    I have installed it on 4 or 5 computers so far. I really don't like it that much. I especially don't like them almost forcing you to open a Microsoft account. With that they have taken away a few of your options. My favorite computer; the one I use most had ten for a short while. Things started going wrong and I reverted back to 7 and have not missed ten at all. I don't know how important it is now, but Steve Gibson (I think) has a program out that will stop ten from bugging you about upgrading. I have it on all my 7 machines. It takes one more thing out of your system tray that just uses up resources.

    IT work has been my living for over 20 years and right from the beginning this one stunk to me.

    Looks like rumors are that they'll be forcing all 10 installs to a subscription model.

    Of course, its "optional" provided you don't need their help keeping it up to date. - Nevermind that there is no lack of complaints about the existing patch methods....

    I used and loved XP until Microsoft quit supporting it and have since been with Seven. Tried Ten several times and could not bring myself to like it. I'm still using Seven and don't plan on making any upgrades any time soon.

    When microstuff stops supporting 7, all my machines will be loaded with Linux, and use the open office suite of programs, no problem, goodbye MS.

    Yeah Linux used to be hard to use but I see it's getting easier all the time, might be the way to go.
