upgrading to windows 10

I'm an old die hard Window 7 person.... when I got the alert that I can upgrade to windows 10 for free I (finally) broke down & said "go for it".

Now I tried windows 8, actually bought a new laptop with it installed and after about a month...I sent it back.

Right now Microsoft is downloading it, very, very, very slowly I might add as I have used up my 7G's data for the month and I am in the extra slow mode which is what you get for free when you use up your prepaid. I can't wait to see how long it takes to download.

I'll probably wait till next month to do the actual install, because it'll happen much quicker and truthfully I'm in no hurry to get online with it.

Is anyone else out there going through the same. I'll be curious to hear others views on this new upgrade.

No temptation here.
Of everyone I know I have the least computer knowledge, yet the fewest computer problems or issues by far.
My custom PC and WIndows 7 are working phenomenally so no temptation at all!

especially since 10 can be monitored and info saved by microsoft, read fine print and see what you agreed to

Yep, also note that your cell phone provider does the same, and most apps grab and sell data gathered .

Ugh

I still use xp on on my 2 laptops.
I really like windows 7 though.... It's probably my Favorite. I do have Win10 though on my custom built PC, I like it beter than win8. It's 3 Dell optiplex 390 that I put together.

Still running XP but it does have serious security issues. My operating system is infected with really annoying adware that no one can remove. I will have to to upgrade at some point but not before the "buy in, de-bug" cycle has cleared many hurdles. Really need a new puter...mine is about 10 years old.

I build my own PC's and had an xp computer for 7 years virus free. went to windows 8 and hated the **** out of it, downgraded to windows 7 on my new custom pc and love it, just a bit more updated but will never replace good ol' XP.
