I will upgrade but I will end up waiting a little bit to check with driver compatibility, etc. I've played with the tech demo and everything seems nice and gives me an experience similar to windows 7. My question for them would be to be able to have an ISO for upgrading of if its simply off the "anytime upgrade." I do plan to upgrade my laptop to a SSD main drive and a large 3TB+ "junk" drive and around the windows 10 time would be a great spot. I could probably go the route of creating restore disks, restoring to the NEW SSD, and upgrading from there....but that would just take longer.

Knowing the issues with upgrades, I think that should be a valid option to in-place-upgrade.

On topic: I have adopted the OS as a keeper (at the time of this posting and have papers to return the item to KMart for refund).
Running it exclusively (other than light browsing on tabs & cells).

I will upgrade but depends on how the Windows 10 works.

It depends on the viabilty of it as a buisness system. If companys look at windows 10 and say "Nope, not doing that". Then there is no money involved in me learning it, and little point in doing so.

... It's useless to learn something if you can't make money out of it?
That would tend to limit ones growth/experience greatly. I would imagine that this type of constraint and inflexibility would cripple a business at worse and would leave one in the lurch (if one will) should there arise any queries regarding newer OSs at the least.
I have gone so far as to have Windows 10 installed on a rescue laptop (Dell 1545) so that our clients can test drive it (if they are so inclined). It also gives us a platform on which to test programs and familiarize ourselves with newer technology.
Windows 7 will go the way of all other OSs given time. It is still MY fave, but the masses always want Johnny come lately.
We have had a few clients ask us to install Win 10 already. lol

I have Windows 10 on a laptop as well .for testing purposes and really like it so far- as far as OS's are concerned,I started with Win98 Second Edition- then to Windows 2000 Pro-and was really upset when MS stopped supporting it- so it was on to XP- and same story again- on to Windows 7 , which I am pretty comfortable with right now- I skipped Win8 and 8.1 because I didn't have a touch screen monitor- still don't- and now learning my way around Windows 10- will this be the last one? Probably not, but hopefully will be using it for quite a long time. Maybe they will start naming them with Roman Numerals after this??????
