    windows 10 pro x64 stable build
       28 Jun 2015 #1

    how stable is the latest stable build?


    I mean, as opposed to the "fast track".

    my real question: is it worth it to upgrade my main pc from windows 8.1 to windows 10, at this point, or am I asking for trouble?
    I tried 10 out a little on a VM, and it looked pretty good, but you don't really know what's cooking until you use it on a regular basis I don't want to find out the hard way that I can't live with it.

    Someone may correct me on this, but I believe that build 10130 is current on both rings.

    I had frequent hard freezes on my system with it, including times when the system was idle. It seemed that leaving the system idle for 15 minutes was an invitation to a freeze. (When I say "hard freeze", I mean that the system was in such a state that it didn't respond to the reset button. I had to hold down the power button to shut it down. I wouldn't have believed that was possible.) Your mileage may vary.

    10147 is much better for me, if still imperfect. It's a leaked build, but better than the latest Insider release.

    If you can't suppress the itch to play with Win 10, the obvious approach is to image your current installation. If you try a build and can't live with it (for 31 days), then you can "make it didn't happen" in much less than an hour, depending on the size of your boot partition.

    so far so good.

    I still like the classic shell start menu better than the windows 10

    If this is your main PC you are talking about, stay with VM for now. 10130 still has the memory error thing and 10147 is an unofficial build.

    If you mean fast/slow ring, mine was stuck in the slow ring. I could change in in settings, but the change wouldn't stick. That held whether I did a clean install or upgraded over 8.1. Others claimed that they could set it for fast ring.

    Not a matter of deep concern to me, as long as I can find an .iso or .esd online soon after the Insiders update becomes available.

    (I also have a fresh 8.1 drive image in hand. I can restore that in about 10 minutes. That'll allow me to try things that make no practical sense.)

    "Onedrive kept syncing my files over and over, with errors"

    solution is to change settings in onedrive so it doesn't sync through office.
