    Windows 10

    Got the notification the other day for reserving a copy of WIN 10 to be released July 29th. Hard to believe that Microsoft would give anything away, but I guess it's true. They have to make amends for ticking so many people off I'm guessin'. Personally, I don't care much for the 'new style" of operating systems, but you got to go with the flow if you want to stay with technology. Win 7 won't go any higher than DirectX 11. So in order to benefit from the continuing improvements in graphics, OS upgrading is a must. Hopefully it won't be much of a learning /getting used to curve.

    I'm sure a lot of our members got this little present. Are you going to take advantage of it?

    I got the little pop-up the other day and signed up for it. The only reason I did was because they are saying you get the "Start" button back.

    Absolutely and on all of my computers. I have upgraded each time; some with really good deals to entice. I personally don't understand the reluctance and dislike of some of the versions as I have used them all but I guess that's why I have the sign in name I do.

    I reserved Win 10 for our 3 PCs. I didn't know the specifics that glc posted but thought the same needing to upgrade to keep up with the other technology.

    I avoided Win 8 - looked especially hard for a Win 7 machine when I bought my last PC.

    I agree with JimR - I didn't read all the specs but when I saw that the start button was back that was good enough for me to start.

    Yup, reserve it for download on mine and my wife's.
    Don't know when I will install it though, will probably wait for some of the initial "dust" to settle.
    There was a lot of "dust" on Win 8 and Win 8.1.

    The machine I'm using now came with Win 8.1, was aggravate as heck for a day and a half before
    I started getting a handle on it.
    Was probably a month before I was really happy with it and had everything the way I wanted it.

    Always thought it was interesting that Windows came out with a good OS every other release.

    Good OSs, 3.1, 98, XP, Windows 7, and maybe 10 and in between the bad OSs, 95, ME, Vista, Windows 8

    At work I'm a PC. At home I'm a MAC. We're still running Windows 7 on company laptops so it's up to IT whether we upgrade. Probably wait until the next laptop renewal cycle to upgrade to Windows 10.

    Maybe Microsoft is learning from Apple and Android, free OS upgrades.

    I'll be upgrading my Surface Pro 3 to 10 to give it a try. Many of the testers seem to like it very much.o
