I'm still apparently waiting for it to be "Ready to download", when if I go to their website, it's able to be downloaded there. Good Job Microsoft, Another absolute fail on your part.

Much better than Win8. It's designed beautifully, and is a lot less clunky than both Win8 and Windows 7. I'm thouroughly enjoying it. Even Microsoft Edge is a pretty nifty browser. A much needed improvement over IE, and is more efficient than Chrome.

For PC gamers, DX12 will offer a HUGE improvement to AMD cards right off the bat, and NVidia will benefit as time goes on. The OS itself is much more optimized and adds a few extra frames to games, especially CPU intensive games.

Win10 also brings back the start menu, of course, and offers quicker results for searches regarding the file-systems of the computer.

Touch support is still heavily supported, but it isn't the star of the OS, like it was in Win8. Win10 basically takes all of the great accessibility options from both 8 and 7 and integrates them quite well into the system.

Cortana is neat, but not on the level of Siri and Google Now. Search is integrated into the Start menu. Just start typing, and the OS will automatically start pulling up results based on your query.

There are some "security" issues reported by users, but are nothing more than an overreaction. Keylogging is used to improve OS-wide autocorrect feature, similar to iOS and Android. Autocorrect affects nearly all programs, instead of App-Store products, like in Windows 8.

There was also some concern regarding access to wireless networks via skype. Basically, people who are on your special "Buddies list" (Not friends list) can optionally access your network while their device is at your place. Basically, you have to give them permission to do this in the first place. After that, your computer shares the appropriate information (But never the actual password) with your "buddy's" computer. Once they leave the signal, they have to request permission again. This prevents security holes that go along with giving out passwords to strangers or friends. Again, this is nothing to be overly concerned about at this point in time.

I actually downgraded not long after I upgraded. If I had of been on Windows 8, I'd have stay on 10.

Windows 7 still continues to be the finest OS, at least until Microsoft fix a bunch of random issues.
