    Win 10 - will you upgrade?

    With Win 10 out in just a few days time, was wondering if the majority will go for the free upgrade straight away (from win 7, or win 8/8.1) or wait for a few months while any creases are ironed out, and then upgrade? I'm tempted to go straight into it but could be a bit risky...what d'you think?

    I've the Windows 10 Insider release running as a VM on my Mac for yonks and it's been trouble free, no issues at all, better than 7 or 8.

    Still not a patch on OS X though, only got it for Visio.....

      Yeah, I've been following threads elsewhere from ppl who went on the insider release and there have been good reports thus far, hence my being tempted to just jump straight in.

          Yup, go straight for it on the first day. People who actually get IT will figure it out, people who have fallen into IT will hold back.

            will install on my backup laptop and use it for a while before installing it on my main pc. Can't be worse than os x 10.

              Going straight on my Surface Pro 3, but holding off on main laptop as Client's VM needs to run on it, and they have only just got Win 8.x support sorted

                  No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent.

                    I'll probably give in to temptation and end up doing it, though I can't think of a reason to change from Windows 7.
