    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.

    You're going to enjoy Win10. It's just really nice and it just works!!
    No start screen and it's just a great desktop OS!!

    At some point I will probably just replace 8 with it
    Not feeling that brave at the moment, lol

    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!!

    be interested to hear how it goes after a few days of normal usage
    hopefully no major issues arise

    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.
