I'm going to piggy-back on MarkSheppard here, when it comes to Microsoft OS, I wait until businesses install it, when they adopt it, then I take serious notice. The Exchange Server 2013 is cool from what I hear. Back to OS's, I loved Windows NT-5, it was strong. I took awhile to migrate to 7, by-passed Vista, didn't bite on 8, and now am doing my wait-and-see on 10. If they have a professional or enterprise edition I'm interested.

My two cents worth.

Fallout Re: Windows 10 Status and yes there'll be no Win 9.

Last week I decided that there are certain aspects I don't really care for in 8.1 so with that said, I've reserved my free upgrade to Win 10 for the 29 July release date. My thinking is Win 10 can't be that much worse (Though I know it can.) so, I'll be sure to have have started one of my two current campaigns in 8.1 which has been running both without any issues since converted from XP. If there are any specific issues you want me to look for outside of normal game play just let me know. In fact I think I'll start both as one takes place in the mid 80's and the other is actually in "real time".

Regards,
Pat

All I can say is let us know if anything doesn't work at least as well as it does in win8.1 and if you think something works better let everyone know what it does better. I'm going to be taking the plunge as well

Thanks to all those brave souls who are willing to try this out for us!

(I'm sticking to my tried and tested Win 7 for a good few months yet)

Well a novice and an expert can't ask for a better pairing. In deference to the great Lord Nelson, hopefully we'll not have made a mistake and end up as cannon fodder.

Pat

I installed Windows 10 over my old Windows 7. So far the only program not working is winSPMBT. I have upgraded to the most recent version of winSPMBT. It fails to open under Windows 10.

Nevermind it works in windowed mode, but not full screen.

Fallout Re: Windows 10 Status and yes there'll be no Win 9.

Based on the the last two posts, verified one of my current campaigns is working in full screen mode with 8.1. However what's missing is my Win 10. Found a handful of news articles from mid May until about a week before Win 10 release. It seems a "download hierarchy" is in place for the free download to...1) The 5 million beta testers. 2) Multiple OS package buyers. 3) Current OS operating status from 8.1 > 8.0 > 7.0 within that grouping the downloads will be conducted in what MS has dubbed as "waves" to everyone else. In short I haven't gotten my yet. So I'm stuck for now.

Regards,
Pat

Yes, in Windows 7, on my computer, winSPMBT worked in full screen.
