    Video drivers were the only real issue/glitch for me. I had to install the latest NVidia drivers manually to get all three displays running on my desktop PC. My screens flashed when windows 10 installed its drivers and I had three screens until I rebooted. Then it went back to just the one monitor at a low resolution?

    The only issue I have found is third party drivers and then only one of 75 programs installed. That program is Logitech F710 wireless controller. This upgrade appears to have brought along all files, folders etc. in good working order. Completed installation from Microsoft Media Creation Tool for Win 10 on the (late) evening on July 29, 2015 the first time around. Of course in the steep learning curve phase now.

    FYI. A service pack is coming in mid August 2015.
    You mean "update", they don't call them service packs anymore.

    OK, as far as the start menu button not working, I'm not the only one with the problem. From MS community forum:

    Windows 10 build 10061 - no start menu unable to open settings - Microsoft Community
    What build are you complaining about?

    Builds as recent as 10130 were basically unusable for me.

    The current build is 10240. I've been happy with that. It may be about as reliable as Windows 8.1. (Which was never perfect on my hardware, but it wasn't bad.)

    As with any OS upgrade I've seen since XP, it runs the risk of not installing properly. There may be no drivers available for old hardware. (Drivers are written by the hardware makers, not Microsoft.) Appliance PC makers (especially for notebook PCs) may not support the upgrade.

    Every time Microsoft releases a new OS with an upgrade offer, I worry that a lot of people will try it who probably shouldn't (without help). 10 is the worst so far, because it's free, and basically pushed on the whole world of Win 7 and 8 users. (I know that it's not mandatory, but it's a shiny new OS. And it's free.) I hope that it doesn't drive too much trade to the PC repair business.

    well, the taskbar still decides not to auto-hide, and gets stuck un-hidden. I have to restart explorer every time... :/

    Little by little this OS is growing on me. I thought I would have tons of problems with a 7 yr old system, but thankfully it's running as smooth as butter now for 2 days.I still miss full Aero and wishing I could figure out the 20 - 30 seconds of black screen during each boot... but happy non the less. Will be upgrading to a slightly newer mobo (Rampage Extreme III) and about 12GB of Corsair DDR3 Vengeance and maybe a better video card... maybe that might solve the black screen :)

    Actually we're beyond build 10240, we are on RTM now.

    Hello again friends. I'm making assessments about the Windows 10. Please share with us your thoughts on Windows 10.

    Classic Start menu is really nice.
    If you download the free upgrade to windows 10, make sure that you make a back up of your windows 7 or 8 program. After 1 year if you get a problem the cost of the repair will include the full price of Windows 10. My son, who warned me of this, is a computer tech at a well known computer shop in the UK, and as such deals with Windows 10 all day long. He currently is setting up new Computers with Windows 10.
