    Went well and so far everything still seems to work as far as the printer is concerned. I have not done a long print, but 15-20 minute ones are fine.

    Been using it the past three months. It is leaps an bounds better than Windows 8/8.1.

    I would have to agree at this point. I don't see any real downsides.

    I did two upgrades and one clean install, none of them have issues.

    This is one of the smoothest upgrade experiences Microsoft has ever created.

    If only Marlin were so easy.

    I wish they'd hurry up and drop the upgrade on my PC. I keep getting "We'll let you know when the upgrade is ready for your specific PC with a notification". No option to manually download it on the PC thru the taskbar thing.

    There is a man with an eye patch that has had it available for a while as well. Just saying. :p

    Well today we did the toughest machine and it was still reasonable.
    -Upgrade from 8.1
    -throw away hard disks and swap for SSD drives
    -reinstall machine from scratch

    Worked as advertised. Other than some futzing around with USB drives it worked flawlessly.
    One machine was Pro just to use it as a remote desktop host. All in all, nothing to bitch about.

    One left -- the media center and for obvious reasons it will be staying 'as is' for now. Once I scope out what is replacing that functionality we will do it too.
