    Normally I'd agree but my first run with W10 on bare metal gradually broke down until it was unusable. I installed it one its own dedicated Samsung 850 EVO (dual booting with my 7 install on an Intel 520 Series) and at first it was brilliant, Office ran smooth, CS3, WinDBG, all great. The dual boot was trouble free too, but after a while things started to get buggy in 10074, the Search function went first by never giving any results, then Outlook wouldn't start up, then the Feedback app wouldn't open. Coinciding with this every time I booted into 7 it would insist on running disk checks on all of my partitions (which was not a quick process) so I decided to go through the Recovery Environment to fix 10 but couldn't get into it. Eventually I wiped the Samsung and will reinstall 10 as and when I get chance.

    The OS itself just seemed to degrade to the point of being unusable, maybe it's just down to it being a Preview, and while it didn't break my PC I can see how it would screw up some people's if they weren't 100% sure of what they were doing.

    Your description reminds me of the old Amiga PCs.
    After using programs for a couple of weeks, various function would stop working and eventually the entire program would become unusable.

    Maybe the dreaded "Bit Rot" has returned.
