Windows 10 – Experiment

After reading all about Windows 10, both the good things as well as the bad things, I decided to try it on one of my computers. Even though I was not buying into the rumors that Microsoft was going to copy the entire content of my hard drive(s) to their servers, I was concerned that the software I usually use would not work.
I copied the personal files that existed on the chosen laptop to another location. I then allowed Windows to upgrade from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10 Home. Even though I don’t remember exactly, it didn’t take a long time to complete the upgrade. Windows then insisted on going to the web to check for updates. After a couple of reboots, it finally came up in Windows 10 Home. It even still uses the same password.
The next step took a couple of weeks, due to other time commitments, but I finally tested all of the software I normally use. Everything worked. Admittedly, I don’t use a lot of software that taxes the system, but I was still concerned.
