Too soon to say but All of the above Good bad and Ugly

Most of all really offers little in the word "upgrade" would imply compared to 7's out of the box perfection
But I suppose that's a individual taste thing,
If you enjoy a mobile interface 10 was your idea not mine

Virtual Desktops are handy, but I think MS could have implemented them better (W10TP b10041).
Sounds like an interesting integrated feature.
Here are a couple of screenshots.

I am dual booting one computer with 7 and 10.

10 behaves like 7 to me so I may use it on just this computer.

Things may change but that's what I THINK I will do.

Thanks for those. I can see where that could come in handy in lots of situations. I use a 14" laptop though and have enough trouble reading fonts when I have only one screen filling the LCD. Neat though. I suppose the best features will be improved upon and carried forward... hopefully into an OS with a prettier GUI. I know it sounds silly but I could not live with those sys tray icons. Call me shallow, I can take it.

I'll be upgrading my Win 8 partition to Win 10, but I'm leaving the Win 7 system I have alone. I like it too much to go messing with it.

I'll dual boot for a while and see how I like 10 before making a final commitment.

Guys, W10 doesn't have to interfere with your current W7 setup. I don't condone an upgrade from 7 at all. But, I wager you can install W10 freshly from an ISO and use it alongside W7 without changing your system.

It's called native booting. You basically install W10 into a .vhd file and add it to your boot menu (or let the install do it automatically). That's all there is to it, just an extra file on your hard drive containing the entire operating system and what else. No need for a 2nd hard drive or to repartition it...

It's just like downloading a song. Since when did having an extra .mp3 file [except it's a .vhd file] on the hard drive affect your current setup?

Virtual Desktops are more useful to people running laptops, than Quadrant Snapping (due to monitor size).
You can open a folder (full screen) on its own desktop and simply repeat that as often as necessary.
Thus you can have multiple program and document windows open at the same time.

I don't mind the Sys Tray icons.
I have a 23" monitor though.

I can't stand the "Diamond White" default theme.
The faint grey writing and invisible separators don't help.

Installing Windows 10 on an LGA 775 platform is a bad idea . I keep my good ol' computer with Windows 7 until the support dies.

I have just ditched my iMac and have a new Windows 7 setup, which I really like. The current and last (November 2013) OSs on the Mac have become ever more like portable devices in appearance and in operation, which for a desktop user like me is not good. Windows seems to be going the same way. Lets hope that the fashion cycle will come round.
