it took less then 20 minutes. Prior to the upgrade my SSD was full with stuff I couldn't get rid of but after the clean install it's like new. Below is an image of the new install after reinstalling may applications.
