I have had zero problems with windows 10 pro.... it is just not as yuppie looking as apple's os x and laptops. it doesn't create unneeded attention when I am at the coffee shop with it
I have a i7-5960x 8 core that runs Windows 7. It's my 800lb gorilla. I tried Windows 10 in a VM. Ran fine. However, I am waiting until the crap apps are uninstallable. You know. things like Windows Phone, XBox etc. It seems Microsoft listened when many of us on laptop and desktop PCs said we didn't want the touch screen interface. However, they completely missed the point that we won't be using our desktops, and most laptops, as mobile devices. If they want to default install all the mobile app garbage that's fine, but let me uninstall it. The start menu is a scroll fest. Having to splunk past all the useless apps just makes it that much more painful. Let us easily uninstall all those off our machines to help clean up navigation.
That said, I have a craptop that runs Windows 10. This thing doesn't have the power to run Windows 7 going downhill with the wind at its back. However, Windows 10 runs fine. While I hate my craptop, thus the name, I am impressed that Windows 10 runs just fine on it. Windows 10 really is a decent OS. Microsoft just needs to finish polishing the UI, maturing the Universal App Development platform, and migrating the rest of the security features from Windows Enterprise to Windows Pro.
Windows 10 overtakes XP and 8.1, still lags behind 7 - CNETSix months after launch, Windows 10 has finally leapfrogged over both XP and 8.1 to become the second most popular desktop operating system in terms of Web traffic.
In January, Windows 10 snagged a global market share of 11.85 percent, up from 9.96 percent in December, researcher Net Market Share reported Monday. The latest number showed a healthy upturn following several months of slower growth in adoption.
At the same time, Windows XP usage actually inched up about half a point from last month to 11.4 percent, while Windows 8.1's cut of the market remained flat at 10.4 percent
The increase in market share for Windows 10 signals that the new software may finally be getting a measure of mainstream awareness. Following the poor reception to Windows 8, Microsoft is eager to prove that its successor, Windows 10, is an appealing and user-friendly operating system.

My laptop so did all the other ones I have all came with OS pre installed and IE11
So you are saying every single one IE11 was not set up right.
It Froze and crashed on every single system.
Two laptops were changed and even set up in the shop and IE11
Still gave trouble.
BIOS and drivers where all up to date
Anyway since disabling IE11 and using Edge only
None of them have given us trouble since
That's where I love Chrome. It always works.
You will find that one of the main differences between OS X & Windows is that while Microsoft lets the user interface with many settings and options, to customize the way it works, OS X does not allow that sort of thing. In OS X, just because you don't see it doesn't mean it isn't there--it just means that Apple is not exposing those functions to preferences that can be set by the user (like device drivers--they're as much a part of OS X as they are in Windows--but Apple hides them from the end user whereas Microsoft exposes them.) Apple prefers to make those decisions for you and if you don't agree that's too bad... It's one of the reasons I prefer Windows hands down.
