I took the plunge and installed Windows 10 as well, mostly because I'm the techy guy in my little group and the others will install it anyway so I figured I'd better get out ahead of it.

If you're worried about the spying like I was, this 'Destroy Windows 10 Spying' [^]utility works pretty good. It's mostly firewall rules and re-routing IP addresses in the HOSTS file...it gets updated frequently...wouldn't surprise me if Google or Apple was financing it Smile | :)

Windows 10 is working fine with all my programs and hardware. I never much cared about the Start menu (I use shortcuts on my desktop for everything) but the new one with the tiles looks pretty neat. I haven't used Cortana and have no plans to...I gave up on the idea of talking to computers back in the 90's with my SoundBlaster card's voice commands...I find talking to computers very wearing.
