    I'm curious if we'll be needing a special suite of drivers like with 8.1 for Razer Blade Pro owners. Anyone heard any news of this?

    I have asus X550LB and I'll be upgrading to win10 immediately as it will be possible. My laptop lacks of drivers for win7, and win8 has holes that I hope to be fixed in 10 (hard drive load is the main). I have talked to some of my mates, and they said win10 is great.

    And the other point is, you have to move to new technologies, since no1 really likes winxp now :)
    + about gaming, xbox games should be available at win10, no? That makes sense of getting that upgrade :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Is it good? I used Windows 7 64-bit real fine up to now.

    To the people upgrading: the install media will be available on Microsoft's website. It's much better to do a clean install than upgrade.

    You computer might pull the trigger on its own. You should opt out and opt back in when you're ready. The offer isn't going away until July next year.

    I think too that I won't upgrade till at least most of the bugs are solved.

    Yeah, that's probably the smart call. Microsoft *claims* that they'll only download the 3GB upgrade and let you pull the trigger...

    Hi,
    I have been running the Tech Preview on my main machine (using Win 10 to type this) ever since December (the Tech Preview officially launched in October). Personally, I think it's going to be great.

    There have been lots of improvements over the last few months and of course, the start menu is back. Even if you are someone who likes the start screen, there is also an option to turn it back on and disable the start menu. Another cool new feature of Win 10 is Edge (Internet Explorer rebranded). Unlike IE, Edge seems to be faster and looks a billion times better. Also, it just doesn't suck like IE does. Yet another feature is Cortana. Personally, I don't use her since I prefer Google Now but I have played around with her (feeling weird right now :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) and she seems to be awesome for someone willing to use her.

    Basically, if you like Windows 7, there is no reason not to like windows 10. Windows 10, IMO, is just a prettier, faster, and more powerful (in terms of productivity) operating system then Windows 7. Compared to windows 8, the main changes are: 1) Win 10 is prettier and 2) the start menu is back. That's about it for my thoughts, hope this helped.

    PS: I very highly recommend anyone who can to upgrade to Windows 10.

    That's not, true. To be honest, I don't know why they even have a limit of one year. Basically, if you upgrade within the limit of one year, you have the latest windows 10 version forever.

    The only reason I can see for Microsoft putting a time limit at all is to make people feel pressured and rushed to get the new OS. It's all part of Microsoft's big push for everybody to have Windows 10.

    I've been using it for well over a month now and the only issue I've really had was Netflix not working properly, which has since been fixed. I've used 8.1 before so it was nice to have my start menu back and not have to deal with those tiles .
    As far as updates, I can't remember exactly but I'm pretty sure I have changed mine to download the updates but I choose when to install it.

    I think Windows 10 is a very welcoming update and would suggest you do so. Looks more pleasing to the eyes and easier to navigate through things in my opinion!

    So far, Windows 10 has been great, I have really been enjoying it. The change is astronomical when compared to Windows 8.1 I do miss 7 at times, but I cannot complain when I look at SSD performance and how everything just works as a whole. Hopefully they don't do the same thing they did with the Product Keys. What I mean by this is how if you have a Windows 8 key, you cannot use it to install Windows 8.1, you have to install Windows 8, update everything, which takes hours, then install 8.1 on top of it. Couldn't Microsoft have either kept the same key convention or at least emailed their users updated keys? Hopefully this isnt an issue with 10/10.1 when it comes out.

    I'm planning to update it, but not right when it launches.
    Just like Windows 8, it will probably require a lot of updates (By microsoft, but also by hardware/software creators), before it becomes better than Windows 7.
