Where to start...No pun intended. I had hope for windows 10 after hearing people say "it's just like windows 7 it's awesome" my hope was quickly destroyed as soon as i clicked on the "amazing" new start button. You basically have the ugly, useless tile screen from windows 8 put into a box on your desktop, not a true start menu. The start menu is made up of stupid, useless, ugly tile start screen apps, all apps list and if you scroll all the way to the bottom of the list you will find programs and accessories which is the only thing that should be there in the first place.Microsoft needs to give up on the stupid useless, app garbage on desktops. The search bar next to the "start menu" is laggy and brings up web search results etc. Even if you simply search for a file on your pc, the relocation of simple features/settings is dumb and hiding things behind app style windows 8 junk is not cool.Cortana sucks, again the search is laggy and to even use it you need to basically let the program monitor your every move and keystroke. Microsoft used to pride itself on respecting users privacy calling out data miners like google but as you may have guessed by reading the revised versions of their user agreement they sent out prior to releasing windows 10 that is no longer the case. Windows 10 will track your every move or click, apps can read every message or conversation and data mine your entire pc in every nook and cranny including personal files on your hard drive. If you don?€™t believe it check out the settings on any program you open and see for yourself. You will now see notifications, news stories and ads on your lock screen (what is this a damn phone) and every time you launch the new edge browser you will get msn top stories/ads. There are literally a hundred options you need to turn off to not have your every click tracked and sent to microsoft and advertisers...Even if you turn them off they are still on in another menu somewhere else, do you understand why it's free...More like freemium.The new edge browser simply sucks compared to any other browsers out there including internet explorer. When you launch edge it gives you an infinite scrolling screen of msn news and ads that you cannot turn off, at least i cannot find a way to do it, with a search bar saying "where to next" where you can do a web search with bing. I wanted to change my web search to yahoo but it required going to yahoo.Com then opening then new edge menu bar, and adding it then setting it to default, users on windows 7/8 will have trouble with this as it can be very tricky to find. I didn't find many positives with edge, it loads up decently but what?€™s the use when you have an a fraction of the options and customizations you have with any other browser and the fact that edge doesn?€™t support a lot of websites hence why windows 10 still has internet explorer tucked away. I can draw on the web page i?€™m looking at....Whoopee, it's the app version of internet explorer on windows 8 with microsoft paint integration.The os feels more like a phone than ever before. If you boot up windows 8.1 then took a windows phone and laid it on the bottom left corner of the pc monitor screen you have windows 10. It almost runs like an advertising tool for microsoft to sell you useless crap via tiles and notifications popping up. I tried playing my games that i was running fine on windows 8.1/7 and there are many issues and graphics issues. Some games like borderlands/borderlands 2 have major graphic issues now where bushes and bullets look like paint blotches splattered on the screen no matter how much you play with the video options. Dead island, left 4 dead 2 and dying light will not work at all, they simply crash when launched so i?€™m wondering if my ati radeon card is having windows 10 update issues as they worked on 8.1. Wow just stopped working as well, battle.Net app freezes and looses track of where the files are stored on my pc, but now works fine since i deleted this microsoft spyware off my pc and went back to 8.1.Windows 10 update will override the drivers installed by your graphics card suite causing crashes, graphical problems and infinite restarts if the driver you have installed is not the one big brother has in their auto update. Again i had hopes that microsoft would actually deliver a quality product like windows 7 but instead we get a lazy freemium version of windows 8.1 that rivals google it terms of disgusting spying/data stealing for profit. Windows 10 is "freemium" not free, you pay for it by giving up every ounce of privacy for microsoft?€™s financial benefit. They baseically turn your pc into a microsoft server, your pc can as well be used to upload updates to other pc users/owners like a hotspot.I?€™m glad that i switched to osx again a few months back and only use windows on my secondary computer, i won?€™t be putting this garbage on my mac. If you do upgrade the first thing you should do is go into every settings menu you can find and check the privacy options, you will still be data mined just not as badly. You will have to do this more than once as there are for example two control panels....Named the same but both with their own privacy settings. The split personality of windows 8 is back in full effect . In short windows 10 is just windows 8.1 freemium edition, you even still have to right click the start menu to get control panel (one of them) and stuff quickly because if you traditionally left click on it, it wil just shows you apps and useless tile garbage, basically the windows 8 start screen in a box instead of desktop features and split to things you actually need.Windows 10 is a total failure, the people claiming it to be windows christ are simply dreaming or paid to say so, stick to windows 7/8.1. Windows 10 is nothing like windows 7, try it first on an old computer if you are curious. If you hate windows 8, windows 10 will not improve anything, you will still be using the same failed phone/pc hybrid operating system but you will have to give up all your privacy for nothing you can't do on windows 7/8.1. Apparently you will as well be paying for games like solitaire (1.49 a month) and 14.99 for a dvd/blue ray play back software. Hopefully anyone can see where this is going.Interesting to note:how can users trust microsoft when windows 10 is nothing but spyware? Microsoft's own definition of spyware is posted here [...]. The only way they get around their own definition is the fact that people are still "accepting" the privacy policy to download the software.From microsoft:what is spyware? What is spyware?With so many types of malicious software being spread around the internet, it is important to be aware of what spyware is and what spyware does. Spyware is a general term used to describe software that performs definite behaviors, generally without appropriately obtaining your consent first, such as:?€?advertising?€?collecting personal information?€?changing the configuration of your computerspyware is often associated with software that displays advertisements (called adware) or software that tracks personal or sensitive information.Microsoft believes it "appropriately" obtains our consent to monitoring via the "privacy policy".Avoid!!!I will be upgrading to windows 7/8.1 on my pc's while i have the chance to go back or in this case forward.*aug 09 - update: the patch in question is kb3081424 (ironically enough a roll-up of bug fixes) and during its update process affected users find it fails and triggers the message: ?€œwe couldn?€™t complete the updates, undoing the changes.?€ undoing them results in a mandatory system reboot, but as soon as the user logs back on windows 10?€™s update process kicks in and tries to install kb3081424 again..

You will be sorry!
I too am grossly disappointed with windows 10...It is like a wolf in disguise. Microsoft have tried to bring back windows 7, but in doing so, have added useless components such as cortina, and taken away valued components such as the windows media center. It appears that microsoft, are trying to get into the mobile, gaming, and tablet markets at the expense of a very good operating system...Namely windows 7.Going beyond all the all the yipe that microsoft have pushed into getting people to use windows 10, when it boils down to the nitty-grittiys of using windows 10, users just cannot do some of the operations that were readily available in windows 7.

Horrible... Don't do it!!
Pure crap. Released too soon with way too many issues. I completely regret putting it on my bare metal. I only ran windows 8/8.1 in vmware fusion on my mac.I totally screwed the pooch and installed on my alienware.Issues include but are not limited to-cannot recognize my exfat formatted hard drives - which is a microsoft designed formatcannot copy large files - backing up my virtuals to external hard drives continuously failscannot list all the applications i have installed in the start menu- google "512 apps windows 10 start menu"screen flickers are going to give me a seizure!!!I forgot how much i did not miss the blue screen of death. Luckily now it is sometimes black!!!Windows update is now more of a virus than a tools. You have zero control over it.Wi-fi works when it feels like it. Non-repeatable issuesall my browsers have issuesedge = turd... Who is the world design that mess??? Fire them... Now!!! It is not a browser. It is an adhd nightmare application.Do yourself a favor and stick with windows 7. I messed up and went with the every other release from microsoft is good theory.Yep, i got it for free. If they want me to install it anywhere else it will cost them $500 per box!!!

It's windows...Way better than 8 but seems to have a lot of stability issues when doing/after upgrades. Lot's of hardware compatibility/driver issues, especially with graphics cards

Windows 10 pro takes some adjusting to but is well worth it.
Win10 pro works like a dream. There are many things you must adjust to. For example: tiles can be made small and set only the ones you need. Pro can virtually turn off cortana via group policy edit unlike home version. Pro allows cortana to be a search bar for your pc similar to win7. Win10 boots so much faster than any previous version of windows i have ever used. If yours is slow, you may want to looks at ram as the issue. Office 2007 from cd works great. Open office works great. Winamp. Vlc, mp classic, all work great. Hallmark card studio, photoshop cs2, even audio grabber from early 2000 works good. Browsers: opera, firefox, palemoon, internet explorer work great. Edge has some issues with definite applications due to it does not support flash. So no adobe reader or flash in edge browser. Winrar, 7zip, winscp, putty all work fine. Mcafee total protection works fine although i am unsure about that expense. I am quite satisfied with 10 pro. However, with 10 pro, you can delay the anniversary upgrade. That upgrade did cause some issues to which i rolled back to win 10 pro original install. These issues are being addressed by ms and will probably be fixed in a near future update. And for you win7 users, ms update will begin in sept2016 with 1 single update. You wont be able to pick and choose. It takes same method as win10. Make sure your graphics card is supported in windows 10. Check with your pc/laptop or graphic card manufacturer. This can be a pain if it's not. My dell vostro laptop hdmi output is not supported in win 10.
