    I haven't voted yet as I haven't made my mind up. I'm running it in a VM at the moment (I have 7 and 8.1 in dual boot on my SSD) but may upgrade my 8.1 installation to 10 as there really doesn't seem that much difference to me. It's still 7 all the way for main OS though, while I concede that 8.1 is faster (so I presume 10 is too) 7 just looks so much better.

    I set mine up as a VM for around 30 minutes and then I loaded it as a primary over 8.1 and it's running just fine.

    I haven't downloaded it yet, but I am going to do it through VM

    Just downloading VMware Player now and will get Win 10 in it in the next few days or so

    No start screen and it's just a great desktop OS!!

    I'm either very brave or just stupid! LOL..
    But I have a DVD with Win8.1 so for me it's a snap to replace Win10 if I have to.
    So far.. working just great and it's fast!!

    I'll let you know around Saturday how things are going. I just decided to give Win10 a full blown test run with the programs/apps that I use on a daily basis rather than just toying around with it in a VM environment. So far.. This is going to be my primary OS.
