It's obvious that I choose good old Bill Gates windows to do my business, I've been through the many versions of XP then crap vista to awesome windows 7 ultimate to uh-oh windows 8 to much better windows 8.1. That being said I'm going to update this laptop with windows 8.1 to windows 10. Going to open this up to anyone who already has upgraded to one who wants to know how to upgrade. Will share my feedback pros/cons

I've just upgraded to windows 10. The design is much better than any previous iteration of windows 8. That aside, I'm not noticing a drastic improvement in performance, but that's probably more to do with me just using the laptop for browsing the web. Not too sure about game performance or anything. Edge is proving to be a decent browser.

After a loop of checking for updates to ultimately going to the M$ store for the 8.1 upgrade... I finally got the icon on the taskbar just waiting for that notification to upgrade to 10.

@Blue - I hear there's better performance yet no privacy... will have to share my thoughts once I'm up to date.

If I upgrade, do I need to reinstall everything/lose my files? Only thing I'm worried about.

@M\'s trade mark - there is a way to upgrade without losing your personal data, I always back that sort of stuff no matter how large the data dump. Found a good read about how Windows 10 is built to spy ... http://bgr.com/2015/07/31/windows-10-upgrade-spying-how-to-opt-out/

You gotta make it so that the uncle has nothing to say to the big brother, such as using a local account and following the steps in that link provided earlier...

so after upgrading 8 to 8.1 then registering to upgrade to 10 then waiting a few days for 10 to download and then about an hour for the 10 upgrade to install... my desktop looks like this

with the good old start menu and task bar from xp/7 with enhancements from 8, cortana and the quick search similar to android's google bar, this windows 10 isn't half bad at all

unlike 8, you wont find the charm bar with a swipe to the right instead you will find the action center.

the option to switch to tablet mode makes it simple and easy enough to use touch screen laptops.

Windows 10? Microsoft, so far so good, it's been awhile since I gave you guys props... just give us the option for privacy

Downloaded it to a USB from a media creation application off of the windows site since I still haven't received actual confirmation that mine is ready (says it's still reserved, haven't gotten any word besides that), but I still fear that I might lose my files this way since I did the same with Windows 7 recently on my laptop. I'll likely upgrade tonight.

You said it just took an hour? I might do it sooner actually if that's true so I can set stuff up and not have to wait till the morning.

I heard the many games run a lot smoother on Windows 10 than 8/8.1
