I installed Win 10 a couple of days ago on a  Dell Inspiron 3520 with 4 Gig of ram and a mechanical hard drive.  There doesn't appear to be a boot time or speed difference.  I spent some time tuning it up based on reading.  Internet connection was good, speedtest.net  showed almost 29 Mbps on a 35 Mbps service, my wired desktop with Win 7 did about 39- I expect the wired connection to be faster.  I really don't use it much besides playing with Arduino, programming Chinese handhelds at club meetings and surfing the internet in the living room.  I haven't yet decided to see if I can get SWMBO to upgrade her 8.1 laptop yet.  She will probably resist, having grown used to it.

Some folks with wav files on CF and SD media are experiencing problems with Windows 10 corrupting files making them unusable and/or destroying the metadata.

OK, I installed Win 10 on one of my machines...

PROBLEMS:

The audio makes a loud single "pop" sound when going from audio mute to audio on. Driver problem there from Microsoft.

Also, Microsoft calls my applications, "apps". There are NO apps no this machine. They are APPLICATIONS or better still PROGRAMS. This is not a mobile bloody phone, its an IBM-compatible personal computer. This is another case of Microsoft-double-speak. Microsoft introduced us to folders rather than directories, and their faulty Arial font. Now they are telling us to talk like Big Brother TV show mobile phone addicts.

If you can't beat them, join them. maybe? OK, its happening...

IMHO, OGM, TY MS. :wtf:

LOL... LMAO... ROFL!

GTG!

I have found what appears to be a legitimate source of information for removing the "entangled" built-in Windows 10 apps (including Groove Player, aka. "Zune")

https://thomas.vanhoutte.be/miniblog...ndows-10-apps/

I followed the directions for:
"Remove Groove Music and Film & TV from Windows 10" and
"Remove Solitaire Collection from Windows 10"
and they appeared to complete without anything that looked like an error message.

When I did...
"Remove Xbox from Windows 10"
it showed a big mess of error messages in red, however the Vanhoutte instructions say those "error messages are normal"

Note that this appears to remove the alleged offender (Groove Player aka. Zune).
HOWEVER, I have not seen the problem and have NOT been able to test whether it may prevent the reported problem.

The Vanhoutte website also contains other useful things like "Find your Windows 10 product key" which I plan to investigate.

Thanks for the warning. Another reason to stay away.

So far my installation of Windows 10 performed smoothly.

Booting time is fantastic even just with a small SSD used as cache drive with Intel SRT (everyone should use this if you are not running SSD-only, have a spare SATA 6Gb/s port and your hardware support this, and the 64GB cache drive capacity cap means you can use those cheap Kingston 60GB SSD for this.)

For smooth video playback you will need some video card. If you have a recent Intel processor the integrated Intel HD Graphics, if you have it, should be able to hold up. My machine used a Xeon E3-1231v3 (BTW, when you are buying your next desktop computer, keep an eye on those Xeon E3-1230-Series, they can have really good cost-performance ratio if you use dedicated graphics) that does not have integrated graphics, but the GTX 650 Ti graphics card held up relatively well.

One downside so far, maybe a weird bug, start button can stop responding (just the button, not the entire system) after a few days of continuous use.

There would appear to be problems with some Asus laptops touch pads after installing WIN10
