Edge wouldn't run some things for me, so I went back to FF. Early days for it though, so no biggie.

Also, Win10 is pretty much perfect. I've yet to come across anything irritating, or annoying, or broken. Well, apart from Edge.

You know what's a pain in the ass?

Using Vista at work in some parts, 7 in other parts, and 10 at home.

Loving 10 so far though. I even love the lock screen.

The one that keeps my family from turning on my computer and finding my 80GB of Sasha Grey hidden in my "Toyota Avensis T25 Owners Manual" folder.

Really?

I know mocking Vista is trendy and all, but I seriously can't think of anything that runs on Vista but not Windows 7.

Wasn't having a dig at vista, I mean having to use multiple versions of windows depending on where I am.

The ones at work have different versions of office as well, pain in the bum.

On the contrary, you should be having a dig at Vista.

Your IT guys must suck. I genuinely can't understand why they wouldn't upgrade all the Vista stuff to Win 7.

I get some machines having to stay on XP. I really do. But Vista? I can't think of a single thing it can do that 7 cannot.

We have some machines on Vista at work. They'll stay that way until the hardware fails. They came with Vista, they do their job, they're isolated from the internet. Changing them is time and expense for no return.

Yeah, it's probably to do with when they bought the towers, I guess they probably came with Vista at the time and the newer ones have 7.

I upgraded to Win10 at the weekend ...
I reverted to Win7 at the weekend ...

My laptop comes with a Sandybridge i7 CPU/mobo with HD3000 graphics. (Also has a GT540M GPU with Optimus, but no options to turn off onboard graphics). Consequently when I run Win10 my laptop screen is not detected - at all ... I can only use an external monitor. Windows updates don't find any updated Intel HD3000 drivers (there's supposed to be a Beta driver that addresses this issue), and I can't run with only one screen, so I've gone back to 7. If this issue is ever resolved I'll maybe look to upgrade again.

So.

Offered upgrade of Surface pro 2 went without issue along with a firmware update. No problems apart from battery life has gone down.

Upgraded main system (forced update). Update failed with too small system partition (the hidden 100mb). Fixed that and upgraded ok. Unable to send email from Outlook 2013. Did SFC and that was fixed. I do wonder how ordinary people would have fixed either of those issues. Found new version of Kaspersky only available to Win 10. No other software issues so far.

Happy so far.
