Default Upgrading to Windows 10 worth it?

I keep receiving those annoying pop-ups from Microsoft prompting me to "reserve my free upgrade".

I think it will be a hassle as I don't know how much of my corresponding softwares will be compatible to it. Obviously, Microsoft couldn't care less. What if I'm only left stranded with the dumb OS and will need to pay/wait for software upgrades compatible to the new OS?

Also no option for cancellation. Can only close the window till it pops up again

Any techxpert can comment?

Yeah, that icon in the bar below that keeps coming back is annoying!
I love Windows Seven, no need to upgrade it.

Default Re: Upgrading to Windows 10 worth it?

From what I have seen, I have quite liked it.

But no point in shifting so early. Iirc, the upgrading to Windows 10 is free for the first year after it's release. So, till July next year. I'd wait for a few months to see what the first users say before shifting.

Really?

I thought they are insisting we MUST register for the upgrade by this July 29 itself as it will not be forever free.

Oh, awesome then. Will check opinions after six months.

EDIT: Though I'm pretty sure the first "users" will still be MS hacks.

Default Re: Upgrading to Windows 10 worth it?

As someone else correctly pointed out, you get the annoying popup because "Windows Update" automatically updates your machine. I suggest you turn it off and update manually every two weeks or so.

I take it you're using Windows 8, if not, you should have KB2952664 also installed, an annoying popup to upgrade to Windows 8.

In the end you're the only one knowing whether it's time to upgrade or not. If you do all you want to do with your current OS, then there's no need to upgrade. Windows 7 will receive updates until 2020, Windows 8 will receive updates until 2023.

I am on Windows 8.1. When I brought my system, it had 8, and then there was this upgrade to 8.1. I sincerely didn't care much for the previous upgrade, as all my needs are met as it is. If at all, I am more concerned regarding the compatibility issues with the Win 10 OS, with old software. Thanks.

Can you link me to the source of this info?

I've registered for the free upgrade but I'm not planning on upgrading yet, will likely wait until SP1 is released or the one year timeline is about to end.

I sure will, as can anyone else too, who is brave enough to commit, starting tomorrow. I probably won't till someone else has borne the consequences of the shift

I've been running the RTM without any major issues, either soft or hardware. MY Logitech MX Mouse needs the special software that allows you to fiddle around with the 9 parts of the mouse to set it to do things - that needs upgrading, but the basic mouse driver is fine... haven't had any probs with 3 different office suites, DTP, a lot of different multimedia apps. Games - can't really say cos for the last few years I've tended to play casual games, and they don't tend to be over demanding of an OS

However, I did just install the new version of Linux Mint, because I was NOT impressed by their new plan to force automatic upgrades down your throat - although I see they're already beginning to walk back on that. Apparently it's likely that you'll have an option in the Pro version (that you'll have to ferret out) to delay to the point of bypassing driver and feature updates, but will still have to "accept" the security updates. Similar to the options Enterprise will have. Home edition however, is force feed time.

And came across this gif in "celebration" of the launch tomorrow
