Anyone took the plunge yet upgrading to windows 10? I can tell you one thing it takes a few hours.

Still not finished my laptop, it's been roughly 3 hours thus far.

Laptop 3rd gen i3, 8gb DDR3, 1tb hdd.

28/07/15 Windows 10 final update reported in. Took ages about 3 hours to install it and it works fine. One thing that does not work is Cortana even though I have English installed on my PC.

Cortana doesn't speak, shame she's got a sexy voice in Halo.

Glad to hear positive reports about Windows 10 - so far. I'm happy with my Windows 7 though. I'll watch and see whether Windows 10 makes a very huge difference first before I make a change. I'm not as trusting of Microsoft as you guys are. :p
 
I haven't installed or updated yet. The word on the street from people I know that has taken the update. Its buggy and had to search for graphic drivers. So I will wait a bit before I try anything. So far, its looks just like the crappy 8.1 which is meant for cell phones. That is why its buggy and doesn't have alot of graphic drivers. Very disappointed. But then, I am not surprised. M$ is famous for rebranding old junk to make people think its new.

You don't have to wait for graphic drivers @"strokerace" , just use the windows update to get them.

Time to get rid off pirated software.
 
They said there is no graphic drivers for his machine available. I am waiting for someone to put a full ISO so I can download it. But it looks like I will never install it as its too cheap looking and looks too much like windows 8.1. Which I can't use as it doesn't allow me enough control over the computer.

I've been having trouble with the wifi connection dropping since the upgrade.

I had the same when I wanted to get drivers through the Nvidia Gforce Experience, I used Windows Update to get drivers for my graphic card.

Windows 10 is a bit crappy as Microsoft can spy on us, which means that if u have illegal software you could be in trouble.

@"DJB" I think that you should wait for some fixes and updates, they might do something about it.

I've since found out it was AVG firewall causing me issues.

I can just imagine Microsoft upgrade resulting in a few of those just to make sure they get the anti-virus and all other competing services. I'm already seeing some of that in Windows 7. My Kaspersky and Microsoft updates aren't always on the same side. And Mozilla Firefox in particular doesn't like some of Kaspersky's bells and whistles either.

How is Adobe Flash affected by the new upgrade? I'm having so many issues with Adobe Flashplayer and am hoping Windows 10 will have kissed Adobe Flash goodbye.

@Genesis, Adobe Flash works fine on every page and web browser, the most interesting thing about the new web browser Edge is that it does not use Java, which is very interesting, however Adobe Flash is switched off by default somehow, so you can switch it on whenever you want :)

Does that mean one doesn't need Adobe Flash any longer, YouTube plays on its own without needing Adobe Flash any longer?

I think so, YouTube uses HTML5 player I suppose which would make sense. I have just switched Flash Player off and YouTube still plays.

@Genesis just to confirm, every website with video sharing uses HTML5 players. You do not require anymore Flash Player to watch videos and listen to music.

OK that I understand, I've been using those as well. I thought with YouTube it's a different matter, but now understand Adobe has been duping me in using it.
