Please post your Windows 10 experiences in this thread.

I'll start with my own: I've not yet tried it, and don't really intend to until Microsoft stops supporting Win8.1. Currently, I wouldn't recommend that anyone else upgrade to it either, since I've heard that it's extraordinarily buggy. I'm curious to see what experiences others have with Win10, and whether they love it or hate it.

PS: I already know of two members who hate it.:p

If you have a legit install of Win7 or 8, its a legit free, full upgrade. Whether you want to be a pioneer is up to you (they're the ones face down on the prairie with the arrows sticking out of their backs). I'll wait a bit..

EDIT: I love the first lines of this article - linked from the Win10 upgrade page.
Win10 makes your computer more like a tablet or smartphone!
I mean, where do I sign?

I've Upgraded my 2 lenovo desktop and i must say it's doing great, it's still too early to evaluate in detail but ,but at first glance i notice better performance on ATI catalytic graphics card as output to tv Display than in in Win7,on my other HP laptops i notice better wireless in Win 10 , in Win 7 it did not work well on my Xfinity wireless router,i had to use My other Router with WRT software but only could get half speed, now all run great.

My computer's hardware only can run xp3, it's P4 2.4GB, if I want to do the software upgrade then I have to upgrade my hardware first, that situation like as the WinTel age, I just read the news from the internet, the news talking about the the MS policy changing, because they trying to get the personal infos as google did, they just for the benefit of Ads, when you get the win 10 then MS got your personal infos and sell your infos to the ads companies, if MS can get billions members then how much money they can earn from those infos?

Google provided many services for free, they got so much users infos, and that's how google make money, now MS changing the policy not to sell the products, just want to get the users infos, who will be the winner, we are just drink the tea and waiting to see.

Congratulations on successfully removing the Synaptic Pointing Device icon!

Please, come back and let us know what else Win 10 is good for.

I've got Windows 8 on my 2012 vintage computer and the little Windows icon has now appeared on my taskbar.

I have developed a phobia about installing new software and I don't know if I will be better off or worse if I do install it. So I'm waiting to hear from others who have been the "Guinea Pig". :p

If you uninstall Windows update #3035583, the Win10 nagware will be deleted from your PC and its taskbar icon will permanently disappear.;) Besides doing that, I've also hidden the update to avoid reinstalling it, which can easily happen otherwise because Microsoft cleverly gave it Important status for Win8 users.:p

(See http://www.ghacks.net/2015/04/17/how-to-remove-windows-10-upgrade-updates-in-windows-7-and-8/)

EDIT: From this article, it seems like upgrading to Win10 (and downgrading) is easier than I thought. I might actually try it once Microsoft gets the bugs in it fixed.
