    Not surprising that with such a huge user base experiences will be different.

    Personally I ran Vista for years without any problems worth mentioning. I have 3 x Win7 systems which are nothing but trouble.

    Win8 runs just fine and so far Win10 is doing the same.

    So, based on my experience Win7 was the worst MS offering and Win 8 is the best. And Win10 is so underwhelming that I can't be bothered with it, especially as MS seem to think, IMO, that desktop users are an after thought.

    I can just see MS going the way of Google/Android which doesn't bode well for serious users i.e lack of stability of product.

    One Drive is available for 7 as well as 8, 8.1, and now 10 only 10 sees it included. Personally here I simply prefer local storage over Clod I mean Cloud storage where no one else can gain access to anything important. Fortunately the only thing seen by OneDrive automatically snatching up things was suddenly finding the icon in a temp folder I keep snippings and screen captures in with it likely assuming that was all photos?

    That was seen on the initial upgrade while so far hasn't happened on the subsequent upgrade to repair tended to a day or so later and the full clean install just seen to. It was likely a fluke of some sort while the sight of it was a concern at first about things being done automatically while with every previous version admin user permissions were required. W7 would have automatically prompted for those permissions so you can't say there isn't any downside just because 10 is new.

    You have to weigh both the Pros and the Cons with each new version as it comes along. So I don't have any real issues with 10 as I am slowly going over each aspect having known it would be better then the previous two versions!

    When first coming up from XP through Vista to 7 the loss of the option Vista had for setting Classic folder views was an erk with 7 at first sight! Yet I've now run 7 since beta! I think the expression that fits things best for 10 would be "If it feels good go with the flow!" and once I got past the initial possible bugs from the upgrade process 10 has been running quite well thank you!

    I am not a Windows 10 fan, it has nothing over 7 or 8/8.1 in my opinion. Cortana isn't an issue since I already have Google Voice and Edge, let's face it, is a dog. Perhaps in several years they might get the bugs out.

    We have 8 computers in the household and will continue to keep the ones that are Windows 7 and 8 and 8.1 as they are, I see no reason to upgrade, NONE. Other than trying to get rid of the stupid GWX icon. (uninstalled it and turned updates off) It angers me if you tell it you don't want the update, it should remove it. But there again it just MS trying to force feed everyone. Personally, I don't know why people would want Windows 10, unless they have a pirated copy. IMHO
    Yes, it seems like an incomplete OS, never mind, we have another year to fix them all, I will keep my 8.1 until everything is fixed to my satisfaction, Win 8.1 functions perfectly for me and not going to immediately jump to Win10

    I had another solution and now have two systems with both 10 and 7 configured in dual boots. The main case sees the two on separate drives while the second saw the OS split in two quite evenly to see a clean install of 10 go to the second primary. The second case is portable and connect to WiFi so that others can see what 10 is and decide for themselves. Plus this will allow some other testing of things having taken notice of the For developers section since I know a program developer by chance. :)

    Agreed.
    I think they must have labelled the charts incorrectly.
    On my PC, W7 boots in ~60 seconds these days; it wakes in ~6 seconds.

    I think Windows 10 is faster but only because they've made it bare bones theme and taken out most of the features that were in prev versions.

    Agreed, my Win 7 booted in 20 seconds, Win 10 boots in about 35 but my programs run faster on 10
