Had it right from the start, upgraded from 8.1 for free, no problems at all. Did not like Edge, reverted to Explorer, otherwise fine. There will be no more Windows versions in future, so they say, so should turn out to be long term solution.

I upgraded to Windows 10 when it first appeared but I was disappointed because there were quite a few glitches with it, transferring files from a pc to a smart phone became tricky for example. So I uninstalled it, which you are able to do for several weeks with out any problems, reverting back to Windows 8.1. However after a couple of months and after reading reports that Windows had ironed out a few problems, I installed it again, it is free to do this by the way. Since this installation, like the previous poster, I have had no problems at all, and yes hand on heart I would say it is better than Windows 8.1 which had been my favourite system yet. You are still able to install it, try it out, and if you do not like it uninstall it and go back to what ever you were using previously. good luck

If you are currently using Win8 or Win8.1 upgrade, it really is a no brainer. Win10 is the operating system / interface that Win8 should have been.

If you are running Win7, then upgrading to Win10 will be a bit of a culture shock. Things will look familiar but will not work quite as you expect. Thankfully Google will find the answer for you so it's not too much of a problem.

Allow plenty of time to do the upgrade, there are a lot of files to download and the upgrade takes quite a time to complete.

If you don't like what you get it's easy to roll your PC back to your previous operating system..... and the roll back works!

You will have to move to edge though as they will end of life it soon. All IE's before 11 have now been dropped from support.

You don't have to use Edge - user Chrome, Firefox or whatever takes your fancy. There is no reason not to upgrade just because the browser is different - move on.

I presume you still have the facility to back save Word Documents to an older version (i.e. 97,98) and also to be able to convert to rich text format?

The Win10 upgrade is an upgrade for the operating system not the paid for applications eg if you have Office 2007 installed then you will still have Office 2007 installed after the upgrade.

Peter - I never said there wasn't a reason to upgrade - just that IE is on its way out anyway.

Microsoft have said they will support IE11 as long as they support the OS it runs on, and as W10 will be with us a long time, I don't see any problems with using it...
