I reserved a copy today...Please, can someone tell me if it has a mail program? I'm planning to install WIN10 on my WIN7Pro, if I do, and 7pro does not have a mail program. I was so unhappy with this purchase that I went out and bought WIN7Ultimate!! I am so "set in my ways", and I guess I am looking for another WinXP.

I have downloaded it.The first couple of days I was not too happy. Seemed as if things were hanging up and I often I had to reboot. After updating my virus program "Kaspersky" everything is running smoothly. I unpinned a lot of stuff that I know I never use, like music, X-box and the like. I am still trying to figure out some of the new stuff, but overall I like it.I have to say that I do a lot of my work from the desktop and file Explorer and that never changes too much.
Overall I had the feeling that every time I started the computer windows was still working to get things in order, that being the reason for the hang ups. Everything running OK now.

I've put it on my desktop but not on my laptop where I am still using Windows 7 where my embroidery files are. I like it better than 8 that was on my desktop before and I really like Cortana.

We downloaded it and so far were not too impressed. Not planning to download it for now on the one I use for embroidery till they get the bugs out or we get better at figuring it out. Too much technology . For our part, Leave things be or make it simple for seniors!

My husband did, I can't since it is an office computer and we have to follow the guidelines from headoffice. He is very pleased with it. Happy that the start menu is back. So far all our programs work fine with it

I'm glad you asked this question. I have also wondered if people like it. I don't want to jump in until I know how others are doing with it.

Sorry that you have had some issues preventing you from being online for a while. I too have my own little wagon to pull behind ;) But, glad that you came back if only to ask about Windows 10. Unfortunately, I haven't downloaded it on any of my computers. My husband has on his and seems to like it pretty well.

There is a very recent question in Embroidery on the same topic - see link - you may find some answers there.
