Windows 10 on is a good operating system I have been using it on 6 machines all upgrades for up to almost a year now. Love it.

On a new machine Windows 10 is a very OS and should not cause you the problems that you have heard about with upgrades.

I love Windows 10! It is a different tool bar, but very user friendly. The printer screen shows up when you click the top right icon beside the Skype icon. Just a sample of the difference.

Having worked on a lot of different systems since 1969, including IBM mainframes, one of the first IBM PCs, Apple IIs, a whole bunch of stuff nobody ever heard of, I discovered the Chromebook while working for Best Buy. I use it 99.99% of the time. I do use a laptop for Quicken and Turbo Tax, but in a few years I won't need either and won't need a PC. The Chromebook can't use Windows programs, but 99.99% of the time I do stuff on the web, FB, Email, Banking , etc.

The Chromebook, starts up in about 15 seconds, the operating system updates, if needed, when you start it up. Since it downs loads the system from the Google web site you never get a virus.

It comes with "Docs" which can read Word docs, "Sheets" for Excel and something for Powerpoint.

Your files are stored on Google Drive. If you lose your Chromebook, no problem, get a new one, sign in and your back where you were.

One problem, it only uses a wireless printer (or one that goes though a PC like I do, because I'm too cheap to buy a new one right now).

I go to the Villages Computer Club and hear story after story from people trying to deal with Windows, don't bother, get a Chromebook and make your life easier.

I did the upgrade from 7 to 10 with no issues at all. Now that I am comfortable with it I like it. Mostly I use my MacBook Air though.

I installed Chrome as a web browser which is much faster then the Microsoft Edge. How do we get Chromebook?

Upgraded from 7 to 10 on my desktop, gamer computer, too many problems so I took it off. That was when it first came out. Re -installed it this week with no problems. I do use a chromebook for all my computing and love it. Have kept the desktop as a reminder of the old computer days and windows.
