    Has anyone made the plunge? If so what do you make of it? If not then why not?

    I'm going to give it a couple of months to see what people say about it and wait for a few patches to come out but I'm curious for anyones first impressions?

    I've pre ordered mine, but I wasn't selected for today's install.

    I'm looking forward to it though. I'm excited to see how it integrates with windows mobile, as I'm due an upgrade.

    I've signed up for it too but no sign of it last night. Perhaps foolishly, I signed up on both my laptop and my desktop; I might only install one of them at first and see how it goes, although I'm not too concerned since all of my data is on a separate NAS box anyway.

    There was no Windows 9.

    i've been running the developer previews for 5 months or so (dual boot with linux).
    haven't had any problems except when upgrading from one release to the next. that can be tedious and often failed.
    i only use it for lightroom though so i suppose i'm not exactly stressing it too hard.
    haven't bothered to check if i can now download the 'official' release.
    can't really be arsed.
    really don't think it's anything to get excited about.

    The new Windows Update system puts me off very strongly. I will wait at least a few months to see how it plays out.

    So I shouldn't be entirely happy with Windows 7 then?!
    Will Windows 10 work on my Marshalls?

    The end of security updates might make you unhappy.

    Everyone is spying on you, I've just learned to accept it.

    I upgraded today, I love the apps so far, it feels just like a really fast really nice tablet.

    I'm really frustrated that the Cortana part of it doesn't work in the UK yet. That for me was one of the biggest draws for upgrading.

    I have learned how to fight it, having already accepted that "perfect security" is impossible (which means I am overqualified to be a world leader).

    If the security services can perform a better job because I sacrifice I tiny insignificant part of my privacy, I'm happy with it.

    Whenever people start getting angsty about security and the government spying on you, I just get an image if people in tin foil hats refusing to use a landline because 'theyre listening'

    I will not argue your decision about your own privacy, but you should learn better if that is what you imagine. The like of what various governments have done, are doing, and are moving to do has not been done during any other era in the whole of human history: it was not technically possible. In fact, to do something similar with citizens' physical property and an NSA agent would violate the Third and Fourth Amendments to the US Constitution (as an example). For a British example, consider this:
    It is my contention that such technology is also why people seem to accept such moves broadly; being tracked has become normalized in the name of advertising, despite the fact that advertising has worked for centuries in the absence of such technology and techniques.

    I'm on windows 8 but they won't let me upgrade yet. The icon says it's rolling out in waves and they will tell me when it's ready. If diablo and amplitube ran on linux...

    Here are the WineHQ listings for Diablo, Diablo II, and Diablo III. Oh look, I found Amplitube. ;)

    I'll give it a go on my Asus tablet/notebook combo thingy, but I'm not letting Windows 10 anywhere near my gaming PC. A lot of the new "features" just don't seem useful for a desktop PC.

    Is anyone having any issues with audio interfaces/DAWs/plug ins?
