Windows Ten.

I'll stick with win 7 ultimate.
Best upgrade I've just done was to change to a solid state drive, now 15 sec bootup and very fast shut down so why change - best £100 I've spent in a long time.
As far as Win 10 is concerned I will wait until all the bugs are ironed out(be very cold in hell by then)

At my age Peter, I'll keep my money and have my brekky while it boots up, and go to bed while it's shutting down.:2fun::2fun:
 
Love Windows 10 got it on one of the laptops and use it to run the old LDS databases 1881 Census, British Isles Vital Records, Mormon Immigration etc., etc. all sitting on an external hard drive.
Handy when I am up in Scotland and have to rely on BTs slow slow broadband service
Cheers

Hi Guy,
Did you have to do anything special to get the LDS 1881 to run on win 10.

I run it on a virtual XP on my win7 PC, couldn't get it to run under native win 7

Yes I run it in compatibility mode by selecting Windows Vista (Service Pack 2).
No problems on my laptop which is a 32bit machine, others have run it on 64bit computers but not all have been successful with this.
