Re: Those of us who haven't "upgraded"
...that's right: I actually like 8.1...
I had no issues with 8.1 either. I suspect most people who complained about it either didn't try it, or simply wanted to hate it for hate's sake.
I forcibly upgraded my 8.1 laptop to 10 over the weekend. (I wanted to try it out before I start getting nagged constantly to upgrade my main machines.) I haven't played around too much yet, but from what I see so far, it actually looks pretty nice. Obviously I disabled all the sending stuff to Microsoft crap while installing, and there are a few applications I need to re-register because the OS signature changed (I realised that's a test scenario I need to try out for my software), but other than that, so far I'm happy.
