    Many large organizations would wait until the coast is clear and most of the bugs have been worked out before migrating to Windows 10. Enterprises have a lot more at stake when an OS doesn't behave properly.

    Give it at least six months before we can conclude anything from the trend. I suspect Windows 10 will be at least as popular as Windows 7. Microsoft has the knack of releasing a popular OS every other version, and since Windows 8 was a dud, Windows 10 should be a winner.
    Before i actually got to check it out first hand and see what it contains i would agree but the privacy issues are a huge turn off , it's mind boggling how intrusive MS has become(even if you can turn some of them off).

    The only thing i'm aware of that actually wants more personal info from people is "facebook" , they are just off the charts nuts. Even my parents don't know half the stuff some of these internet companies want to know.

    I have an MSDN subscription. I can run any Microsoft OS I want, past or present. I'll stay with Windows 10 thank you very much.

    You can add me to the list. I'm enjoying Windows 10 and have no plans of going back to 8 or 7.

    Even with Pro version to my knowledge there is no way to schedule updates like in the past. Can delay is all. If someone has a way to get notifications before downloading then scheduling a time please let me know.
    Here is something i came across in my learning more about Windows 10 -

    Stop Auto Window Updates :
    Windows 10 Pro users also have another option, and that’s to use the Group Policy Editor (this isn’t available in Windows 10 Home, but is included in the Professional, Enterprise, and Education editions). Hit Windows + R and type 'gpedit.msc' into the Run box. Hit enter. Go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.
    Double-click on 'Configure automatic updates'. In the window that options, select 'Enabled'. Use the drop down box below to change the setting from 'Auto download and notify for install' to 'Notify for download and notify for install'. Apply and OK the change.

    I believe i also read somewhere else that when you first go into Windows Updates you will not see the change UNTIL you click on 'Check for Updates', exit, then go back in and the options available in previous versions of Windows will be there.

    Sorry, haven't come across for anything for Home version users.

    As for my experiences with Windows 10, i am running build 10525 over an OEM Win 8.1 version on my laptop and running 10240 on my desktop as a dual-boot with 8.1. Only problem i have is trying to run the laptop on battery power - i get a blue screen if i start on battery power or pull the AC cord out to try and run on battery. Thread_Stuck_In_Device_Driver is the error and it points to both the video card (AMD Radeon R5 Graphics) which is up-to-date via WU and also to Direct X. Phoned support for Acer, they say it's Microsoft's problem, call Microsoft support twice and they say it's Acer's problem!?! Go figure!

    Until a few months ago I was on a very slow DSL line and had to be very careful about when I was doing downloads. It seems like Microsoft (along with many other companies that do automatic downloads) doesn't seem to believe (or care) that users with slow connectivity still exist. And/or they don't believe that such users can manage to manually update on thier own schedule.

    The above technique seems ridiculously convoluted but absolutely necessary for some users.

    Thanks, I have seen that before. Sure would like some proof it actually works before considering upgrading to 10. Any 10 Pro users here that can verify it does work?

    I'm absolutely loving windows 10...to me, it's the neatest looking and most fun use version of all the versions i have ever tried...
    In fact, for the last few years i pretty much became a diehard ubuntu linux user but with windows 10, they have actually wooed me back to use it as my primary operating system...which even shocks the "heck" out of me!
