    Everybody already knows that Windows 10 would be released in the summer of 2015, there has not been an indication of the exact release date though. Well, AMD CEO Lisa Su has spoiled Microsoft's surp...

    Maybe the time has come to retire trusty win7-64bit :) although i might just wait 6 months extra for the newborn 'kinks' to be somewhat removed/fixed :)

    I will upgrade from Win 7 all together with a new Pascal GPU, which is somewhere in 2016.

    ME 2? Vista 2?

    Im good with Win 7 still.

    no no no... W8 is far worse (i would even have said a step back from W7 in the 1st release, a lot better (to equivalent W7) in W8.1 :) )

    on other hand it was a dead end fork (as vista btw).

    if W10 stay as it is in latest build, it will be really great, the choise of interface is back, tactile/mediacenter/desktop/old skool... well, it's what W8 should have been.

    Sweet! I am looking forward for Windows 10.
    I would like to get the START MENU back :)
    the rest can be similar to 8.1, no problem.

    Windows 8.1 != Windows 8.
    Windows 8.1 is fine. It surprises me people are still questioning if it's overall better than 7.

    You do know the new Start Menu isn't like the one in previous Windows versions since they removed all the code. It's more of a hybrid between the start screen and start menu.

    Until somebody offers a program to use the 'old' style menu again, like they did with 8(.1) too. :)

    I did try to use the metro screen too, but after having trouble setting it up like I wanted without having to use different workarounds, I went for the classic shell with 8.1, and never looked back. Can't say I've missed the new metro stuff since then.

    This is the one to make a jump to from Win7...I think. Will wait for SP1 though.

    SP1 should be a reason enough to wait till 2016 for the OS upgrade :)

    Is it really that bad? I know a few people have been very vocal about how unfinished the builds are right now. Can it be worse than what Windows 8.1 was on release?

    Thanks, I just Googled it...
    Well, this Start Menu looks to me like a kind of hybrid also... I hope that after the program is installed, and lets say it will add 5 more icons to the start menu - it will be in one group; That is I hope that the "tree" structure will be there, like in the old Windows.
    At the moment in Win8.1 after I install any program, I get few icons in the start menu screen: program, uninstall, website links, read me notes, etc, blabla, blabla;
    so after few programs there is a complete mess there. I have to navigate to the location of those shortcuts an delete them manually... Another thing is if I want to switch off my PC I have to press the Start Logo with right mouse button to see the switch off button :)
    In my opinion, apart from less convenient Start Menu and harder to reach Switch Off button, Win 8.1 is great: faster and more stable than Win 7.

    Good! hopefully there be more adopters this time. Could never understand a community that thinks they know so much about tech and all that to call themselves the master race, yet they slag off an entirerly perfect and superior performing OS.

    Basically the new start menu is just a condensed version of the metro screen from 8.1
