    I'm sure it will work without significant problems :)
    You have to remember it's a sanctuary of conservatives here :))

    I tested it on a CF30 and it ran fine...
    I don't own a w8 and 95% of the board members here don't either...We mostly work with the fully rugged or semi rugged models..We welcome discussion about all models, but our answers are not as in depth or as fast on the "other" models...
    I thought it was an ok operating system...I'm not going out and buy it to replace Win7 anytime soon though.

    ok
    i have an empty wd hdd with 160 gb
    so i will test the technical preview in 2 ways
    first way upgrading my with all drivers working win 7 64 bit with all the programms and drivers
    second way a clean install to watch what drivers are missing
    i will post the results here

    as i could read win 10 is the first year for all win 7 and win 8.x users for free
    so you don t have to buy it

    on my lenovo t61 win 10 in clean install runs out of the box

    hope this is with my cf w8 the same

    the only strange hardware is my umts card from novatel

    ok
    upgrade from win 7 to win 10 no problem
    seems that everything works fine
    no unidentified hardware
    only gps on my novatel card is grey (maybe i have to do the registry hack again)
    i have done the following things
    download the technical preview and made a bootable usb stick
    start win 7 choose setup from the usb stick
    made my cross @ keep all my apps and settings
    and let run the install

    so it looks now

    seems there is no problem with any hardeware or software
    my office 2000 runs as well as ableton 5


    i am still unhappy with the startmenu and tried to install classic shell, but this is blocked

    you can install it just change the name from classsic shell exe to cs or any other word

    here with my favorite dock rocket dock and 2. picture with classic shell installed

    what doesnt work is changing the brightness
    it is the same issue like in win 7
    you can change, but it goes back to the old settings

    the booting time from turning on to be able to start using the computer is about 2 1/2 minutes
    may be it is because of all the rubbish i have on the computer or it depends on the updates win 10 is downloading and installing
    there are lots of windows rubbish apps in the background working connecting to the internet i tried to uninstall most of them but didn t succeed

    the failure with the touchtools endet by stopping it in the autostart

    another pic with the taskmanager
    two windows of chrome opened with 30 tabs open
    and vlc player (portable) opened with playing a video
    lots of software is as portable versions on the computer

    the next is to try a clean install and post it

    ok here my first review with win 10 technical preview clean install
    it seems most works fine instead of the novatel card (i guess)
    i was hard to tell win 10 that i want to have german language but us international keyboard lay out
    but it was solvable

    here are some screenshots
    and sorry for german screenshot but i am german :D
    my keyboard layout is english us international so i had some problems to keep it

    i have problems with the new software here
    so
    umts doesn t work on clean install seems you need drivers ( with the upgrade there wasn t a problem)

    boot time is very fast seems to boot in 60 seconds to be able to work
    lots of rubbih apps have been installed you have to get rid of them manually
    i didn t installed any softwre now so i think there is no real comparison possible

    so i think most things works with a clean install out of the box
    exception is in my opinion the novatel umkts card
    while doining the upgrade from win 7 every software/is if it is possible overtaken but the system is much more slower than clean install
    but may be ther will exist future win 10 drivers thes problen could be solved easily

    what didn t work (software) was paragon manager 11
    whether in win 7 nor in win 10 it was to be activatet
    so best easy/cheapest was is to download the newest software and do your backup on an intern partition or an extern folder on an extern harddisk
    @ the first moment everything seems to work fine with the now configuration

    to add to the mix ...
    i am testing W10 , and i installed "classic shell" (www.classicshell.net) ... they do have a W10 beta flavor (the regular one will not load) .
    this allows a *real* desktop to be had instead of that gui that looks like it was designed by fisher-price .
