So, ye, I was struggling with the upgrade till yesterday and finally decided to go with it. But, must say it wasn't an easy decision to make...

After spending hours and hours of reading different expert reviews and visiting many related forums I was quite close to decide on not upgrading at all, ever! (or at least for as long as it's possible).

The main issue I have is that Windows has became a data-mining OS and its intrusion in my privacy went beyond of what I expected it to be... (keystrokes recording, tracking all my activity everywhere, making my PC a hub for downloads to other people in the net etc etc). I will not go deep into the problem (you can Google tons of in-depth info), but instead I will just post a link to one of the you-tube videos I've found that will show you how to disable at least some of the privacy issues.

Some of you maybe don't care about it, but myself I'm kind of shocked how deep they went into my privacy. So for those who feel the same, here's a link:

To spicy it all up, check other videos of this guy (for example the one advertised in the right top corner of this one) or other videos people have made.

I've upgraded, and I like W10 as an OS more than W7 & W8. But... the super invasive default settings really bugged me. I've turned off what I can, but can't say I really trust MS now (I did before, who knows why!)

Oh yeah, I like it too, the OS part of it. The 'spying' part is really annoying though and some other stuff like auto-updates, which can cause your PC to loop infinitely if one of updates fails or breaks something.
Had few hardware and still have few minor software issues compatibility as well, but nothing major.

Gotta say I LOVE win 10. Regarding the big brother part I'm already numbed. Tried stay away from Google way back but for me with limited knowledge it was more struggle then benefit.
Now I'm I mindless drone in the collective.
And... Shas...

As Hal said, Google already has your number, and if you have anything to hide, well, then don't do it, but also, don't post on forums like this! If you aren't doing anything bad, then you have nothing to worry about.

Your data is out there, for anyone who cares to dig about for already. Personally, win 10 is great, it's what win 8 should have been, much like win 7 was what vista should have been.

Well i do agree the data collect is all fucked up. And it gets a but funny when USA listens to Merkels phone. I mean, who dont the germans listen on? And the cables passing Sweden from russia to europe is sooo collected in sweden and forwarded to US and A.
So no, we as people might not be that affected but i think its a hugh problem when it comes to company espionage, and maybe in general, in what kind of world do we wanna live in.
In sweden its forbidded to open and read another persons post, but when it comes to mail and internet, everyones asses are fair game.
