I have been getting on ok with it though there has been a few step backs one being making a shortcut to a program has been made harder.

Seems like the elderly struggle with Windows 10 more.They probably don't like change.

After getting used to one system,they then worry/struggle with the next.

I'm not being ageist ,I just see it everyday in my computer troubleshooting job.:$

Hopefully they stick to Windows 10 now like they said and not make any new OS. The start menu is cool but I miss all programs like on Windows 7, there are step backs which is wrong.

It took me a while to get used to using Windows 10 but I have to say, I'm actually quite impressed with it. One thing I've noticed is that people who had it preinstalled when buying a new computer seemed to be satisfied with it whereas people who upgraded to Windows 10 don't seem to be so fond of it. The only thing I really didn't like was that all the sync and update settings were all already switched on by default, which wasn't very convenient for me personally because I have no choice but to use mobile internet therefore I have data charges if I go over the limit. I therefore had to go through all the settings straight away to customize it.

In my opinion, it's way better than 7, the previous os that I was using. My computer is now way more faster and stable. I just don't give ti 5 starts, because it already gave me 2 or 3 blue screens, but besides that there's nothing bad to point out.

Honestly saying after windows 7, Microsoft tried to make something new. But as far as I know windows 8 didn't do well. Specially because of that start menu. So I think they have made mixture of windows 7 and windows 8. For me it is just fine. Working smoothly without any problem.

I have not tried windows 10 yet, in fact I even did not use windows 8 for too long. They say windows 10 is  not very different from windows 8.1 Currently, Iam using Windows 7. Microsoft says it will stop providing service to windows 7 after 2020,until then I will be with windows 7.

I think they need to improve it better, overall in the area of compatibility with some programs, but after all it's a good system.

I upgraded to Windows 10 in December of 2015 because of a Windows 8 system failure and I'm glad I did, so far the OS has been really stable and it only crashed a couple of times. I expected a lot of compatibility issues but it seems like all the drivers and programs work wonderfully. The UI is improved and in my opinion better than the one on Windows 7/8.1.

I gave it 4 out of 5. Windows 10 is pretty decent but when I first was using it I had a couple issues with some games off of Steam. I did get them working though so that was nice. For the most part it is user friendly compared to Windows 8 which is positive! I heard a lot of negative comments about the Windows 8 layout and people not liking it at all. Other then some issues with games (works now) I have had no issues, windows 10 has worked well for me.
