    That's the best thing you can do. I know I will be putting it on my Windows 7 laptop(already have build 10074 there) but I'm not sure yet about my Windows 8.1 desktop, as I said I love 8.1. I have created an image already with Macrium of not only my system drive, but also of my 2nd internal drive, where I use one partition for Libraries and one partition for File History & Macrium images. Yes I even backed-up some of my old images so I can do a complete restore.

    What really has me being a little hesitant to upgrade my desktop is, Samsung hasn't made Magician(for their SSD's) 10 compatible, and using RAPID mode gives a boost that makes the Samsung Pro 256GB faster than a even PCIe SSD(much faster) even though it uses SATA 6 GB/s (SATA 3) port.

    For me I have a touch Laptop and find this works great with 8.1 using mouse/keyboard/touch

    Win 10 will definitely be installed on this, I can then try using it purely with touch to see if I want 10 on my tablet (tested early 10 builds on it, later ones only in a VM)

    certainly worth a try on tablets, some seem to love it, others hate it

    One has to set it up how one likes it, then us it a couple weeks when "Muscle Memory" sets in and you don't have to look for things, then can one decide if the OS is any good or not.
