Keeping up with the latest of staying with what you have?

Box Checked-"Allow multiple choice: Give users the ability to select more than one answer."

Mac?

I am strongly considering going to 10 on the new 8.1 I just received for work from my company.

I am a big fan of Windows 7. I upgraded a couple Windows 8.1 computers to Windows 10 and find I like it much better than Windows 8.1 There are some enhancements for Windows 10 in the pipeline that should be extremely interesting as well.

Downloaded 10 on my laptop. Not bad. Haven't had time to really play with it much. T previously had 7 on it.

Just did the upgrade. Took a long time so best to do overnight or when you don't need your computer for a while.

I like it!

I put 10 on my Surface Pro 3 last night. It went very smooth. only issue was the video driver needed to be installed after the upgrade. Being that it is a Microsoft product and newer, I would expect it to be in the upgrade. I like it though.

I did use the windows 10 preview on a windows phone and that was horrible. A lot of issues. It eventually bricked the phone on monday.

One of the updates was for Solitaire, pay a yearly fee or sit through 15 second ads. It will be interesting to see what other upgrades they have added

Got 10 now. Best part is it got rid of that annoying screen creep on the right side of my screen everytime I touched the pad.

I really have no idea. It's whatever my IT guy gave me. Seems to work fine. Got macs at home. They seem to work fine too. In general I'm really beginning to just hate technology.

I am thinking of staying with Windows 7 on my laptop and desktop. I called Microsoft yesterday with some questions. One of them was what would I lose during the install. They said if I had Microsoft Office installed on my computers I would lose them during the install.

Someone else said above they do not have Microsoft Media Center with Windows 10 that is a big negative for me too.

Sticking with 7 for now.

Unless you have an old version of office that isn't compatible, you won't lose it. I have office 2013 on my surface and it stayed.

10 isn't bad... There are a few annoying things I'm still trying to find in the settings to revert but overall I'm ok with it. I've been using 7 since it first came out. I was just ready to look at something different for a while.
