Now also installed on my MediaPC dedicated to music. May well be a placebo effect but to me it sounds better then Win7/64, using Roon and very, very happy I jumped on that train. Been a long time JRiver user.
There are a few issues that can prevent Win10 from installing, but after following a few steps that I found online I was able to force a Win10 upgrade onto my laptop. It is pretty sweet, but I really like 8.1, so what do I know?
I believe that once you clear the path for the update, it is the most seamless and precise MS operating system update, yet.
To those who are having problems getting it to latch:
Go to C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution/Downloads, and delete everything in the download folder, but not the folder itself. Next, open a Command Prompt with Administrator rights. Type in "wuauclt.exe /upgradenow", but without the quotes. Then, try again. That worked for me.
And, how come some folks recommend it highly (Windows 10 upgrade) and others almost swear not to?
Who should we trust first; people who have it now, or people who will have it later on? ...Or the Apple people?
Some who swear not to may be having problems with the Windows Automatic Update and it screwing some drivers which they then cannot roll-back.
Looks like a couple of recent automatic updates can be causing a bit of grief for some users, and other drivers pushed can be causing hassle for some Nvidia cards (following some sites AMD has lesser issues for now).
Just a heads up if using Windows 10 as many will be caught out by the way it will use your bandwidth to distribute patches similar to P2P unless change the option.
Seems for some (all?) it is enabled by default; tbh this sounds like a really stupid idea to me as I would think in the future it would be susceptible to man in the middle attacks and then malicious code transmitted.
Not sure how it applies to patch-apps.

Was a German tech site that made me aware today the options need to be checked.
I never change to a newer operating system in the first three to four months of its existence. I would rather have you adventurous guys get screwed, I mean find the flaws and wait for patches to be made, before I risk my computer and data before entering unknown territory.
If you make a mistake, or miss an important upgrade...if you forgot your password...if you are less than skilled in the arts of computerized compositions...if you miss a beat too often...a security alert or too many downloaded programs of the same...some older ones that need to be uninstalled...if you have to wait 24 hours before you can sign in again with a new code and password...life itself becomes less miserable.
...I'll wait...too many things are lost forever.
I take no pleasure in feeling or superior or inferior to all my equals. If this would be an Apple thread...then I might say some of that sort too.
All I'm saying is this; if it ain't broken and there is better out there why not take that risk to improve our lifestyle? ...I'll wait some more, meanwhile I'll ask questions to im prove my knowledge, then in time I'll make the best move that I can think of. ...If I succeed, bravo, if I screw up...then I might have learned something.
The main thing is this; to never being stuck in time or in space...but to always move forward.
Because it's only then that we are fully living in the present. ...I'll wait some more, but not for too long...just right.
@ Gary; you remind me of my brother (he's younger than I)...he's an Apple (iMac Pro) guy. ...Not better, and not worst either...just different.
* By the way, I tried to contact him this morning via Skype...only to learn that I needed to upgrade Skype in order to talk to him. ...Well, ...that didn't work...too many issues with password, retrieval, repeated attempts...tra-la-la...that now I have to wait 24 hours as all my chances have been expired. ...How do you think I feel? ...Totally under a spell, the Microsoft spell. ...This should have been done automatically; I simply don't understand this very frustrating complication.
I'm not mad...I'm very cool now...but still...this PC world is no better than real-life people ripping off other people.
Hey, don't mis-construct the meaning, because life is beautiful out of all troubles. ...I'll wait to get back Skype, for even thinking about upgrading to Windows 10.
I hope Microsoft isn't forcing anyone about that...
True; if you are not a PC expert you have more chances to encounter major issues than resolving some. ...No fun to lose contact with your family and friends, no fun @ all.
