    I like Windows. I've used Windows since 3.1. (I also worked for a company that adopted IBM OS/2... those old IBM salesmen could sell anything!). I staunchly defend Microsoft and Windows in tech discussions with Apple Fanboys and Linux nerds. I never wavered, even through Windows M/E, and Vista. I studiously avoided 8 and 8.1. But operating on the theory that MS gets it right on every other release, I decided to give Win 10 a try. My faith is wobbling badly!

    I first tried upgrading my non-touch Toshiba laptop. Mehhh. While the upgrade process ran smoothly for me, and I had read enough to know what to do, it was still a bumpy experience. I hate the new (unmanageable) start menu so much, I bought Stardock's Start-10 application. Then, to be fair, I picked up a low end Asus Transformer Book (T100taf) to try the tablet mode. That is when I figured out that Windows Tablet is a cruel practical joke perpetrated by MS. I'll bet Steve Ballmer is still laughing about it. I documented my complaints in a couple of lengthy posts on my personal bog. If you are interested, here is a link http://www.larryc.com/archives/1493. It is a rant, but I didn't feel like re-typing it here and boring you if you don't care. Suffice it to say that I will NOT be upgrading my Win-7 desktop, or my wife's Win-7 laptop to Windows 10.

    Smart move not upgrading any more devices to Windows 10. My friend saw the notification a while ago and asked me about it and I told her to wait because I wasn't sure if her laptop would have enough space. Now I'm on these forums with my own laptop bumbling along because I installed Windows 10 as soon as it was available! Lesson learned!

    Problems installing and using Win 10 do not happen to everyone. I have Win 10 installed on 3 laptops and one desktop that have not had one bit of trouble yet at all. All my computers were updated within 2 weeks of the Upgrade release date.

    A lot of people are recommending not updating until after the first major update is released to help iron out bugs.

    I've stuck at 7 as 10 does not offer enough new stuff to compensate for the backward steps and the security has gone md.
