Personally, I took the plunge right away, when it was released 29th July. I usually wait a bit, letting others be the guinea pigs, but I had proper backup, and was not too pleased with the performance of win 8.1 setup I was using. So, I went through the motions, waited a while and guess what? When I fired it up, it performed flawlessly straight from the first boot, and let me tell you: that is definitely a first as far as I am concerned. I then spent a day or so rummaging through the settings and getting things set up my way, rather than the Mickysoft way, and now I am quite happy with it. The user interface is vastly improved, and it is a good deal faster and smoother than its predecessor. I could not envisage 8.1 becoming the preferred choice in workplaces. I think Win 10 will be. My only objection thus far is that it wanted to share my WiFi settings... A default, no less. Now I would like your opinions.
