I am on Windows 8 which is fine, but installing it can be tricky. NEVER buy the 5 device package as it never works on more than one device. Support is poor and the annual subscription no doubt puts it beyond many people who may be tight on a budget. Considering what you may end up paying over 10 years you may just as well buy a Mac or Apple which is also overpriced, but at least it is once off.
Only chickens achieve something while sitting still...
Dave for us we have to check if their are drivers available for our machines and the software will run, then if they are available how mature are they.
I will stick to W7 until there is a compelling reason to change.
I might try on the laptop though.
Only stress when you can change the outcome!
Blurock you hit the nail on the head
Microsoft offering a free upgrade? I'm sceptical, but I did go ahead and reserve my upgrade.
The 3GB download is going to be a pain, we're capped at 10GB at work and the speed is 2Mbs. Have to ensure there's no loadshedding and leave it to do it's thing overnight.
I've been running the Windows 10 Insider Preview for a few months now, on my MacBook Pro via Parallels. It seems to work fine, although I'm not using it as my main OS, but rather for curiosity value. All my W8 drivers are working, and I have even tested Pastel on it - no problems.
I think W10 will be a winner compared to W8/8.1 - it seems to have taken the best of W7 and W8 and packaged it into quite a slick-looking system.
I'd rather poke my own eye out with a blunt stick than upgrade to any microsoft OS that's not reached at least SP2 at which point there's a remote glimmer of hope that they've sorted out some of the glitches.
I am special and so is Vanash.
I regard myself as an "early adopter", and I jump straight in and hope I can stay afloat!
You should see me with my gadgets and gizmos - I am always tinkering with my Nexus phone and tablet, flashing custom ROMs every other day (and sometimes temporarily bricking them). I have even installed the yet-to-launched Android M Preview on my tablet, but then went back to Lollipop after I got bored with that.
On my MacBook Pro I have three operating systems running - Yosemite, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Insider Preview.
I cannot hold myself back from being on the latest cutting-edge technology, glitches and all...
Get windows 10 when it is being outmoded at least it will be working by then...
that said windows 8.1 is running like a dream, never had one crash, never had compatibility problems... Fast and reliable.
