    Ditto. I am so happy with it I could quite happily wipe my 7 install and whack 10 on my 250GB EVO drive. But I won't in case I run into some compatibility issues.

    Very pleased though and I will be getting it when the retail is released :)

    I am running W10 TP on a separate SSD, just like I do with both W7 and W8.1 Pro.

    Hi there

    Finally got it all working and all apps (so far) OK on it !!!!!!!

    I like it -- only ONE niggle -- the Menu -I can't change text size so it looks too tiny on 4K monitor.

    However I don't really use the menu any more so OK.

    One PC as Native, two others as a VM - now working 100% OK with proviso as above regarding menu text size.

    Will test NETFLIX and SKY GO tomorrow - as well as Windows to go. Should keep me busy.

    Think it's too early to vote...MS haven't rolled out everything yet, but as it is right now (assuming it remains stable), I'd run as my main OS.

    While in the testing stages I'm going to dual boot with Windows 8. The only problem I have seen so far is with two drivers which I think has to do with the chipset drivers. The drivers from HP will not load. I get a wrong version of windows and the install stops. When Windows 10 goes final I'll probable go with a single boot of Windows 10. I do have 1 complaint that is with me and not Windows 10, I keep moving my mouse cursor to the right hand side and nothing happens. Old habits are hard to break! :)

    I am too :)

    Was gonna dual boot with 8, but 8 was initially my secondary partition (only 30GB, Win7 had rest), so I used Gparted to extend my Win8 partition and it exploded . Refused to boot into 8, so here I am, 100% Win10!
