    Simple question - Windows 8 vs. Windows 10... which is better, and why? What do you roll with?

    I'm still using Windows 8.1 because Windows 10 got rid of Windows Media Centre, which I paid for.

    And no issues? Nothing in Windows 10 you wish you had in 8.1? Any app issues?

    We have 3 active PC's here.
    My desktop is on Windows 10, the others are on 7 and 8.1 currently.

    W10 is OK...overall very stable as of right now.
    Haven't had a lot of time to find all of it's shortcomings.
    After installing it for free on my old 7 desktop it did a few strange things needing restarts and at least 2 rollbacks.

    Edge on 10 was extremely buggy at first.
    I don't use Edge much any more yet it is very stable now.

    The regular patches are working well and improving operations lately.

    Hi James,
    Are you using mobile or PC.
    I'm my own opinion, w10 is far much better.
    Use upgrade advisor app if mobile. For pc, you will need to have windows 8.1 pro, in order to upgrade free.

    @Jackson Ombati - PC... Dell XPS 13 on Windows 10. Pretty darn solid if you ask me.

    Rocking Windows 10 on everything. I really didn't enjoy Windows 8 for PC as it just felt clunky or weird to me. Could never really get behind it. Windows 10 drastically changed that for me and has been great. Really loving the intuitiveness.

    Cool beans. I actually used Win 8 VERY little, so I'm not one to talk about it, but my Windows 10 experience has been solid.

    I don't use Store apps on desktop PCs. Everything I use is x64 or"x86 software programmes.

    If we could turn back the clock Windows 8.1 I'd be.

    Have had way too many failures with Windows 10 in that it has managed to mess up one, or more than one aspect on each PC I own. Updates have been very hit-n-miss for me with us now finding ourselves sitting on edge just waiting for one to complete... Actually, I've stopped updating many of mine awhile ago because we are sick and tired of dealing with the aftermath.

    Going back to the Windows 95 days can't say I recall one being so problematic as Windows 10 has been. Probably attributed to the "constant" updated MS installs on us, and one reason I'd prefer they tone it down to only one or two a year. Would give them more time to perfect, if that's possible.

    It's really gotten to a point for me personally that I'm so tempted to dump Windows altogether if my present experiences continue. Didn't think I would have see a day when an OS took up so much of my time trying to diagnose in an attempt to resolve issues, gets downright frustrating at times. And no they are not all major issues yet the point is, the PC is no longer function as it was intended, or should be.
