Sticking to 8.1

First I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong place, it just seemed to make the most sense posting here. I honestly can't see myself upgrading to Windows 10 from 8.1 In everything from style, stability, boot time, gaming performance, and even security (which previous of versions of Windows had always failed to impress) Windows 8.1 has been solid for me from day one. Keep in mind I update my system daily without fail; I see this as a necessity if optimal security and performance is desired. Bringing back the start button feels like such a huge step backwards. Coming from someone who switched over from Ubuntu, I always hated the unclean and "kidified" clunky feel of the start menu in Windows 7 & XP. My machine isn't even touch screen, even so touchpad gestures suffice for me. The way 8.1 blends its app interface with the desktop and the options it gives you is just something I've grown to love immensely. I see no reason at all to fix what isn't broken, I'm probably a part of a very small minority who feels this way. For the time being all Windows 10 will be to me is a pretty white window icon next to my action center ;)

I'm sticking with whatever OS my current machines are running, some Win 7 and some Win 8.1. No upgrading for me since Win 10 doesn't provide any advantage over the other OSes. I don't want to upgrade simply because MS is giving Win 10 free.

I'll be upgrading my 4 home PC's to 10. I have some issues on my laptop in 10, and if those aren't resolved it will likely go back to 8.1. The rest will probably stay on 10.

Windows 10= Windows 8.1 + Hybrid Start Menu of Windows 7

I did not like the technical preview so I reverted back to 8.1 in 24 hours.

I don't like the hybrid start menu all that much either, but for the amount of time I actually use it, I can probably live with it. I can easily go back to 8.1 anyway, if I'm so inclined.

To be fair I have not personally tried Windows 10 first hand. I might go out and purchase another machine preloaded with Windows 10 once they become available to me locally. However I cringe at the thought of upgrading an entire operating system through an update process. In Linux at least for me this usually results to a broken OS that takes hours of work to even get it to boot properly. I don't have experience upgrading a Windows OS in such a manner so I can only hope Microsoft's implementation is far superior. So what actually happens if you did reserve your update and just decide not to go through with it? Are you permanently stuck with the get Windows 10 icon next to your action center?

So far I've gone from Windows 7 to 10074 > 10122 > 10130 > 10158 > 10159 > 10162 and now 10166. A few minor glitches that were easy to fix.

Thanks to the OP for starting this thread !

- Is there a way to accept Win10 upgrade, but not install ? Perhaps create an ISO to be installed at a later date ? Hate to miss the free upgrade.

- For the people above who installed the tech preview. Is it possible to run a dual boot with Win 8.1 and Win 10 ?

No, it has to be installed on a running Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1 computer. Supposedly there will be a way to save the files for doing a clean re-install later on. The free upgrade will be available for 1 year from July 29.

For the people above who installed the tech preview. Is it possible to run a dual boot with Win 8.1 and Win 10
There are folks who have done it but I had hardware available, older Desktop and older Notebook, and did clean installs of only Win10TP.

You're welcome. A note: I will be installing Win10 on more than one computer [Desktop and Notebook] after it's released but will be reserving my current Win7 and Win8.1 Desktop and Notebooks until much later, have separate hardware to do the upgrade on.

At the moment, I don't have an urge to upgrade to Windows 10. Things are working fine for me with 8.1, so I don't have any real urgency to upgrade or "fix it". Security updates will continue for some years, too, so there's not real need on that part right now. Until a few months ago, I'd been using the stable release of Debian Linux for the last eight years as my primary OS, so am used to not using the latest and greatest (Debian stable is known for not using the latest, being more for stability than up-to-date).

However, once Windows 10 has been out for six to nine months, I'll review my stance. By then, things will be a lot clearer about Windows 10, which might encourage me to move on. But, for now, Windows 8.1 is fine and I don't feel the need to move from it right now. Suffice it to say, KB3035583 has been hidden... for now.

I am hoping there will be a way to save file do a clean install too, ways were shown with windows 8 to 8.1 upgrade before.

Thanks, may check it out.

8.1 works fine for me. I have learned to live without the start menu. Don't really need Cortana or other changes.

Always looking for better performance. But main issue is IE11. IE11 on my laptop, i3, 4GB ram, is as fast or faster than other browsers. But it does not always perfectly display the pages, especially the news sites. I manually disable Flash which keeps those vids on some sites from automatically running, but some images are not properly displayed. Not many, but enough to want it corrected.

That said, there is a reason why IE11 will be an option with Win10. The Edge browser is also likely to have display problems with some sites.

The good ole days. I started with MS-DOS 5 and Windows 3.1 in 1992 on a 386-40MHz. I used Windows NT4 in a computer shop until Windows 2000 came out. Windows 95, 98 and 98SE were good learning tools, never owned Windows ME but did use it on occasion but only when necessary. Best thing Microsoft did was to combine into 1 OS with just a few versions.

I don't miss "the good old days" of DOS 2.1 on a PC running a 4.77Mhz 8088 with a whopping 256K of RAM in 1984. No hdd, just 2 floppy disk drives.

I remember trying Windows 1.0 on a 286 machine and thinking how useless it was as there were no Windows apps, only DOS apps.
