    Running Windows 10 on 5 year old laptop with 8GB RAM and although I don't have much other Software on it apart from Office 2016 preview it is predictably laggy, like the look of it and it will Def be an improvement would have gone back to 7 weeks ago if I used my laptop more than I do

    never said you had to remove your CD drive, as you forgot to add the detail of having a laptop :eek:
    at this point I'd suggest an SSHD, but honestly, I don't really know how they would work, sorry :oops:

    I've tried out the insider program and it just didn't seem as user friendly. I'm a bit sceptical to say the least

    For now I'll be keeping my personal computers on Windows 7, although the preview builds have been interesting to try. For some of the few hundred in work, I'll stick it on a couple of shared computers and see what users say.

    I'll upgrade just because really. I have a Chromebook that I use most of the time. So my desktop can handle a little experiment.

    It is said that 'free' comes with a catch. Forbes has an article on that. I am planning to stay with win 7 ultimate until the smoke screen is gone.

    Yes and that's the problem I too have. If you accept the free upgrade you'll forever be on the perpetual beta tester ring. That I dont want, thus will sit it out on Win7 and only when building a new PC or buying a laptop will buy or use win10.

    I'm not sure if you can even use the key for a clean install or new PC build (I don't want to install win7 then get to win10). So there are a few concerns.

    I like my desktop OS to be a desktop OS with no other content being pushed to me (which I'm sure I can limit on win10). I like to know if they have a backdoor for Z-americans to walk in without my permission under the guise of "terrorism/spying/other" BS.
