    I use windows 10 in vmware player as much as possible. Almost using it every 3 days. I give my feedback as much as possible and on there windows suggestion box.


    Going slightly off topic but with the gadgets that vulnerability affects gadgets that connect to the internet. Using the built in windows gadgets that do not access the internet do not really pose a threat.

    I also like to point this out:

    If the flaw is really that serious and dangerous, why did Microsoft not push it as a security update through windows update?

    Right there that seems odd to me. Don't get me wrong, the flaw does exist. But I feel like it is not as dangerous as they claimed. Through my own testing I was unable to get gadgets to do anything insanely risky, but that might be because I have uac on the highest setting. Not sure. I did not look into it that much that I would have liked. Most av products have prepared themselves for gadgets problems anyway since the flaw was announced.

    So far I have not seen an infection caused by gadgets, but it is certainly possible. But I think it is way more likely you would be attacked through your web browser and not the gadgets.

    I have a feeling MS is or will be pushing live tiles instead of gadgets.

    I'm still using it in VMware and like it, I've started to use it more than my main OS 8.1, even though I liked that OS and found nothing wrong with it.
    I've installed Windows Live Mail today, don't like the inbuilt Mail app, it doesn't have everything I'm used to and it takes longer to deal with your mail.

    i use it on my laptop as my main os. there are small problems but not enough to ditch the os as my main os. i dont use it for important stuff so i can accept the problems and changes microsoft makes.
    i understand i am taking a risk as even microsoft warns you of this but as i said i dont use it for important stuff and the stuff i dont want to lose i just put them on the cloud

    Yes win-10 has been installed twice to review the new builds and leave feed back on that build,
    Then removed,
    So no not an everyday venture
    I'm only interested in the interface not to see if built in apps function or if other programs function from a different os version,
    Cheers.

    Now a month without going back to Win7. I feel like cheating has turned to an affair.

    For the first time I believe that WIn7 has shown its age, an will be at last giving way to a worthy successor. If TP is as polished at pre-beta as this, imagine what it could be as finished product.

    I'm even more excited after several sessions at MVP Global Summit with the TP Team, although I cannot discuss anything that was presented. Am in a session right now on Cortana which may be an even more revolutionary improvement.

    Well, you take your tower and monitor, unravel lawn mower extension cord and go for a walk.

I finally installed Win10 on one of my PC's. My first impression is its Windows 8, but in my case without metro. I like the Start8, which makes Win 8 work like Win 7 better than the start menu in Win 10. Jack
