    Will there be Nvidia and AMD drivers made specifically for Windows 10? Are there any changes to the driver model?

    I'm seeing zero reason to upgrade from 8.1. Come on Microsoft, if you expect me to pay for your OS show me something good.

    Although if rumors are true, it could be free

    Nvidia did this to avoid confusion with the long standing mobile 800 series. This is just microsolf selling us bull***t again.

    We can test it tomorrow onwards and it will be updated every now and then too .. can't wait for it to arrive so we can leave 8's stink behind along with the obnoxious flaming it used to cause.

    Despite the fact that is the most popular OS?

    Have you read my post blog Struggle is Real V3? I just went from Athlon64 W8.1 64 to Core2Q XP 32.

    Well I dont like that new start menu one bit, still hope its optional though, will stick with metro win8 look.

    Even this new win8 metro look is kinda meh, them extra folders on the left side are kinda pointless :p,. I already have explorer (taskbar) and my documents on desktop, dont really need extra in that metro start on top of it all.

    We can just copy/paste all the 8.x threads and edit 8.x to 10, sure most of them will still make sense

    I guess built-in calculator will be useless.
    I wonder what name they come up with for next Forza.
