i am currently having my pc checked over by a support company, down the tubes, in an regular checkover. We were talking about 10. He said dont put it in yet. He is getting reports of pc's crashing and refusal to run drivers and other mishaps. He said to leave it for about 3 months to see if MS can fix. Another example of running before they can walk by the sound of it.

The company is MS accredited agents and have fixed problems for me before.

Failed upgrades, Failed Drivers, Failed updates, other issues = all true
10 still not where it needs to be (in my opinion)
Although using the ISO method, prevents constant 4-6GB re-downloads for fail updates

KYHI - so what new? MS always doing the same thing, not properly tested.

Using the media creation tool I am now in process of installation on my laptop so I can test it out. About 30 mins in and only 4% complete ....

Oh please! Don't start jumping on the anti windows 10 band wagon just yet, all of you! You should know well that you upgraded a new type of windows on your existing copy of 8.1 or 7 and it won't work as well as you're expecting obviously there will be issues of drivers and crashes so here my advise:
Now that anyone of you has upgraded his windows to 10 and has made sure from settings>accounts that your windows is activated, try to get a hold of your key, note it down and then download windows 10 ISO using widows 10 tool from Microsoft website and so a clean install of windows 10! You won't regret it or have problems with a fresh formatted drive and clean windows 10 installed over it. If you want more info I can give a link for clean install instructions after update over here for anyone who needs. But remember you need to first do a update and activate you win 10 first of all and then think of a clean install.

Once you complete the UPGRADE there is no need to reinstall anything..

Just "RESET" and select save nothing..
