    I have installed Windows 10 on two of my desktops, and I cannot recall a single problem. I have been running it since May using several of the pre releases, and even with them had no problems. I am only using a simple setup, using computers rather than tablets or smart phones.

    If you wonder why I have multiple computers it is a bit like a pet owner unable to get rid of an old dog. When I get a new one I am unable to get rid of an old one until it stops working. The other day I purchased one of the best monitors I have ever used (BENQ) for £1 at a local car boot sale. It did not come with a power or data lead, but after cleaning the screen it was like new, with no failed pixels. Even better it was in 4:3 format which is much nicer than widescreen for a lot of uses.

    My experience is that Win 10 is faster than Win 7 and just as reliable. On saying that, I don't use any metro apps - I don't need to.

    i have two computers running windows 10. none of them had any stability or compatibility issues. the "most unstable release" is a very exagerated argument

    So you can install Windows 10 ltsb enterprise (it come without Windows apps).

    Enterprise LTSB is defently the best option in my experience ;)

    runs flawless for me on 9 or so machines, had no issues at all even though they were all upgrade installs, this in the past was a huge no-no.

    I've read your statement and thought immediately, that someone wrote something about me :)

    In addition:

    A part of my business activity is, to give support for my customers, have to make compability tests, create the hardware & software infrastructure and / or do some proof of concept's for these people. In fact of this, I would like to get so much information as soon as possible I can get some info about new (mostly Microsoft :rolleyes: ) OS or App's to find out the Pros and Cons.

    I'm a 'first day' insider and make the same experiences like you on different virtual and real machines (both with and on Server & Workstations / Notebooks): Microsoft has made a really good job with Windows 10 and I hope, that they will do this job for the future over and over again.

    For example: I'm using a HP Compaq NC6715S for business working AND test out the (Enterprise SKU) Insider builds. The first build I've installed on this notebook, was 10047 and every new build (fast insider ring) was installed without any problems (!) - only the step from 10525 to 10532 was interrupted three times by Windows 10 itself and unknown reasons (probably the new and now missing key [after build 10xxx] for the Enterprise SKU) but without to get a blue / black screen and / or an unstable system; the 4th step was successful again, the last jump to build 10547 was successful again without any kind of problems - by the way: Any jump to a new Build without (but the recommended way) of a new / fresh install!!!

    In my opinion, the Build 10240 was just and nothing else like a release candidate, but a really stable one - and in fact, Windows 10 is usable for the most kind of people without any probs.
    With every kind of a new released patch (what MS did and will do really often), Windows 10 becomes more stability - this is nothing else as 'Windows as a service' (by using an old definition: 'Banana software')

    I think (and made my experience), that most of the problems based on any installed third party software and especially, all and every kind of 'System Optimizing Tools' which come with useless "system drivers", changed system configurations or anything else like this

    tweak the hell out of it, remove packages, take ownership of your own personal data, do not register for a live account, install a third party start menu, :blahblah1:..... and it works like a desk top. No problems here either after the initial pain of set up so you are able to install the gpu drivers that are best for your OC and not have M$ decide it is best to overwrite them. I see the frustration for sure.

    this is the best MS release i've seen windows upgrading to windows 95 from 3.11. I'm running it on 2 tablets, 2 laptops, and 3 desktops. No issues at all. 2 systems even have nvidia cards and i havent seen the graphics issues ppl bitch and moan about. I game daily in windows 10 with no issues.. honestly idk what ppl are whining about.

    I'm even able to get MTP, ADB and fastboot working fine on my OnePlus one so i can only imagine that most people with issues just dont know what they're doing (no offense MrTweakFreak)

    So far W10 Pro is not that great for me.
    drag and drop problems in some applications.
    Although it was working fine, lately resuming from hibernation fails.
    Some appliactions like google input tools installed fine but after a while it stopped working.
    There are other issues too.
    I still cannot understand in what ways as a desktop OS it's better than 8.1.
    I'm gonna try LTSB soon, hope it has less problems...

    Well, stability-wise, it could be better. I've seen some issues with drivers that I didn't have on the same machine running 7 or 8, and I can't blame the hardware vendor because it's essentially the same driver (because no Windows 10 specific drivers will be made) and because there haven't been any fundamental changes, I'd expect the old driver to just work (like it did in the past).

    Besides, comparing the DOS-based to the NT-based line of Windows operating systems doesn't make sense in the first place. They look the same, but under the hood they are fundamentally different. I cannot remember of an actual and serious unstable NT release, and I'm using NT since 4.0 (I was too young for anything coming before, and who could afford 16 MB of RAM back then to make NT run smoothly anyways? :D). Even Vista, given all its faults, was running pretty stable on RTM, the big flaw in it were performance issues.
