Been on Windows 10 since the very first date of release and 8.1 prior to that. 8 was a bit kinky but systems ran better on it, 10 has been fantastic, but I'm a long-time IT contractor so I'm at a bit of an advantage. You have to know the initial settings that need to be done when you install it or you'll run into some issues, but they are an easy Google.
No issues with anything on 10 except for aging, but that's more my issue.

you can still get laptops/desktops with Win7 Pro from business laptop/desktop providers like HP and Dell....same as with XP before, businesses are usually the last ones to adopt the latest Windoze OS...consumers who buy the consumer retail laptops have little or no least the WIN10 Pro/Enterprise version (not free) gives you some choices with regard to privacy and updates...for the free personal edition Win 10 users should read (and understand) the new license......

I don't know why people are having issues with Chrome on Windows 10. Our home Windows/PC laptop came from the factory with Win8.0, became much nicer with Win8.1, and was upgraded to Win10 when I decided to let the offer go ahead. I normally use Chrome for all web browsing (other than access to Hotmail), with no issues of note - under any Windows version I've used. It clearly can work fine.

[QUOTE=Jim Bennett;150445]
I have not had a single issue, other than getting used to a few things. To me it seems more intuitive to the way I work.

Since I got my first computer with Windows 3.1, and still had to do lots of stuff in DOS. I have heard lots of complaints as new versions are put out. I think the issue is more that one must learn a few new things, more than the new versions don't perform well. /QUOTE]

Unfortunately not all users are that lucky. As Greg points out, without some tech knowledge it's possible to have some issues.

I'm not resistant to change. Heck, my first computer was a Timex Sinclair TS 1000 that I put together myself. A whole 2 KB of RAM. Later had a research grant from Apple to develop a CAD program for the Apple 2E. Dual disk drives, no hard drive. So I've adopted and adapted to a lot of computer changes over the years. What I don't like is the way MS underhandedly slipped in Win 10 by using security updates as a trojan horse.

I'm proud of the restraint shown by the Mac users.

You can download this simple program to prevent upgrading to Windows 10: . It uses the approved Microsoft method of turning off the Windows 10 update.

I'm very happy with Windows 10, however I don't agree with the methods Microsoft has used to push it on the Windows 7 and 8 users.
