    Yes, I did the same thing, upgrade my oldest laptop first and evaluate from there... got my upgrade yesterday, may take me a month or more to discover its potential..

    I couldn't wait. Got it on all three computers in my den.

    Already installed them in the family PC and my personal rig. Decided to still use Classic Shell despite the "return" of the start menu for the sake of convenience and customizability.

    So far, it feels like Linux. Heck, even the shortcut for switching virtual desktop is copied from Linux environment.

    Doesn't feel bloated. If anything, the flat color theme reminds me early versions of Windows <.<

    And... Cortana doesn't work... yet.

    If you guys are downloading manually, be sure to save it in flash drive in case you have multiple PC's.

    And the upgrade doesn't always work. My bike mate has his installation corrupted.

    I'm still hesitant to overclock this early as I might suffer from stability issues.

    It doesn't really matter whether I have a Start Menu or not because of my computer habits. I usually have shortcuts nearby to often-used apps, making the Start Menu unneccessary. But, it's good not to have to have a separate Metro desktop.

    If I download Win10 to a usb drive, can I use it to upgrade 2 laptops? One is running 7 and the other 8.1. Both are 64 bit versions.

    I have the product key for 7 but do not have it for the 8.1 Both are original Win that came with the laptops. The 8.1 did not come with a Win authenticity sticker.

    Using WIndows 10 now.

    So far so good.

    Glad to have the Start button back and the traditional power options. Just don't click the option to make this full page

    For 8.1, the product key is embedded in the bios.

    You can install Windows 10 while you're running both Windows 8 and 7 as long as they're activated.

    Also, having Cortana not working yet is a good thing ;)

    "Opting out of all these default settings requires navigating 13 different screens and a separate website, the bloggers have found."
