Even though I prefer 8 at the moment, count me as one of those with a PC ready to get 10 when its released, as long as the price is right
hoping that win 10 on a desktop and on the phone is going to be a good combination and they work well together
just need to see how win 10 is going to work on a tablet then all is complete
Why should I stop testing? I'm simply asking what people are finding so better about W10. They've promised a big step up from 7 and 8 and I don't see it yet. Hope it comes soon.
I believe many posting on this thread don't quite get what the article is saying. It's not talking about users that currently have Win 7 or Win 8 running on their machines doing an OS upgrade to Win 10. There's nothing in that for the manufacturers.
It's referring to the people who have postponed upgrading to a NEW MACHINE because they didn't want a machine with Win 8 on it. According to the article, there's potentially 600 million machines in that category.
Those of you that have existing machines that you plan to do an OS upgrade on to move from Win 7 or Win 8, aren't included in that number.
Not the apps...
but the interface and many other features of the new build, I just don't care for it.
My real number one gripe is;
I fail to see the need of 2 tiled interfaces, Windows 8 already exists (the optimum), why put another tile menu on the desktop menu
"not having a riot" just an opinion... Sorry, I wish I liked it
Radically different? Then why are a lot of people testing it now? Shouldn't people wait for the radically changes before testing any version?
One thing I do agree with, I won't be upgrading myself either unless it is free and Microsoft guarantees it won't brick your hard drive. Even then I would still be afraid to upgrade.
Security updates continue for sometime for windows 7 even after January 2015. Security updates built in that is funny. Even Linux, Mac's, Bsd and other operating systems don't even do that. One major issue with windows 10 is they got to fix is bricking hard drives. I don't know if Macrium Reflect image/clone restore would be able fix that issue.
