    Just had a nightmare. Upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 via free upgrade. Almost lost everything, couldn't access most apps, or even settings. Also couldn't revert back to Win 7 like they say you can. MS support is the worst I have ever encounted, in the end had to pay a local tech to recover the laptop via original recovery discs. He told me he has had loads to do in the last two weeks for the very same reason. Upgrade at your peril !!!!

    Just to show the other side of the story upgraded about 2-3 weeks ago and couldnt be happier so far system is a bit faster than 7 and also looks fresher and more modern. No problems whatsoever

    Been using windows 8 for nearly 2 years now, everyone hates it, but I like it. I don't want to upgrade to windows 10 as I don't want the task bar back haha. I know I'm a rare specimen ;) But what I really want to know is 'What the hell happened to windows 9?' :confused:

    I upgraded but never use the new gizmos. I just use the old way of getting to folders n documents etc which are on my taskbar.
