Hi all !
I have been following the news about Windows 10 for a few months now, and I am quite hyped. It appears to be user friendly from the reviews i've seen. But I know I should wait until the bugs have been worked out. But I really want to try it on my spare computer.What to do...

With any Operating system, whether Windows 7, 8, 10 or 20001 or Apple, Linux, Android or anything else. If you wait till all the bugs are gone, you will never install or use anything.

Windows 10 releases a new verson every 6 months, and with every new version comes a new set of "bugs".

As Derek already said, if you prefer to wait until it's "bug free", you will never install it.

If you want to be very safe when trying it on the spare PC, you should consider getting a spare hard drive for the installation so you can always go back to the old one if your unhappy. That way you can format the new drive and save it for later, or use it as a storage drive if you don't like 10. Also check to make sure you can get all the drivers you need for the spare system for Windows 10 before you even try. A flash drive would be an excellent choice for that duty since you can use your present system do put them on it for installation later. Consider putting stuff like firewall, backup software, virus protection and 7zip onb the flash drive as well to get you started.
