actually , i Installed it , and i faced some problems with some programs , so i returned to Windows 8.1
Windows 10 need more than one year to become stable and to be compatible with all programs

The way you describe it a program fault not a OS fault, and there should be no excuses for your applications to be incompatible with Windows 10 because Windows 10 is been out for more than 2 months, so that should give developers plenty of times to re-code their applications to compatible with Windows 10.

for e.g : HIPS for Eset smart security 9 not working on windows 10 , you need some action to Enable it

Hi Atatrah , I have been testing Windows 10 on my main pc since it was released publicly and I really like a lot about it, previously I only had Vista and Window 7 and have no complaints about Windows 7. I never experience windows 8 so going from 7 to 10 I think I dodged the metro thing as windows 10 has a reasonable customization of start menu. Also on my aging PC with quad core intel q6600 ddr2 ram etc Windows 10 really has made it like a new optimized pc and makes better use of this aging hardware. If I want to I could go back to 7 and be very comfortable with it. My only concern on 10 is whether all my windows 7 and older but stilll relevant software is going to run without resorting to compatibility tweaks etc . I think 10 still has things to be worked out and allways will, but in my general view every operating system I ever owned was a ongoing stream of patches updates workarounds etc coming from Microsoft , as Well as people chopping and changing there video drivers to make things work on there favorite games etc . Sorry about the long answer but 10 is great but I'm very able to drop it in favor of running 7 with my older programs and I I have no need at all for Apps from the store. :)

I have been using vista for many years and change to 7 and to 8.1. Now I'm using Windows 10 since his release.
I must to say that I have some big problems with my wi-fi on my laptop when I change 8.1 to 10 but now all my problems are solved.
Windows 10 is a kid, has much to improve and become more stable. W10 has some bugs and sometimes my apps crash soo I think W7 is better because is much more stable.
It's difficult compare an old OS(W7) to a young one like W10, if someone can compare them.

for e.g : HIPS for Eset smart security 9 not working on windows 10 , you need some action to Enable it
It happens to me too, Hips don't work when I install ESET. I have to reboot the system to make it work:)

I installed Windows 10 a few Weeks ago.So Far So Good.It is getting Better with every Update (New Drivers,New Features).It has been Steady on my Laptop. What I didn't like about Windows 8.1 was The Charms Bar.It is good to see The Start Menu back in Windows 10. I am OK with Windows 10 Right Now.

I have been excited:):) although (I must confess) apprehensiveo_O as well whilst considering jumping ship from Windows 8.1 to 10.:confused: That said, I truly prefer...
  • Windows 7 SP 1 ...even though I spend the least amount of time (online) on my wife's claimed system which has proved to be the most trouble free for us; and thusly 'I' have been delegated to..
  • Windows 8.1:rolleyes: which has developed, after 3 years, into a reliably stable system which has proven to be quick, responsive, & still (IMO) 2nd to it's older brother, 7, mainly because overall crashes & blue screens, though few now, have been cumulatively less upon our nearly trouble free older 7 OS. Next in line are..
  • Assorted linux Distros (in VMs) and and installed lubuntu (I'm typing from now) on older hardware. XP sleeps with the fishes on this same hardware.:p
As for the future, I shall continue to wait & watch such threads as these while further weighing the good, the bad, and the progressive developments of Windows' latest, though not graduated yet (at this time) to "Greatest", OS.

I love Windows 7.
Hi OpenSecLabs, do you love Windows 7 for similar reasons?:)

For me the best is I do not have any with him 8.1 Windows problems.
To install the Windows 10 is still wait until the end of July 2016 I time let it be well polished because it's a little lacking to full satisfaction.
