    I will 'cos it's free. I didn't bother with 8 or 8.1 though.

    I will use Win 10 when I buy machine with it on. These days I don't "upgrade" operating systems with the exception of moving from 8 to 8.1 as it wasn't a massive change. I'm happy with 8.1 on my two machines at the moment.

    I'll await upgrading to windows 10 until I build a new machine, and then only upgrade to 10 if they haven't made a complete pigs ear of it like they did with 8, hence the swift introduction of windows 10.

    I'm happy to stick with 7 ultimate for now.

    Three laptops here - one running XP as it is a dedicated machine that is the "brains" for something else. I could upgrade but as it's not broken........

    One runs a 32 bit Windows7 system as the accounts package doesn't have an upgrade and then there is the 64 bit Windows 7 system.

    Will only upgrade when the machines stop working and I have to.

    Given it's every second release of Windows that OK - 98SE (yes), Me (no), XP (yes), Vista (no), 7 (yes), 8 \ 8.1 (no), 10 should be a yes and as it's a free upgrade (assuming it's lifetime) from 7 I'll probably upgrade our machines on a phased basis. If it wasn't a free upgrade I'd be going down the same route as my XP machines that are now Linux Mint.
    Been dabbling with the pre-release of 10 and looks OK.

    Have both a Mac PowerBook and high end desktop PC and happy with both operating systems..

    Windows 7 is as stable XP ever was, and as good as Yosemite 10.10.2

    So no, won't be upgrading to W10 until W7 is unsupported..

    If it aint broke , why fix it.. ?

    is Microsoft's philosophy..

    If it aint broke, 'fix it' until it is broke ?
