    Default Windows 10

    Is anyone planning on making the plunge? Also apparently its free for 8.1 users. Anyone have any opinions on it?

    I have access to the technical preview if someone wants to check it out, and I'm planning to upgrade.

    Looks pretty good. Will probably get it since its free and for directx 12. The Xbox One streaming ability sounds kind of stupid though. Since you normally stream from a more powerful device to a less powerful one (like with the NVidia shield), not the other way around. Hololens will also probably fail for the same reason the kinetic did. A controller or keyboard/mouse is a lot more efficient at inputting information than gestures in the air. I'm just hoping all this stuff they are adding can be manually turned off, so they are not constantly running in the background.

    Since it's available for both 7 and 8 for free, I will probably take the plunge. And following MS' tick-tock awesome-crappy release schedule this one should be at least somewhat decent.

    I'm running 8.1, It sucks in the fact that microsft doesn't play well with others and 3rd party driver support isn't there. Logitech does not support 8.1, only 8 because of microsoft, so their software is broken on 8.1... I honestly didn't even see much of a difference between the 2, but that may be because i run classic shell.

    I meant version to version XP vs Vista. Technically, 8 and 8.1 are the same version. ;-)

    I'll probably get it. And while I don't really agree to them doing this, 10 will be the only way to use DX 12 so why not get a free performance boost. And If it's anything like 8.1 you're a few downloaded programs away from making it almost identical to windows 7.

    I am already building a new direct x12, 4k capable machine. Win 10 will be put to good use on it.

    Running windows 95 here, just stick my floppies in. Oh wait, no I'm not on words and upwards.

    Seriously though, windows 10 is amazazing. All the things we wanted and more, though cortana? Could they have picked a less halo fan boy version of Siri ?
