Quick and flawless upgrade or a different kind?

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member Drew1903 began a jaunty new thread this week in the Windows 10 forum, reporting his good experience upgrading from Win8.1 to Windows 10.

And he was pretty certain he wasn’t alone in happy circumstances; he said that he’d heard “there were 63 million upgrades in 72 hours, averaging 250 installs per second — 14 million on the first day.”

Still, you don’t have to leave this thread to read about different Win10 upgrade experiences. The Windows 10 forum in general is a busy Internet destination with a lot of Windows 10 conversations going on. You ought to drop in.
