Works fine for me on all my computers. What makes you think it is a glorified beta?

. Then these posts.
I've run Win10 for a number of months and can't say that it improves my life or productivity. What I really don't like is the lack of control over updates and the privacy issues.... meaning unless your careful you can finish up handing over a lot of your data to MS for them to make money from.
I've installed Windows 10 on all our laptops and PCs and can quite honestly say it works just fine. It keeps all the programs and data. Generally if programs works under 8.1 it'll work under 10. To be safe always back up at least your data before an upgrade as you should on a regular basis anyway. Not a massive difference from Windows 8/8.1 in usability, but seems slightly more stable and less buggy. However after the upgrade, 3 out of 7 experienced freezing or hanging which appears to be quite a common problem. As I couldn't be bothered to troubleshoot these issues, I backed up everything on each of these to our NAS and did clean installs on these machines, after which they ran perfectly.
Ask any IT professional and they will all tell you a clean install is always the best option. Ask anyone at Microsoft and they will tell you the same, but not in public. Microsoft have to promote upgrades as if they didn't then very few would buy new OS as the majority of users atre not technically competent to clean install Windows.
Just from today, and how long has it been out?
As for the last of those, "Generally if programs works under 8.1 it'll work under 10"
, great. And if some don't?
"after the upgrade, 3 out of 7 experienced freezing or hanging which appears to be quite a common problem"
. So probably be avoided by doing a clean install. Yeah, right! Email clients love that.
Today I even found on 8.1 that when I did a "Save as" with an emailed then amended PDF to it defaulted to directory C:\Bob\OneDrive\Documents .... and I didn't spot the OneDrive when changing it. That's happened a couple of times. Easy enough to sort out, but I do not want to use OneDrive in any way, shape or form!
Accidentally picked it up somehow recently and keep failing to remember to find out how to disable it permanently.
So do I want to spent time ploughing through the intrusive Win 10 spy systems disabling each one? Then checking after each uncontrollable update?
I'm technically competent to do a clean install of a different OS, but if I need to do it to move from 8.1 to 10 then the clean install can come on my next machine thank you
. I'm not saying people mustn't do it, but if they are running fine on 7 or 8.1, then stuff 10
The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
