    I looked at upgrading my main laptop several months ago but received warnings about the need to re-install several programs so left it because I didn't have time.

    Today I decided that a wet Friday in November was ideal. It takes several hours but the end result seems OK. Only a couple of programs and drivers needed updating and all the stuff I use regularly works fine.

    I'll see how it goes and then update the Vivobook I use in the van if it is OK.

    My main laptop has suffered no ill effects from the upgrade so I updated the Vivobook today - multi-tasking whilst we made pork pies :) Seems OK.

    Having had a few months experience of 8.1 on my desktop have found it fine, perhaps a bit better than 8. Still prefer to keep W7 on the laptop though.

    Not surprised they are skipping 9, it's too close to 8 :)
