The Latest and Greatest?

My Acer laptop has been upgraded to Windows 10, and so far I really like it. The design is clean and quick, and they've tried to make things easy for people. Unlike the Microsoft of old, they don't stomp all over your settings, and the user prompts are helpful, if a trifle condescending at times. Telling me to "Go and relax" when it did the 4th restart didn't do much for my blood pressure, but it's been pretty smooth so far.

After a couple of hours, some brief observations:
  • The interface looks clean and crisp. No fussy borders or shading, just plain boxes with text.
  • You may have to reconfigure your home networking, I can't connect to the main PC in our study at present.
  • The new web browser Edge is quick and smooth - but I'll stick with my old mate Chrome for now.
  • My favourite programs all run just fine.
