BLS,

Interesting timing. I've been BETA testing it for the last day and it seems pretty good so far. It seems faster but that could be because I installed it on a new SSD. So that could be the reason as the SSD I have Win 7 on isn't all that good.

Have only had a few minor problems of no consequence so far. The picture viewer is a bit weird but need to play with it a bit more. Seems a bit overly complicated and could be simplified. Haven't played with the new Mail app much but, so far, can't say as I like it much. Too simplistic but I need to play more with it.

Install wasn't much of a problem. Had to go out and get a 32 Gb thumb drive but it was only about $15! Making it bootable was no big deal. Install was a bit confusing as it reinstalled at the first reboot and wanted to on the third. But, being the suspicious sort, I shut down, pulled the thumb drive and restarted. Seemed to work fine.

Only one app (Zone Alarm) would not install. Win 10 said it was incompatible. So I installed Comodo but not sure how well its working so far. Malwarebytes went in just fine.

So far, it seems pretty good. If you decide to try it the only real suggestion I would make is to go out and get a new SSD and stick it on that. That way, if you don't like it, you can easily go back to your previous OS. If anything of interest shows up I'll let you know.
