    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I have been using it since March, only problem I have had is with USB3 support.
    There are over 1 million Windows Insiders testing 10 including myself. Far more than any other operating system before.

    There are so many people out there with an axe to grind against Windows that you will be lucky to find an objective overview.
    Microsoft has screwed so many people in the past that nobody trusts them.

    If you are running win 7 or newer a windows 10 icon will appear in the tray the next time you run windows update.

    Mine is taking care of a few things. Ooops! It just came on!

    Reports as needed.

    EDIT: I cannot create the required email account. It won't let me use a current non-Microsoft account.

    I trust Rock but the OP says wait til the end - about this time next year. I will always wait for at least three updates to a new OS or application before jumping on board but that's just me.

    We learned the hard way when we bought the Ford C-Max the first year it was out. The lying sales rep said it had been out in Europe for several years, no problems. I later found out that it might have existed in Europe, but not in the form debuted in the US. It was nothing but trouble. The GPS rarely worked, had small trim pieces falling off the interior almost immediately and couldn't tow with it. We've never gotten rid of a car in less than 2 years. That one was traded on a VW Tiguan, which has given us no trouble.

    That C-Max was a rolling computer that had way too many glitches. Their SW was awful, had many recalls, some that took almost a day. If there was a problem with their doing the software upgrade, the dealer had to start all over again. (We only have one car, so it was really a pain).

    My oldest did the same with the Chevy Malibu. Piece of crap. This time she only looked at cars with three or more years of US dales and got a Ford Fusion. Near 100k on it and has only had brakes and shocks until a motor mount let go last month. Still that did not stop it but really did make it hard to steer as it was swinging loose and changing the center of gravity with every twist of the wheel.
