    Two weeks isn't a very long time for the Microsoft execs to break everything the engineers and insiders achieved. ;) J/K

    I'm gonna be waiting to see which games (if any) win10 consigned to the history books before taking the free up-grade.

    That and for the early adopters to finish the inevitable bug hunt.

    You're going to have a long wait then, the early adopters are going to be Windows 10 home edition users, well actually that will be the insiders that choose to continue testing new builds after release.

    Bug hunting in Windows 10 now gets done by the fast ring, slow ring, home edition (enforced updates), then finally rolled out to the pro edition users/corporate customers.

    I'm a bit shocked the RTM build is not finished. Something special is going to have to happen to make me upgrade before Christmas which is when I'll look at moving my main rig over.

    I've been using the insider builds for a while now (currently on 10162) and I'm really impressed. ALL my software works, it looks beautiful....no complaints from me whatsoever.

    ^^ this
    Really loving it and been very surprised with the recent update of Spartan to Edge and it's actually pretty decent as a browser goes.
    Very much looking forward of the end of the month now

    I'm on 10166 and I've been using it since the consumer preview released. I've only had a few bugs (AMD driver needed to be installed and a shutdown error) and have really enjoyed it. I see no reason for others not to upgrade.

    I really enjoyed using it and everything worked, but I had two serious update issues with different builds where I needed to format using Linux to fix, formating with Windows didn't work. I really like Windows 10, but I'm a bit apprehensive about having to waste another day sorting an update issue out.
