well as I a sure most of you are aware Windows 10 was released on the 29th.

who has decided to upgrade? I have done my main PC and it went quite smoothly!

upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and then done a clean install with no issues.

what does everyone think of the OS?

Scared that it will fuck up my existing programs...like Steam and CSGO in particular!

Plus I have a lot of old (and weird) hardware in my PC....Asus soundcard for example. What driver support is there?

I did a upgrade from W7 to W10 and then done a clean install.

CSGO works fine for me with a old gpu which has W10 drivers.

I have upgraded 2 x PC's 2 x laptops and a netbook and all had no issues after.

what model is your sound card?

I upgraded my laptop and it decided that hte highest res it can support is 1024x768 lol. Not gonna risk it with my pc just yet due to having problems with stretched resolutions in cs go etc.

Maybe later on this year. I'm on 3 year old hardware so want to avoid driver related performance issues for as long as possible!

its free for the life of the device so after the first year they will not charge you unless you do a mobo change and then W10 will be un activated as Microsoft class this as a new device lol.

if you do the mobo change in the first year you can put back on your original OS and then do the upgrade again to W10

Rich I might do the Mrs laptop, can you rollback easily to 7 if it fucks up her drivers?

yeah, you can roll back fine, make sure its within 30 days of the upgrade as it cleans the old files out it uses to roll back.

ive done my PC, a netbook, a laptop and a old PC.
