Windows 10 debuts today! Who's going to do it?

Free upgrade for most flavors of Windows 8 or 7. Anyone planning on doing the upgrade? I know I've had that little flag in my system tray for awhile now.

I'm going to opt for the free upgrade, hopefully it's a well tuned version without a lot of bugs.

I bought a new tower in May last year and have had nothing but, problems ever since(Windows 8). Yes, I opted in and am very happy with it so far.

I actually upgraded the same day it was released so that I could test how our sites respond.

Although I was okay with Windows 8.1 (once I got used to it) I have been a real fan of Windows 10.

I've been using Windows 10 since it's release also, I have no complaints, it seems to be working very well for me. I also didn't have any problems with Win 8.0 or 8.1

I've been using it since it's release also. Except for a initial installation-registration snafu which made me end up buying a copy just to get it installed, it is faster and quicker. I just hate the change-for-change's-sake crap. All my "programs" are now "apps". I don't have a tablet, so why does it offer me the chance to go into "tablet mode"? Edge? Why didn't they just improve Internet Explorer? All edge does is do away with all the menus and move everything on the left over to the right, and other silliness. BTW, I stuck with IE.

I don't care for the App style either but it looks like it is the way things are going so at some point I will end up with it
