phaeron Posted August 12, 2015 Author Share Posted August 12, 2015 So you already installed Window 10 for free that offer from Microsoft ? Like Window 10 better than Window 7 ? That I am using currently 7. It does offer free. I have not been installed it yet. Don't want to get too much into Windows 10 in this thread, but... I ran the Preview builds in a VM, and my HTPC is now running 10 RTM through the free upgrade offer, upgraded from 8.1. I have not yet updated my main computer although I will eventually. For Altirra, you will not really notice a difference in operation between 7/8.1/10. In general, Windows 10 is neither the spawn of the devil nor the savior of computing; ignore the raging fanboys on both sides and get your advice from level-headed sources (i.e. not Reddit). Few things to be aware of: make sure your desktop/laptop vendor has Windows 10 drivers available, as a few don't and have explicitly warned to hold off upgrading; don't upgrade if you have Windows Media Center and can't lose it; be aware of the Windows Update and Defender changes for Home Edition; performance is generally slightly better but not groundbreaking; application compatibility is generally very good compared with Windows 7. In any case, an OS upgrade is always a major undertaking, so don't upgrade before you're ready, back up your data and be prepared to reinstall if things go south, and keep in mind that you have about a year to upgrade free if you want to wait a few months for initial issues to be ironed out. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
