How is Windows 10 working for you?

Based on my experience with a number of clients this is a summary of what has happened with the new Operating System.

Findings
  • Pre-installed on a new computer.  This is normally more successful than upgrades. Generally a clean install with no baggage works better than an upgrade.  Some users are having performance issues though.
  • Permission based  upgrade of windows 7/8 computers. To some extent success depends on the complexity of your computer setup. For instance if you have installed many  pieces of software the upgrade process has more to deal with. Maintenance or lack of it may also make a difference. Some of these upgrades have experienced problems.
Will I like windows 10?

This is a common question and like all software preferences the answer is very subjective.  You may  like it and you may not.

Perhaps what you are asking is will I cope with it?  If you’re happy and flexible about learning a new operating system then you will be fine. If you don’t want to make the effort then it will take longer to get to grips with.

Do I have to upgrade?

The short answer is no. You may feel a little left behind but it’s your choice.
