    This is because they're too lazy to learn the OS to provide adequate troubleshooting. It's much easier to blame MS and tell people to uninstall the OS then it is to learn it.

    Pure laziness.

    Windows 10 home 64bit 1511 (OSbuild 10586.63)

    its probably because the pc support hasn't had enough experience with windows 10 yet to know anything about it.

    Any guesses from the folks here when Windows 10 will be ready for 'work' ?
    When it gets near the end of the free period do a full backup of your work computer and check it out to make sure it works, then upgrade to 10 to see if that works, if it doesn't you have the 8.1 backup. It's up to you, but that's what I'd do if I were worried about breaking something.
    Another thing I do is buy a new HDD, put 10 on that and your work programmes to see if it all works, if not stick your old HDD back in and carry on.

    Theres no question that there are many average everyday computer users on these forms throughout the day and night just looking for info and help of some kind for Win 10 .

    I would say it's a mix of half and half .

    Hah, can't afford to experiment with my work computer like that at all. It will be more like "don't fix/upgrade it if it isn't broke". I will simply be vigilant about threads like this, sense when professionals/commerce start adopting Windows 10, etc. Hope that won't be too far off in the future, but I am far from sure.

    Fair enough, if you're unsure at all better off to leave it.

    It is not only me, this is not the only forum where I tossed up the question. There seems to be no signs of early adoption of Windows 10 for work related use.

    Makes me wonder what the 100 millions are that Microsoft is touting, all enthusiasts and techies?

    Personally, Windows 10 will not run software I am using, so it is a no brainer, I won't upgrade. I think W10 is a downgrade. I hope eventually it will just fade away. There is just nothing I like about the OS.

    I don't like Edge, I think Cortana is a bore, I think the interface is ugly and boring, it's apps are lame. The app store is lacking, why would anyone update, just because it is new? Sounds like a bogus reason to me.

    The Reps are spot on, as far as I can tell.

    I am surprised you would ask this... If not for the new features (Cortana, Edge, Live Tiles, Store Apps, and much more), you gain extended support.
