    I would not consider you to be a religious person, to put so much faith into 10. 10 is fine as you said, it runs very well, but it will never be better than 7. XP and 7 are still legends in stability and performance, only lack of the driver support slowly puts them out of the picture. 8.1.1 almost made it to the hall of fame, but MS screwed up ignoring users. 10 is just heavy, have problems with software/drivers, worse than 7/8. Maybe 11 or 12 will be "it", but not 10. 10 is more like Vista, too many new features, which need to be polished over time and I doubt, that DX12 will save it in time. Service Packs might help, but by the time, 11 will be out.
    Sorry but 10 is definitely not Vista-gate at all. I have not felt anticipation for a new version of Windows since Windows 7 and I am eager to see what's in the forthcoming build.

    I do miss the days of XP with its solid performance but I would not go back to it now. We have had a decade of hardware advances and XP just wouldn't have optimal support for newer hardware.

    No idea what you mean by 10 being heavy, runs perfectly fine on here.

    Ten is running just fine here too, even on old PC's celebrating their tenth birthday.
    The driver package is more complete than Vista, Seven or even Eight.

    If MS don't screw it up, I say Windows 10 will be a Keeper!
    I.E. or it's replacement? Forgetaboutit. MS had twenty years to fix IE and they muffed it, so Firefox is my default Browser.

    A new OS with no browser at all would be just fine with me.
    I seem to remember something about the EU wanting that!!!

    . . .and, what is it that Microsoft could have done to make IE better at least for you? I mean what was so bad about it. . .me, I had no problems with it at any time especially after an ad blocker was designed to work with it. . .

    It would not go places and do things that we needed it to do, thus I and thousands of others used Netscape.

    And how about all those thousands of "Fixes" some of which could crash the Windows OS?

    So I and a lot of others had to disable MS Updates years ago. It just wasn't worth all the hassle, when Firefox worked so well and did everything we needed it to do. Nuff said!

    I downloaded the ISO to Windows 10 TP, 64 bit, build 10041 this morning, burned it to a DVD and installed it on a six year old HP Laptop.

    After some tweaking, tuning and setting up, it looks like this:



    Except for the build version in the lower Rt Corner, it could be XP or Win-7. lol

    It's installed and runs without incidence.

    Cheers mates!

    I noticed that the links on the download page are still for build 9926...
    Baixe o ISO do Windows 10 Technical Preview - Microsoft Windows

    When I try to update via Settings I get this error:
    Click image for larger version.

    After reading this I'm not sure if I wanna try 10041.

    Here are some known issues for build 10041

    • Some people might hit an issue where the username and password boxes do not appear or don’t accept input when logging in, which will prevent them from logging in. Possible workarounds include clicking the “Switch User” button, using Ctrl+Alt+Del, or pressing the power button on your PC to sleep/resume and try again.
    • It is possible to manually lock your PC during the initial out-of-box experience. If you do this, you will have to hard reboot your PC and restart the OOBE experience. (So don’t lock your PC during OOBE
    • There are several accessibility issues in this build, which may make it difficult to use with Narrator or 3rdparty screen readers. Additionally there is an issue where using a Lens after enabling Magnifier may cause the screen to be unusable.
    • Some apps in the Store Beta will fail to install or update due to a licensing issue.
    • In this build, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:
      • Open powershell as administrator
      • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
      • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    • You might end up in a state where windows open on your desktop are accidentally visible behind the Start Screen, Task View, Snap Assist, and when rearranging windows in Tablet Mode. This makes it difficult to read text and find what you are looking for. The intended design is that that only the wallpaper is visible behind these surfaces.
    • Creating virtual desktops may result in missing or black thumbnails in Task View.
    • You might notice a chess knight icon on your Lock screen to the right of the screen. This was added by the Lock screen team so they could tell via screenshots if someone was using the new Lock screen or the old one, and will eventually be removed in a future build.
    • Font sizes on the Lock screen on devices with high DPI can be really large.
    • We currently have the Tablet Mode notification turned off by default to address some of the issues we’ve been seeing. The notifications can be turned back on via Settings.
    • The touch keyboard doesn’t show up on login screen which prevents you from unlocking your PC when Narrator is on.
    • Some people might see frequent prompts to restart to install updates, even though no updates need a restart. This prompt can be ignored safely.
    • When you take a picture with the camera app on your PC and tap the circular icon in the top left to view the photo you just took, the Photos app will launch and then crash immediately.

    It has been really fun and exciting for us at Microsoft to work with you and hear your feedback as part of the Windows Insider Program so far. We will continue to listen to your feedback about the program and evolve over time, and we sincerely hope that it’s something for which you’ll feel proud to participate.
