thanks! maybe I'll install it after all..
Didn't realize Win 7 got the upgrade. I must plug my desktop back into the network.
Assume I get the upgrade. I haven't double clicked the icon yet (too scared)..
I know it's CNET, but for what it's worth... probably the same... ish.
Yeah my desktop PC has been unplugged from internet (ultimate anti-virus) for last 6 months, just been using my laptop. Going to have to turn it out and see if I can get the free upgrade
if its win7 or 8.1 you're good to go. Although you may have to wait in the "queue" but if you google there are ways around waiting to download it.
mine is ready, scared to see what programs aren't going to work though
I'm going to have to get a pirated copy of Windows 7 to get the free upgrade to 10 on my old laptop since it's currently on Vista.
I'm concerned about all the things I've heard about it only being free for the first year and then paying for a subscription.
Pretty sure thats complete BS
There's no subscription, that'd totally undo what MS is trying to achieve with 10.
I also heard if you don't share the post on facebook they'll start charge a monthly fee as well!
Microsoft is the Devil .... never forget this.
"Windows 10 now wants you to pay for Solitaire"
I've read that even pirated copies will get the free upgrade, but they'll basically nag you until you have a valid key for it.
This was also the case in Windows 7.. and 8. I guess the ads are a bit more dominant now.
Like fuck I'm going to pay a dime to play with myself.
Sure lotion and Kleenex but no more ...............
Upgraded at home and work.
Been having intermittent issues with my broadcom Ethernet adapter. My connection will randomly die and not come back unless I reboot. Twitter search indicates that I'm not alone.
Updated yesterday. Everything seems fine, but for some reason my Virus scan (AVG) had to be reinstalled.
Built in Windows defender (AV) is all I use at home. I had to uninstall and update my symantec installation as part of my upgrade at work.
No issues here, although I find that it can be a little slow to respond at times.
Every once in awhile I'll notice it'll take a little bit longer to respond to a click here and there. I'll likely just reformat and do it from scratch rather than upgrading to see if that'll make a difference. Other than that, no driver/hardware issues.
I am leaving Win 8.1 for now, too many issues reported online and my current setup works perfectly.
I installed the broadcom drivers directly from broadcom instead of the Microsoft ones being used. Knock on wood, it's been 24 hours and things have been stable.
I'll do a clean install eventually, but this install of 8.1 was only about a month old so I figured I'm probably good for now.
first impressions are favorable.
Had a sound driver drop out for some reason on the first cold boot after the upgrade on this laptop (haven't upgraded the desktop from 7 yet..), other than that, works perfectly.
I had a few issues with 8.1 that seemed to have been fixed since upgrading to 10. I used to have to reset the video driver occasionally because sometimes after exiting a game the resolution would be all distorted and the only way I could fix it was with a tool I found online. Even after a fresh install of 8.1 I still had the issues once in a while. I haven't had any problems with it yet with 10.
upgraded to win10 pro since I had 7 ultimate
Works fine so far, no issues as of yet
Do you have to reinstall all of your apps?
I didnt have to.
It gives you the option to delete everything, or to keep your currently installed apps, etc
Cool, thanks. The wife is considering an upgrade from her hated 8, but I'm not jumping on it until SP1.
I did my clean install and everything seems snappy. I don't notice any slow downs here and there anymore.
Ps if you are going 8 to 10 you need to install 8.1 first
