Any feedback will be appreciated.

8.1 works sweet. If it works fine don't see any point in changing it. I won't be changing until work does.

I use the beta on my Laptop, And its pretty good. Its all the best bits of windows 7/8 and more. I use windows 8.1 on my main PC, and will definitely upgrade, since its free if you have windows 7/8 already

I upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, bad mistake. Computer started up slower & ran slower, not faster. No fun at all. Reverted back to windows 7 last night. Much happier now.  Also I read from different sources that al-tho Windows 7 is upgradeable, it isn't a good idea.

I love it, we are getting about 30% of people through the door with issues, 9 times out of 10 its because their pc sucks or they have lots of shit installed. Tip: uninstall antivirus before upgrade
Fucking things up since ages ago.

"Upgrading" (as opposed to freshly installing) your OS is in general a bad idea. Everything bad comes across from your old installation (corrupt files, viruses, unnecessary software, fragmented files, incorrect settings, etc.) and everything bad comes in from the new OS (larger files, more memory usage, new software=full of bugs, etc.).

Full hard drive reformat and fresh installation a year down the track when major bugs are fixed is the way to go.

Anyone need a hand with doing it I might be able to help.

I Disagree, It works quite well these days.

The way the new migration works is different to previous and it does work 9 times out of 10.

But yes, You cannot beat a fresh install which will also work 9 times out of 10.

Certainly in the XP and Vista days, that was the case. Anyways, why not take the opportunity to remove excess crap from your PC?

In any case, for 95% of PC users there is no point in going away from Windows 7 at the moment.

I guess for most people it's just the annoyance of having to reinstall all the programs (I know I find it annoying trying to dig out all the installers for various programs I have), drivers etc. and having to re-set all the unique settings you might have had (power options etc.). I agree that Windows does have a general "rot" as such and a fresh install every now and again is very beneficial.

I run 8.1 enterprise so no free upgrade for me :-( but from what I've seen at work it looks pretty good. A couple of the engineers are running it and they've had no complaints.

This is exactly what my partner said. He was using Windows 10 for about 3 weeks (giving it a chance to redeem itself) but no, he's now gone back to Windows 8.1 and is much happier not telling Microsoft about every time he logs on to his network.

Windows 10, I've been using it and after the upgrade, it killed my WiFi. Luckily my partner is a computer tech, and was able to fix it quite quickly.

My main servers run CentOS 7.
I've tried offering Ubuntu & Mint installs to customers and it's always a big no.
As for Win10, I've tried around 20 times & it has never worked so I've just given up.
