Anyone else install this today?? I did the upgrade and then a fresh install and all went smoothly. At first I wasn't too sure on it but after a couple of hours playing around it has grown on me and for a new OS its very stable and fast.

And the new DX 12 seems to have worked wonders for the AMD graphic drivers and pCars ��

Still haven't had the notification to install yet. Haven't heard any horror stories yet. The only thing is Nvidia users make sure you update to the latest driver before doing the upgrade as an old version of geforce experience is installing an old driver rather than the new one during upgrade.

Sounds like there is an fps boost to everyone in Pcars from what is being reported over at the official forums.

Been waiting to see if there were any major issues before upgrading the PC. Looks like it's a job for the weekend judging by these replies.

Stuck it on my Surface Pro, aside from the fact it won't sleep properly it works well. Ironic that it won't work properly on Microsofts own hardware?!?

Going to hold off on the gaming rig, that's now enforced as my graphics card broke today so it's out of commission for a while.

Did the update yesterday, and it appears to be working smoothly enough - just takes a bit of getting used to. Main gripe so far is that I can't find "Computer" in the Start menu, just the folder in the taskbar. Usually if I wanted two windows, I'd use that "Computer" to open the second window - unless I've missed something now I have to go through the "Open new window" part of the drop down menu to do this.

BUT... I had Windows 7 32-bit and have decided to update to the 64-bit version of Windows 10. Massive downside here is that I can only do that with a clean install, and that's ongoing at the moment. Will just have to wait and see how that goes, but if anyone wants to jump the queue, wants to play ultra-safe by only using the microsoft site, and doesn't mind losing all the data on their PC, you can get it from:

Windows 10

Obviously, as I said, this is a WIP for me so no feedback yet on how well it works.

I've been running it for over a year on the Preview Program.
I think it's marvellous, and even Windows 8.1 feels outdated now when I go back.

Any advice needed, feel free to shout.

This is the odd thing, I thought I was but when I actually dug a bit further it turned out I've been on 64-bit all along. Still doesn't explain why the PC doesn't seem to want to use more than about 3.5GB of RAM though.

My main gripe around Windows 10 is Edge. No extension support until at least October and the bloody thing keeps freezing. Apart from that I'm really liking it ��

I dont even know what that means john lol

I registered last week for it and got the notification this morning.

Bought a 10 mouse and keyboard set and just tried to go to the settings and it said something has gone wrong and has to restart itself.

I can see today being a real ball ache
