    Windows 8.1 seems rather stable for me after Update 3 came out. Until then I experiences some obvious bugs that MS fixed later. Windows 10 feels like a rushed OS. Is it stable in its current Beta stage? Do people experience as many bugs with it as they did with original Windows 8? Will it actually be wise to upgrade upon its official release?

    Myself I tend to wait until the first major service pack is released before updating or even trying a new OS from Microsoft. Once a Windows OS goes RTM, every user and their mother beats the crap out of it, and Microsoft makes fixes.
    I would and will do the same here.

    Wait till the dust settles. :)

    It depends on what are you meaning with stability.

    The OS itself is obviously very stable, being just the latest member of the Vista family, that lacks any revolutionary kernel change.


    Some minor details still needs refinement (i consider minor the still unfinished start menu given I'm not going to use it).

    In short, using it as daily driver, is not a threat for your data. Just stay away from the included Sw, starting from Edge, the email/contacts apps, the start menu and so on.

    10074 works quite well on my desktops. However it is buggy as all hell on my Surface Pro 3. I'm hoping the next few builds will clear this up.

    Agree with Michaela Joy. I would also like to wait for a little longer when there are problems coming out and getting fixed.
    But I heard that the apps will be charged annually. Don't know if it is true.

    I would say it's totally unpredictable.
    Today, I had some sort of a system self-lockdown. I am not sure about the specifics but the short story is that Win10 10074 stopped working in a way which looked like the NTFS file permissions of some vital system and/or user files are seriously messed up (like your car locked it's doors while the key was inside). So I pulled the SSD drive out of the desktop PC, mounted the C:\ on my laptop (using a SATA-USB adapter) and tried to fix the file permissions. Now it runs (back in the desktop PC). I am not sure how stable it actually is though, that needs to be seen.
    And now the same thing seemed to happen on my laptop. Problem is, I can't replicate the same trick because it's an mSATA drive (and to make it worse, it's glued in - long story...) which I can't attach to my desktop PC that easily. I tried to boot into the recovery environment but the command line ownership/permission managing tools are a little different from the GUI, so I am not sure how to replicate the earlier "solution" (not even after reading the help content and some usage examples of the permission managing cmd tools).
    But... How could this even happen...?

    10074 is buggy to the point where File History is not even working. I refused to use it as my main OS.

    Still buggy it does not even deserve to be called anything close to a beta in terms of stability.

    thing is far away from gold aka RTM at this moment. I think they got a lot to do until final version to be issued this summer. If it stays so unfinished like it currently is, I will stick to 8.1 until they found their way to fix the messo_O

    Quite stable with no driver or program issue to speak of.

    There are of course areas that need refinement but nothing that keep it from being up to daily use.

    I think you should show more respect to 10, after all, it is still a baby. Comparing it to grown up 7 and teenage 8.1 isn't all THAT fair...:biggrin:
