    I am very pleased with WIndows 10 Pro. I came from Windows 7 x64, I briefly tried Windows 8 and hated it, so I was afraid to try Windows 8.1 even though I read it was better. I only have a few minor irritations, like I can't customize the Lock screen, the microphone sound records very low compared to Windows 7 and backup is a little confusing (I still do the Windows 7 backup which is a setting?), but that' about it. I got to WIndows 10 as an upgrade which went very smoothly on a HP Zbook 17 laptop.

    Seems most are happy which is good , was Win 8 as easy to install or was the main problem that people just didn't like the features?

    Tiles and Charms were a PITA unless one was working off a phone or a tablet, sucked on desktops and laptops. Told this to Microsoft when we were beta testing it, one size doesn't fit all these days, as usual they didn't listen, now we have the bas***d combination of 7 and 8.1 that will satisfy some but not a whole lot of others.
    I've talked with a whole lot of people who eschewed 8, 8.1 and have no desire to move past a Win 7 type interface, they're happy with it and if M$ was smart they'd figure that out.

    At 65 years of age I am VERY stubborn. If I didn't like Windows 10 then I would be back to My Windows 7 Ultimate very quickly.

    People do tend to become quite stubborn with age , actually every older gent i know is stubborn beyond words , i mean zero flexibility at all , zero , zip, nada , not gonna happen in this lifetime , forgettaboutit lol.

    One thing i know , 65 is not old Mike , not even close , you know your old when you walk past a cemetery and two guys start chasing you with shovels , thats when your getting up there in age .

    I had the same problem with the lock screen with the upgrade from Win 8.1 on my Desktop PC. That was the only issue I found and I didn't like it so I done a clean install from the USB stick and Win 10 Pro has been working fine and I could change the lock screen to whatever I want to. You may have had the same glitch I had with the upgrade. My Win 7 laptop upgrade went smooth and all worked great for a week and then it got real glitch with Facebook games. My wife uses the laptop for that and she insisted on going back to Win 7. She never had a glitch since lol. And I may add that the revert back to Win 7 was flawless. Maybe in the new year I will try Win 10 on the laptop
    So far I am pleased with Win 10 Pro.

    cheers
