    Going to hold off installing


    I am going to hold off installing windows 10 as I don't know whether my anti virus will work and any of my other paid products I have until new drivers and bugs have been ironed out.
    Also if my laptop crashes then I am stuck from contacting my girlfriend who lives the other side of the country and it is the only way we keep in touch every evening via Skype and e-mail
    I have in the pass always been one of the first to upgrade but reading on this forum and other forums have decided to hold off and girlfriend has done the same as she also needs her laptop for her work
    So come on Microsoft sort it out

    Really, Microsoft should sort out 3rd party software and drivers functioning? Isn't that somehow (not neccessarily 100 %, but still) up to the 3rd party?

    If I only had one way of contacting my girlfriend I'd be nervous too, but to be honest it doesn't matter how long you wait, something could go wrong, but the longer you wait hopefully things will be better.
