Not yet... my 8 works fine. No time for a new steep learning curve and I'll wait to see how it goes with others.

 Good Tuesday morning Evelyn. I'm not a huge fan of Windows and I have not made the upgrade yet. My only tied to the PC world is my inspection software.

Great question Evelyn. I'm with many of the others who have commented: I'm waiting to hear from others about their experiences upgrading to Windows 10. I went through the pain and considerable effort of upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 last fall when I purchased a new laptop - and I'm still cursing - but part of that is because I bought a 2-in-1 device. It's supposed to be a laptop AND a tablet, but doesn't do either very well. Maybe upgrading to Windows 10 will be on my "to do" list for early 2016.

I can't upgrade fom Windows 8 since I have never owned Windows 8.  I am still on Windows 7.  I have yet to see any reason to change but I have not been investigating either.  Most likely, I'll wait and see what happens over the next year or two.  Nothing I use requires Windows 10

I won't be upgrading yet, because our MLS is having issues with windows 10. I know I could use chrome for a brower, but I'll wait.

8 to 10 was immediate as 8 was a crappy system, but the 7's we have not upgraded.

On my desk top I did. On my laptop, I will hold off. so far, I don't see the MUST have dynamic at work. Function remains the same. One thing however, it is more information based intrusion meaning the system wants to get into you as you get into it

I upgraded from Windows XP to Mac OSX a long time ago. Slight learning curve but the reliability and lifespan of the computer make it worth it (to me).

Evelyn Johnston Yes, I upgraded about two weeks ago. I haven't noticed much difference. When I first loaded it, it corrupted some of the "My Video", etc. files. Fortunately, I had no loss of data. It also takes forever to boot up.

I heard it was awful.  Not ready to do that.  My friend upgraded and it was a nightmare.  They are changing back.

I did and had to go back to 8.1.  It really messed up my PC.  I'll check it out again when they get a better handle on it.

No, I am waiting to see if the new thing is better than the old, and the win 7 computers will never be upgraded.

Evelyn Johnston  - not yet. I think it's going to take a while before I am comfortable with it.

I heared the new browser has some issues. Hope it gets fixed soon.
