Ok, have better things to do now. I was installing and setting a Linux on an old laptop during this discussion and now I'm finished and very sorry it will not run W10. Would have finished long time ago with half of effort.

Agree (or at least sympathize) with a lot of this, but (painfully) adhering to my personal rule of thumb to stick with any new Windows OS for at least two weeks (as in, use it exclusively) before jumping back - I often find that I've grown accustomed to the new OS, and while I can usually honestly say that the old OS did some things better, the new OS often has improvements that aren't available in the old OS and are useful enough to keep me.
btw, I come from the "liked Windows 7, LOVED Windows 8" camp.

I'm lucky to have some of each OS, although I have just retired my last XP. I am keeping two copies of W7 and one 8.1. The 8.1 has been upgraded from one of the earliest W8 cheap upgrades from XP and has been one most reliable operating systems that I have ever had. Although I have been using W10 since it first came out, I still find 8.1 easier to use.
