    From what I am hearing, I think I will not upload the Windows 10. My computer is 3 years old, and I am doing just fine with Windows 7.

    I'm a computer tech and I won't move to Win10 until it's a little more mature. I generally have a rule that if it's made by Microsoft, it has to be in Service Pack 1 before I'll move to it, or recommend it to clients.

    I'm also waiting to make sure I have time to try to troubleshoot if some of my legacy software doesn't work. Right now, I'm running some Janome embroidery software that they stopped supporting as of Vista on my Win8.1 machine. I'm reasonably sure that Win10 will be an added challenge.

    I'm past 30 and have it on one of my machines...

    Please be careful with that machine! Microsoft stopped supporting XP more than a year ago: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/wind...f-support.aspx

    This means that any new security problems that have come to light since then have NOT been fixed. You no longer get updates for the machine and it could be very insecure. At the very least, I wouldn't do anything that involves financial transactions on it.

    I just reserved a copy also. Probably wont download it, as my computer is about 4 yrs old and time for a new one. I got to read up on all this newer win10 and all.

    I downloaded it over the weekend, tried it and went back to Windows 7.
    I didn't like the format and I couldn't
    find many of my pages. I played with it for awhile and found 2 of my regular apps missing and my Norton's. I found it too frustrating having to search for something that used to be so easy to use-

    I'm running System 7 and am happy with it. For what I do, I have no need to update.
