    Are you planning to be an early adopter, or are you more likely to hold out for Service Pack 1?

    I've registered my Windows 7 desktop with the built in service that appeared, so I'll be upgrading whenever Microsoft let me. I'll keep the laptop on 8.1 for the time being until I'm satisfied there's no problems.

    I don't know when or *if* I will upgrade to Windows 10. What I'm certain about, though, is that I won't upgrade on Day One (i.e. 29 July), if indeed Microsoft manages to get the OS out of the door by then. There are far too many uncertainties with regard to Windows 10, and, having tested the majority of preview builds as an "Insider" I can't say that I'm too fond of what I'm seeing.

    Like Az, above, I'm currently trying to decide if, not when. At the moment, I'd say (finger-in-air) it's about 2:1 for not upgrading at all. I certainly don't expect to do it day 1, unless MS become WAY more forthcoming with answers to questions and reservations, and in about the next week or so at that.

    Probably a week or two after launch, depending on when Oculus updates their SDK to work with Win10.

    Day 1. As long as Steam and the Internet work fine, and the performace is good then I am happy.

    It's a price to pay for the next DX instalment.

    After reading forums and finding that most newer even some older games are working problem free OS related specifically. And I still might wait a while after that even.

    Never.
    Windows 7 still has the best eye candy. The Orb start menu, the Aero, the Flip3D, the non Metro UI, I could go on and on

    If you install the latest dev built it will upgrade to GA once it's out right? Only been holding off because some of the early releases were making my games run in DX9 mode :-)

    The last official announcement was that on the 29th, anyone with 10130 or later installed will be patched to RTM - if you 'upgraded' from Win 7 or 8.1 already, you'll be activated and finished. If you did a clean install, you'll be prompted for a valid license. Until you provide a valid license, you'll remain in fast ring beta mode.

    ASAP. My MOBO and GPU already have Win 10 drivers available, so I'm ready.

    People are if'ing and but'ing about getting Win 10 because of potential problems. But if you're just a normal home user, there's no reason why not to. The countless people using the technical preview (including myself) are evidence that even old versions of Win 10 are very stable, fast, and practical.
