My first impression of Win 8 (thank god for virtual machines!) had me uninstalling it in about 60 minutes of "typical" use for me. My new Lenovo laptop (scratch and dent from their website - but seems ok) came with Win8.1 - Classic shell and booting to desktop have made it much more palatable to me (and yes I work support in a corporate environment). I'm going to let someone else play with Win10 first before I commit. I better not have to buy a new printer (HP DJ6940) .
