That explorer crash when you shut down or restart windows 10 build 10130 is a known problem. It doesn't matter if it is an upgrade or a clean install. I did read you can restart or shutdown by other methods to avoid that problem.

I remember the "Super Menu" AKA Start Contextual Menu works for that, just right click, shutdown, choose whatever you want, no errors found... I didn't use it too much besides reaching CP, Disk Mannagement and such...

I've been using it since October and it's a better OS than Win7 and clearly a worthy successor.

However there are still some beta bugs and instability so I hope its ready by July 31. Why did my Yahoo Mail just lose the ability to download each mail in the Mail app so I need to download the rest of each email when I'm reading it? Why won't the Mail app open sometimes? Why is the list of networks fluttering around so I need to WhackAMole to pin down the one I want? Why did Sound not work in the latest build until I spent an hour repairing it?

I feel like I'm on a flight that still won't settle down for landing. But in spite of the remaining beta buggyness they've really made a great effort to update and bridge Windows into the future without being annoyingly App-centric. The openness with which they've done this makes me proud of the company.

One thing to remember is that the builds that are going out even to the fast ring are still "old" within a few days. I agree I am hoping it's ready by the time there's a build available at the end of next month, but I'd wager there will still be bugs that will come up. The vast majority of it will work fine, just like the releases of 7, 8, and 8.1. As long as bugfixes get out quickly, it should be fine.

Considering the Insider program will continue running after RTM I think bugs will be fixed pretty quickly with Insiders having a direct channel to MS. Updates will probably be pretty regular for the first few months or so.

So after reading the last few posts I take it that 10 is ok?

I ask because my brother in the UK quickly went back to 7 after he tried it.

It is much more than OK to me. I never stepped back once I have got it.

But that does not necessarily mean that it will be equally OK to you.

Try it, see how it goes. If it does not suit to you, get back to windows 7 again.
