    No complaints from me.

    Hi there

    what version of W8.1 did you update from -- I've been using W8.1 Enterprise and it seems to want to re-set / remove all your existing apps.

    Cheers

    I don't have enterprise just the "regular" Win8.1 Pro with Update One. When I did my update it kept the data and all of the programs/apps. The procedure went smooth and rather fast.

    I was also successful in upgrading from W7. All the programs I had installed on W7 seem to work just fine on W10. The only thing I noticed is that option to change over to the Start Screen is grayed out and can not be checked. I noticed that Brink has a tutorial on this and will see if option 2 will work.

    Feels like faster 8.1, yet it takes two times less space then 8.1, that is just wow. 20GB vs 10GB.
    9,7 GB actually and that includes some software installed, so it is like 9 GB only, really amazing.
    Though TreeSize shows 11,8 GB, that is strange, since it should be less, but it still great anyway.

    Hi there
    I think it was MY mistake -- I'm running ENTERPRISE W8.1 and obviously downloaded the NON enterprise version of W10. I'm now re-doing with the ENTERPRISE version which looks like it's updating OK.

    Be careful in which version you download -- there's a NON enterprise and an ENTERPRISE version. If you can see a Windows to Go icon in control panel then you have the ENTERPRISE version.

    Cheers

    That may be an illusion... Or, more accurately, they fixed the illusion of using a lot of space that Windows 7/8 had.

    In earlier versions, Windows used "hard links" to point to the same file multiple times in the WinSxS directory, and this caused Explorer to report a lot more space "in use" than really was. They may have finally fixed this.

    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    Experience so far has been seriously disappointing. Did an "upgrade" from Win8.1, and although it looked like everything carried over OK, and the previous Win8 apps also work OK (two things I did not expect), NONE of the Metro apps work. They flash quickly full-screen, immediately minimize, and then when reopened, present only a blank screen/window.

    I was able to use Metro apps inside a Window in 8.1 using the Stardock app -- so this is a giant step "backward" for me.

    I'll try using this for a while, and if no "fixes" are posted for the Metro app problem, will just wipe this and do a clean install.

    UPDATE: Forgot that I had the Stardock app that puts Metro apps into a Window (ModernMix) still running. Uninstalled that, rebooted, and now the Metro apps work OK.

    Installed via iso USB doing a fresh install, it installed quickly and didn't even need extra drivers tp run a modern i7 setup.

    Next test I will install it again to see how it upgrades my Windows 7 install, and/or Windows 8 .

    I like that the Start Menu is back even though I would of used Classic Shell if it wasn't.

    I hope Aero Glass will be made to work on this too, I haven't check that forum yet to see.

    Everything responds crisp and it seem peppier to me, although I don't have a lot of programs installed yet.

    I like it, and I can't wait till the first full release so that we can see all that there is on this.

I've installed Win 10 on two PC's, one a clean install and another upgraded Windows 8.1 on an old Atom based machine. No real major dramas so far, everything seems snappier than Windows 8.1 and much better than Windows 7, which I rarely use anymore....
