Has anyone here made the switch to Windows 10? If so, how do you like it?
I keep getting the same thing. I read (somewhere) that Windows will force the upgrade on 7 users sometime. They're supposedly going to do it automatically.GeoHawk said:I keep getting notifications pop up on my screen offering the free "upgrade". I'm pretty happy with 7, so probably won't switch.
I don't think it will force you to upgrade to Windows 10 but I do know the free upgrade is only good for a year, (June/July 2016) after that it will cost you if you want to upgrade. I have Windows 8 on my laptop so I will upgrade after the first of the year, I figure they should have most of the bugs worked out by then.Speleos said:I keep getting the same thing.

We've tested the restore to the previous version quite a bit here at work and it seems to work just fine. If you don't like 10, go back (I think you have 30 days until the restore files go away).janaya3 said:I made the "upgrade" to Windows 10 on my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and still finding it awkward to navigate/use. I too got the click her to upgrade for free and Microsoft will let you know when your upgrade is ready a while back so I did so not intending to do it any time soon. Unfortunately I was on call rotation the weekend I inadvertently updated and sure enough I couldn't log in through our work-hospital server so had to go physically go in instead of being able to just check a patients' electronic medical record.... :facepalm:! I come to find out from our IT dept that Windows 10 is still not bug free and compatible with most of our software interface. Time to bust out my old Commodore 64.... :banghead:
Yup and thus the reason I couldn't access anything from home. Our institution uses Cisco VPN and I believe Citrix. Our IT department has their hands full. Actually they probably don't until Microsoft releases patches and fixes for these issues. I guess our problem is now common and widespread as the IT dept just issued a notice not to install or upgrade to Windows 10 if you will be accessing their network for work related tasks at home.andyw715 said:Don't upgrade if you use Cisco's VPN client.

Fortunately, this is not a concern. I'm not in any 'work from home' situation where I need to log into someone else's network.andyw715 said:Don't upgrade if you use Cisco's VPN client. No worky
The above are probably the most useful comments. I've been through many of the Windows upgrades since it first came out (all but 2000 and 8, I think). Within a few footsteps, I have 5 computers that still run - 3 on XP, one on 3.1, and one old dinosaur DOS-only computer. (I wish Windows hadn't stopped supporting XP - it's still pretty good!) I believe I'll be able to handle all the set-ups necessary to keep my computer 'protected' while running the new system.teetertotter said:My Dell Inspiron 15, touch screen, i3, came with Win 8.1, Dec. 14'. ... Win 10 is pretty much similar to 8.1. NO big deal.
The end of August, my now wife's 7 year old Asus with Win 7 Home, was upgraded to WIN 10.
Both laptops have NO issues and use the Auto Updates. ..
WINDOWS 10 is a piece of cake! It is a nice operating system like 8.1 for what I use it for....E-mail, surfing, photo, and video, word, excel, etc....... Nothing was disturbed during downloading of Win 10, ...
