Question Windows ?

I have windows 8.1
Just had notification for windows 10
Does anyone have it? Would you recommend that I install it?

I am using Shell on my desktop as; I do not like the metro touch screen.

Thank in advance,

Cool Re: Windows ?

Windows 8.1 is only available in Beta form at present. You can download it etc but I would await the Official release which should have all the bugs (well, most of them) ironed out.

If you have been asked to be a Beta tester then install it as a separate operating system - keep your present 8.1.

Oh Gem, I am now confused. I have 8.1 on the system, now windows 10 is in the updates from Microsoft. Should I uninstall the 8.1 That I now have on my comp?
Not sure of these messages from Microsoft.

I think Windows 8.1 is out there, and as stable as any other windoze, not Beta.

W10 has been kicking around in Beta form for a while - though not with me. The first full-but-probably-buggy release of that will hit the PCs toward the end of July I think.

Exclamation Re: Windows ?

Sorry Twinkle, I obviously had a little too much of the french wine - I should have said:

"Windows 10 is only available in Beta form at present. You can download it etc but I would await the Official release which should have all the bugs (well, most of them) ironed out.

."

Yes, I suspect that email may NOT be from Microsoft!
