Ya I saw all the different ways to seed up the process but I really wanted to see how long it would take for Windows to notify me that my upgrade was ready. I wanted to know if I was truly waiting or if I had found a bug in the notification system. I decided to give it two weeks before doing the upgrade on my own. It finally happened yesterday, nearly a week after 10's release I get the notification that the upgrade is ready despite the fact that the install files were sitting on my HDD all this time. I am posting this from that machine now. So far so good. The only issue I have had thus far was the NVidia drivers. I installed the latest drivers that work for Win 10 a few days ago, and assumed they would carry over with the upgrade. However they did not work after the upgrade and neither did the GeForce Experiance app. So I had to download it again and do a clean install. All is working now. I have only had this system up and running with Win 10 for a couple hours now but I like it. I didn't try out any of the pre-release versions because I wanted to dive into this like a regular Joe with very little computer knowledge who was buying a new system with Win 10 on it. I think the average computer user over the age of 40 will be much better off with Win 10 over Win 8. It is a nice combination of the classic style and the new style introduced with Win 8. Outside of some privacy concerns I like it.
