    I've seen a lot of issues with the wifi after upgrading. Network cards needing to be updated, I'd wait for the bugs to be fixed.

    Did the update to 10. Its slightly easier to customize than 8, and its not as focused on the touch screen so much. It takes some time to get use to the new interface.

    But if you like your setup i'd say stay on the OS you have- if you're looking for something new then change

    I've upgraded so far its not bad. I'm running Bootcamp on my MacMini and i had an issue with the network card failing but weirdly enough i changed the Channel on my router and it hasn't acted up since. I like Windows 10. It took a little adjusting but my only gripe with it is the icons on the desktop tend to move around alot when i change displays like on my monitor its fine switch to the TV things move all to the left side of the screen

    If you are considering that free update to windows 10. Be advised that it is only a year long licence and then it expires.

    If you're upgrading from Windows 7, it might not be worth it to be honest. I still enjoy Windows 7 - but 10 is "supposed" to be lighter...I haven't really seen that so far. I like 10 though if you ever use your PC/laptop as an HTPC (kodi etc...). Windows 10 is a lot more suited to be on your big TV then Windows 7 is.

    The only thing I don't like about windows 10 is you can't turn off updates, when your doing something else it forces you to update which kind of sucks. Otherwise than that it seems pretty good. If you have an xbox one you can stream to your windows 10 computer within the same network and play games from your xbox one.

    7 is great. 8 and 8.1 are total garbage, 10 is a nice way to get rid of 8 and 8.1.

    10 seems to run a bit slow on my laptop, but I'm guessing I need to upgrade the RAM. Overall it's a nice step up from 7 and 8/8.1

    If you are on windows 8, then i would not advise to upgrade 2 windows10 because it is still unstable and when w8 is working great for u ehy would you update to version 10 ?
    I prefer windows 8 or 7 instead of 10.

    Definitely, windows 10 is better than windows 8, graphics are much nicer and user friendly
