    Lucky you , i only heard a couple people say that , most of what i have read from people say it's very hard to tell a difference .
    Well, maybe I am special.

    Maybe I am making up my experiences because I secretly am paid by Microsoft to post positive things about Windows 10.

    (I am not, by the way.)

    So emphasis is on Free !
    Exactly!! I installed Win8 because it cost me only $40. I would not have paid $120 for Home or $200 for Pro.

    We'll never know just how FEW folks would have upgraded to Win10 if MS continued the $120/$200 license fees instead of giving it away.

    I wasn't asking about that. I was asking about his statement that people were just checking out W10 and deciding whether to keep it or not.
    Isn't it obvious that people are checking out 10 and deciding whether they are going to keep it or go back to what they had ? I think so , can you provide proof that everyone is updating to 10 and definitely going to keep it , i didn't think so.

    People have 30 days to decide and thats what ( obviously) their doing.

    I agree. Besides which, how do they even know they can go back until AFTER they have upgraded? They certainly aren't told that by the Get Windows 10 app.

    My upgrade to Win7 those many long years ago was free. I wasn't interested in 8 so it didn't matter. The free upgrade certainly got people to upgrade sooner rather than later. I would have upgraded, even if I had to pay for it, just not as soon as I did. For those whose Win10 is stable, they will be content and few will revert back to a previous version. In much easier to use on a desktop than 8, and works as well as or better than 7. Once the 3rd party drivers are sorted it will be the OS of choice for normal users. There will always be holdouts, and those that have special reasons to stay with whatever version they have, but for most 10 will be just fine, either as an upgrade or on that new machine they're going buy.

    I would have to say that some of the facts quoted on the links seem a little dubious

    This from the apple one is an example ...

    "The last two years alone the number of users of OS X has tripled in five years"
    It seems plausible that there may be as many as 30 OS X users these days.

    In your estimation.

    In reality, at least I admit I have no information one way or another, and that it's my personal observation/guess/thought that people are not deciding to "keep Windows 10 or not"...unless perhaps they have difficulties with it, and roll back to the previous 7/8.1 version.

    I have no numbers either way.

    And quite frankly, I have absolutely nothing invested in the future success or failure of W10.

    I like it on my system, but don't give a fig if 75 million people shout "holy crap, this sucks, get me back to my previous OS!" or "Someone help me put Linux on this thing!" or...you get the idea.
