    Yesterday I Macrium Imaged my Windows 7 partition to external, then deleted it and recovered the space into TP. I hadn't been back to Windows 7 since early October.
    I don't even remember what Windows 7 looks like!
    I haven't been back to Windows 8.1 since October!
    I should probably flip over there and do some updates!

    Trying to spend as much time in 10 as possible. A couple of hours a day on average. It seems to be stable to me. I have important business to do now and then in 8.1. However, I received permission from MS to install a copy of Office Pro 2013 on 10 during the trial period, so perhaps I'll be spending more time with it. I'll see how it goes.

    Right now I'm just living with it and using it all day.
    So far.. it's good but it does need work.

    Did a lot and continue to do some building contract estimate/bid work using a calculator and Excel spreadsheets. A numbers key pad is an absolute must with a calculator and Excel. I’d go nuts having to use the top row numbers. One of the drawbacks of a lot of laptops, although I’ve seen a few with them.
    Me too, Hippsie, me too! Believe it or not, I started out on a manual typewriter and got up to 55 WPM, even using those numbers way, way up there. Then we got IBM Selectrics and I got better, but when I started using computers with the keypad, I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven! I can't live without mine any more!

    My dv7-1245dx laptop is a 17" jobbie with a keypad, which means the keyboard is easy to type on, but the 15.6" g6 Series is a pain in the tookus.

    BTW, the Modern Store Calculator app is an absolute must to use. Try it once and I guarantee you’ll not use another. Perform multiple +, -, *, , or / without Enter (2+2+2) > It keeps track at the top. The multiple memory feature is great. It also has the Scientific and Conversion modes also.
    Hmmm, I'll have to try that out, although I have a "real time" Canon calculator with all the bells and whistles within reach of my right arm when I need to do a calculation. The calculator that comes with Windows is pretty easy to use; click on the icon in my QuickLaunch Bar and use the keypad for input.

    I'm using a VM for the W10 previews.
    I wont be installing and running W10 full time, until I can install a version that won't self-destruct (i.e. the final release).

    I hate having to install and uninstall things.

    This is the reason that I almost never install "trial" programs on my PC.
    If I do install a"trial" program I image my PC first.

    I agree that I would not install on my main computer. But I got lucky. I have some good friends who work in the computer dept. of one of our local universities. They have always helped me a lot. One of them emailed me a few days ago and said that the university has a laptop that they don't use any more. The guys at the university installed 10 on it and he asked me if I wanted to play with it. It is technically the universities, but I can use it as long as I want. So I went to the café to have coffee with him and he gave me the computer. How lucky can a young guy like get??? Actually I've had no big problems with it.

    My friend gave me a laptop (earlier this year) after I helped him recover data from the faulty HDD that was in it.
    It was actually his rich brother's daughter's laptop.
    His brother was going to dump it as he had already bought a new laptop for her.

    My friend had promised to give me his old 500GB SSD (last year) but then he changed his mind.
    I guess he felt guilty as he bought a new 480GB SSD for the laptop and gave it to me.

    Since we are at a build that will be here for a small amount of time I have installed Office 2013 Pro and will start working with that on this build. With the "Fast" piece enabled they builds have been coming pretty quick, didn't want to get all of Office on there for a short period of time.
