Windows 10 Upgrade...

Any of you guys upgrade to Windows 10 yet?

The roll out seems to be random and taking a while.

It looks much better than the Windows 8 garbage.

I have an upgrade but waiting for reviews before pulling the trigger. Judging by prior MS releases, this one should be pretty good.

I need a new laptop before I go upgrading my OS. My shit's like... five years old. It still works, but it's not nearly as fluid as many newer laptops.

I've read about this option.

I've heard a good amount of people having failed upgrades by forcing the system into Windows 10. Either that or invalidated keys once it's finished.

Interested to hear some feedback on 10. My home comp running 7 has had the offer for a few weeks now. Work laptop running 7 hasn't said anything yet. Another laptop at work is running 8, very anxious to get rid of that POS OS.

I've been using 10 for months now and it's the best iteration yet. That chart of good/sh!t/good/sh!t is pretty spot on. XP was great, vista was garbage, 7 was great, 8 is garbage...

edit: Apparently the most recent version released today uses your machine has a zombie host for p2p sharing. Turn that off....

What about machines for photo editing? Are you in Lenovo sales or work for a third party?

PM me your thoughts.

Just did a clean install on my windows drive and it's super quick even for a non-SSD, much quicker than the preview build I was running before. I've read there are problems with Nvidia drivers and this latest build so if you're on an Nvidia GPU maybe hold off for a few days.

edit: As much as I hate to say this but Edge, the IE replacement, is actually really good too.

I've heard nothing but good things about Edge. Looking forward to the "new IE" being a competitor again in the browser world. MS has been doing big things recently. I am glad they came around and are getting people excited about MS.

I'm going to upgrade despite my Nvidia NVS 4200M on this laptop. Then I'll do my desktop and see if it dies or not.
