Never install a Windows product until SP1 comes out. Been like that since Windows 3.0
Yup. This is a great way of validating your copy of the operating system and not having to worry about the CD key. It's long overdue and I love that I'll be able to nuke my existing desktop one day and just reinstall a fresh copy of Win10 and not have to worry about activation.OK was going to hold off but got the notice on both comps
Picked my own comp for a first run - activation process has been seemless
Im digging the interface
really like it!
Awesome to not have to worry about CD key anymore! "Digital Entitlement" is created and can see I am activated - can skip product key step on a fresh Windows 10 install, once I boot into windows should just automatically activate in a few days - my hardware will match the entitlement.
maybe frequent HW component upgraders will have some headaches to worry about!
Which is why you shouldn't switch to a new OS. You have to wait for driver development to catch up. It's rarely ready to go when the OS is released.Win10 AMD drivers are hooped for e-350/6630, which is what my htpc is built on. Had to use a hacked .inf to get DXVA working and stable.
Overall there does seem to be a fair share of driver issues out there regardless of brand.
This has been the only one I've had.
I switched day 1 because I'm not super-bothered(was annoying at worst), and based on AMD's lack of response and their continual lack of support with each iteration, my setup may not be supported, period.Which is why you shouldn't switch to a new OS.

Steinberg has recommended against upgrading. I've held off. I'm always a late adaptor though because my machine is an audio machine and I can't risk shit not working.
lololol!my parents live up near mt st louis, and have limited bandwidth. They realized that 10 was put onto their computer without their consent.
This is not cool, considering people who really only use teh interwebz for email, small surfing, etc, will get a huge spike in their bandwidth, and not really know where the fuck it came from, until of course, my mom calls me, i grab a double rum and coke, and explain it to her.
She is not pleased, but at least i have a good 10 am rumglow on.
Ya I use MPC HC and madvr so I can enforce the right colorspaces and correct framerate - else the standard players will basically chew up my video and crappify itIt's a bumpy road. Upgraded at work and at home. Drivers aren't particularly matured for GFX, and MS has yet to release the much needed RSAT tools for work. (As well as KMS server updates for anything older than the 2012 R2 kms). SCCM Endpoint is not playing nice yet either. So in the Enterprise, it needs some time.
At home, HD video playback is less good. Netflix app is buggy as hell, too.
