    One of our laptops running Windows 8.1 had a window icon on the toolbar this morning announcing a Free Update to Windows 10. Apparently is it a 3 Gig download, so I am not too sure! Would it leave all the programs and data on it "untouched" or would it require all these things to be re-installed?

    Yes it shopuld do in theory but in practice I'd prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Back-up everything critical first and make sure you can lay your hands on the original installation disks and their licensing codes etc.

    I must be honest, my Windows 8 and 8.1 hasn't given me a day of trouble.
    The only problem I've seen with windows 8 and 8.1 has been old or incompatible drivers from 3rd party vendors causing the problems with the OS.

    I think MS has learnt a bit from Apple IOS, make it easy for your users to upgrade to the latest version to improve the percentage of users using the latest version of the product.

    Good luck.

    If you have Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, or Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center and you install Windows 10, Windows Media Center will be removed.
    Watching DVDs requires separate playback software
    Windows 7 desktop gadgets will be removed as part of installing Windows 10.

    I consider myself to actually know a little something about computers because i am still active in IT even if it is no longer my profession. Windows XP Pro was the gold Standard then Windows 7 Pro showed that Microsoft can build something proper. But I honestly had ZERO problems with windows 8.1 most of my Windows 7 drivers worked with it and when I found supported drivers for the rest of my stuff I never looked back. To date zero crashes not a single one.

    Do i trust windows 10? Hell no... But i will keep my eye on it, once it hit SP1 or SP2 stage yea I might be interested.
