    Well, I ran 10 in a VM for a few days, long enough to know that it's a keeper. Loaded up the disk, cleaned the drive with diskpart and installed it on its own drive. This is going to be fun

    The poll was originally published in the Chillout Room as a light-hearted jibe.

    Maybe I should I re-publish it with my original intention for the 4th option : "Im a Luddite - I prefer to stay with the new Windows XP"

    Im currently running it full time on my main computer, but since I have a macbook with Yosemite, today's agenda is to see if it will work in BoootCamp along side it. :) Have the Windows 7 drivers, which should be compatible with Windows 8x.

    Straight to 10 on the MacBook. :) Should work, or be a challenge at the least. :P

    I've dual booted with 7.

    No regret so far but, it lacks the glitter of 7.

    Hey, I like eye candy.

    I have already installed Win 10 as the single OS on my SSD and I am loving it. It seems to be snappier than 8.1 and more intuitive as well. So far, I think it is a winner.

    Running W10 in Vmware, just like running W8.1, from a removable OCZ Vertex 3 SSD on my Windows 7 OS. It isn't likely that W7 will be changed anytime soon.

    The W8.1 virtual system is used for my business and shared with OSX Yosemite via the removable SSD. Installing all of my apps in W10 would take too long. Not to mention that in April of next year the tech preview license will expire...
