I want to see what the big deal is with Windows 10

Not much, but it can be a trick to install.  I have 3 PCs, all 3 failed the update multiple times.  I had to do this:

1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.

2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".

Then go here:  Windows 10

That's the link to the Upgrade Tool.

Works now, on 2 of 3.

The last PC is constantly searching for updates.  Still figuring that one out.

So far the install process is still going smoothly on my PC. It's 83% complete as of now.

I feel like a kid waiting for a present.

It's better than 8.1 Metro, but not as good as Win7.  Just my 2 cents.  The search bar at the bottom next to the plain start button is rather large.  It has this minimalist unflashy feel with the icons.  Basically looks like an old windows phone.

Please. No more. You're spoiling it for me.

BUT, the windows and toolbars match the colors of the programs...just like Lollipop!

It's done. It's ok. Nothing to right home about. I hope it all works out for the folks who are into the windows ecosystem.

And some jimmy-shake-jiggle-pushing, I finally tricked #3 into updating, AND found an 4th older Laptop to upgrade, but had to format and start from scratch with it to get it updated.

I'm waiting on all you "bleeding edge" techie gurus to give Win10 a thorough shakedown before I take the plunge! I'm too skeered!
