    Hello,

    I finally upgraded three machines, yesterday, without issue with my neighbours machines to follow. All in all it went very well with no issues.

    -Surface Pro 3 i3
    -HP Z600 workstation (Hex core etc)
    -Custom self built i7 gaming rig

    I would put ten reasons why I like it but I'll leave that to others. Sure, of course, the modern UI has, in a sense, shrunk down to a small version of itself but after a quick change it's all perfectly fine.

    Loving it. I have zero reasons to return to Windows 8.1. This thread won't get as much attention as the other 'HATE' thread as that's the internet for you. Shame

    1) Hey Cortana
    Man, I wish I could use that feature. Every time I try, my 2 year old and 5 year old come running up to the computer and trying to talk to her at the same time. It becomes a jumbled mess of what she hears. LOL

    I'm thinking of only have Cortana enabled in the front room... 1) To see if it can fit into my life and, 2) to see if funny search results.

    Fingers crossed. Now to find a suitable microphone.

    Love the new mouse gestures for touchpad and multi desktop. 3 fingers swipe up, down, left, and right or 3 fingers tap to get Cortona.

    Love, love, LOVE the new mouse feature: "Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them".

    It means you can scroll any window WITHOUT having to click on it first. What a relief - too many times clicking on a window triggers some unwanted action, unless you always aim for the title bar. Now you don't have to aim, just hover over any scrollable portion of any window and scroll away.

    I can't imagine why Windows didn't have this from the beginning. Once you've used it, you'll agree. Up until now I've had to use a little utility call Katmouse. The built-in function in W10 works better.

    Didn't know about this. The 3 finger swipe up, down, left, and right are working great for me. 3 finger tap to get Cortana... getting nothing. How's that done exactly? Is there a setting?

    Yeah, I was using AlwaysMouseWheel. It was causing my scroll wheel not to work on any Universal Apps until I uninstalled it. I had no idea I was getting the auto-scrolling feature that the AlwaysMouseWheel gave me. Very nice.

    Probably just a Surface thing. I am using Surface Pro 3.

    Na, works with all touchpads that have multi-touch.

    Unfortunately, mine is rather "touchy" and doesn't always register. If I tap with 3 fingers several times, I'll eventually get it. Not worth it. My touchpad has too long a delay configured to make it active. If I 3 finger tap, wait about 1/2 second, then 3 finger tap again, I get it. I'd rather just "Windows Logo Key + C" to invoke Cortana listening for voice, or "Windows Logo Key + S" to invoke Cortana ready to receive typing. Easier for me.

    One reason I like W10 is because the install went smoothly on 2 devices after forcing the update.

    I'm not much for change.
    Win10 I must say hasn't been a difficult transition for me at all.

    Good to know. My two old laptops don't have multi-touch

    I am predominately a touch user on a ideapad P500 touch.

    1. The UI is seemless now. No more being thrown in and out of desktop or metro depending on what kind of program you open.
    2. Love the action center over the charms. No more accidental activation.
    3. I like the vertical scrolling of the apps and tiles, like windows phone.
    4. The Edge browser is very fast.
    5. I love the settings app!
    6. My accent color is displayed much more.
    7. The transitions are simpler and much more eligant.
    8. The multitasking from the left side is better. I can cancel out apps faster.
    9. Having the start button always on and in a consistant place is helpful.
    10. It's a free upgrade!

    So far:

    -Update went well
    -Product Key and activation built in even when doing a reformat>clean install afterwards
    -Most important drivers installed without a hitch
    -Looks sleek
    -Very responsive
    -Nice customization options
    -Getting a Pro version from Win7 Ultimate is nice
    -Start Menu is great
    -UI excels in both form and function
    -It's free

    1. 10% more stylus input into the OS (Wish it was more, but Joe did spill the beans that we would most likely be seeing more stylus input features added to windows 10 in the near future. I am waiting for redstone)
    2. Interactive live tiles (not here yet, but announced at build 2015 this year it is still coming. Waiting for redstone)
    3.Toggles pane in the action center (feels like charmsbar 2.0 for me coming from windows 8.1 Pro)
    4. Multiple apps snappable in both landscape AND PORTRAIT orientation (yes finally; Does still need some refinements though)
    5. Drag and drops of files between desktop and windows app is possible (not much, but getting there; needs some more refining on the touch UI department and that more apps implement this. Would be a great and natural interaction between apps when using as a tablet)
    6. I like it that they still support hotcorner/swipe gesture to open hidden title and app bars in ported apps with swipe down from top edge. At least this way windows 10 is still usable with the core apps from the "first" windows store.
    7. multiple desktops. Still figuring out why I would want to use is on my surface pro. But for multitasking I see its practical virtues. Adds a newer layer of flexibility of mulitasking (does needs some more refinement though)
    8. Pinable individual settings pages as a live tile. Gorgeously pratically and flexible!
    9. windows search has an option for a tailored and expansive search. I like that duality of search results. (but yes, could also still use some more tweaking and refining)
    10. tablet mode! It makes the transition from windows 8 a tidbit less of jarring experience. (but also this experience could use a lot of tweaking and refining).

    1. Faster and more stable than w8.1 (after the latest update).
    2. Notification (get smarter with the recent update.
    3. Action center.
    4. Snap windows.
    5. Multiple desktop.
    6. Start menu.
    7. Nice UI.
    8. Metro apps in windowed mode.
    9. Close button really terminate the apps (in w8.1 the app still running in background and takes lots of RAM).
    10. Auto drivers with clean install (though you may want to manually install some drivers).

    I couldn't be happier with this Win10 and Edge. Goodbye Chrome and Firefox. I can't wait to turn on the desktop. I agree with all the previous good points listed above. Congratulations Microsoft, what a surprise. I am afraid the large update that is coming will mess things up!

    + Sleek and chromeless design
    + Finally can use small icons for task bar
    + Multiple-desktop to avoid clutter
    + Metro Apps are windowed
    + Action Center

    + Finally Universal and Synonymous across devices
    + Start Menu (Back to the roots!)
    + Cortana Initiatives which is going very well
    + More accessible and welcoming to everyone
    + Easy for both Win7 and 8.x users to switch (specially 7, from what my dad experienced)
