    Windows 10
       17 Aug 2015 #11

    I upgraded from Win 7 around a week or so ago. Loved Win 7, and for the first day or so, hated Win 10. Once I'd had a proper play around though, I changed my view and wouldn't consider going back. I had a few issues initially, but most were no doubt due to upgrading over a fairly old Win 7 install, coupled with some possibly over enthusiastic cleaning up of old programmes.

    Yes, it's easily forgotten that the cut-off for the free upgrade is 7/29/2016...lots of people are taking their time for one reason or another...Lots of the "You'll have to take Win7 from my cold, dead fingers" sentiment will mysteriously evaporate before the cut-off, I'll predict...

    Still Buggy


    I changed from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 pro. The upgrade was long and annoying but eventually it worked. I still have problems with WiFi failing and Start Menu failing to show, both of which were fine on Windows 7. I'll give it a couple of months to see if the many patches cure these snags but I'm beginning to feel that Windows 10 wasn't quite ready for issue yet.

    In case you haven't heard there's a 30 day window of opportunity to revert the upgrade. After that the backup of the previous OS is subject to deletion. Note also that after reverting to the previous OS you can again upgrade to Windows 10.

    It will be really interesting to see the final figures of course, I only know personally 5 people who upgraded, all of them are now back on their original OS.

    This may not be what it appears, I suspect a few, like me wanted to see what it was like but having found a few bugs or the interface awkward have resorted back to (in my case) Windows 7, and like me may upgrade again after SR1 or a few issues have been sorted out. The main reason they gave for going back was the forced driver updates (that was the one that screwed me also).

    I may invest in a retail version of W10pro at some future date.

    Hi there

    Just to contradict these sorts of statements -- I also know plenty of people who LIKE W10 and are sticking with it.

    Arguments like these really carry no decent scientific validity -- some will like the OS others won't.

    The only thing we CAN say with 100% certainty -- is that Ms have obviously "Re-invented" the desktop OS again (not that I ever thought it would go away)

    --smart phones etc are BRILLIANT in what they can do - but as a 100% replacement for a "Proper" computer --No way.

    I'm quite sure if people were to look at some of my OLD Posts on W7 / W8 Forums -- I expressed many times that "Tablet Mania" etc would never replace the Desktop / Laptop - and I think I'm being proved correct. I was really ridiculed at the time as being an old Dinosaur as the future of computing was with "Mobile" devices.

    Well things are turning out a bit differently -- Mobile devices AND desktops can (and are doing so much better than people forecast a few years ago) co-exist.

    Interesting also how my HATED consultancy firm "Gartner" has totally been proved WRONG -- again (just have a look at some old posts of mine on W7 / W8 Forums) , Almost NOTHING heard from them now for at least 6 months !!! -- nobody will miss them anyway.

    Cheers

    It make sense that we'd see an initial spike in fast early adoption, if only by beta "Insider" participants and enthusiasts. After that, it's gonna be some time before the average PC user either realizes they CAN upgrade or decides to bother. And as somebody else pointed out, it will be even longer before we see businesses & corporations make the switch, if at all. Most corporate offices are comfortably on Windows 7 and have no reason to upgrade anytime soon.

    All of which is just to say, a slight slowdown in the adoption rate after the initial burst is par for the course. I still foresee Windows 10 being at least as popular as Windows 7 if not more in the long run.

    Unfortunately, we're only seeing one side of the Win10 picture in the media -- because they are not reporting the failure/return rate of Win10 users -- those Win7/8/8.1 users who did not stay with Win10 but returned. We probably presume these are small in number because we're not seeing reports in the media, but when I had to go to HP support to rebuild my HP laptop that the Win10 Upgrade trashed, I found hundreds of reports of such problems. And every day, there are scores more. And, that's just HP. Sony has already told their customers NOT to upgrade until October. Wonder how many other Win7 OEM laptop vendors are being swamped with Win10 upgrade problems, as well.

    And yeah, I know that MS and their fans are patting themselves on their collective backs about the HUGE adoption rate of Win10 -- but come on! It's free!! It's not surprising that MILLIONS of folks have switched over.

    HI Jimbo
    I wasn't attempting a study none of it was meant to be presented as 'scientific' just simple observation based on the only people that I personally know that have upgraded so far, sure many will stick with windows 10.

    I speculate like others here that in maybe 6 months, or just short of a year from now people will upgrade again (I myself made sure to make an ISO for a fresh install) truth is it's way to early to draw any conclusions, I do wonder though how forthcoming Microsoft will be about how many roll back to a previous OS.

    Cheers

    Probably non-qualified drivers holding back some of these upgrades.
    Non-qualified drivers and non-compatible hardware as well. I do still have one Win 7 Pro system need to replace a video card for Win 10 Pro upgradability.
