I for one am not savvy enough to answer this plus I don't have
much experience with Vista. My general feeling is that if a computer
is stable and does what you want leave it alone. This is a new machine
so I didn't have much hesitation in loading the newest and latest. My
other machine is still running XP and can't be updated. I think I will
eventually put Linux on it.

Carlos, Richard, Don, you gentlemen appear to very PC/OS savvy. I am running Vista on an 8 year CompaQ laptop, INTEL Celeron CPU. Any advantage in migrating to Win 10?

Yes Richard, I'm having a similar experience too. The only "problem" was that it was not so simple and direct to establish Mozilla Firefox as my preferred web browser, because Windows 10 "forgot" my selection after I closed it and open it again, but I found the way to do it from Windows in the Toolbar. Anyway, I detected Mozilla became too slow to upload images from the PC to Facebook, however using the new MS Edge explorer, things were very quick perhaps Mozilla needs to be reloaded despite it works fine to upload images to Flickr. I feel like my PC, in general, is quicker with Windows 10 than with the 7 PS1 version.

I am also running Windows 10 64 bit version in a small Acer
laptop. So far it works fine but I have mostly new programs this
machine except for Photoshop 7. I did the same as you Carlos; I
reserved an upgrade and downloaded it almost as soon as it was
available. Also installed fairly quickly and fairly painlessly.

"...Windows 10 is apparently late on general release so I
will just wait."
I'm using Windows 10 from July, 29th, it's a 7
and 8.1 versions mix and looks good. I did not wait for the
notification about the availability, I looked for it from the
little application Windows Upgrade installed on my 7 version
and it was available. It took about 90 minutes to install the
new version; the installer kept all my files and software,
even the desk configuration and they are working fine,
including VueScan and the original Epson software for the v700.
