I have it installed in a virtual machine. Works great. Not so sure about drivers working though, because like I said, it is running in a VM. So far I like it. Seems to take the best of both Windows 7 & 8.

Three easy ways to speed up Windows 10

Are you running Windows 10 on a brand-new PC? Or did you upgrade one that's eight
years old? Maybe something in between?

Whatever your PC's origin story, there are ways to make it faster. And I don't mean
faster at crunching complex spreadsheets or processing mammoth Photoshop edits;
I'm talking about speedier startup, shutdown and Start-menu access. You know, the
things that matter day-to-day.

Give me five minutes, and I'll save you precious seconds. (Wait, that sounds like a bad
trade. But you'll get those minutes back, and then some.)

If I'm happy with 7 or 8, is there any reason to go to 10?

For the most part, Windows 10 has been positively received with no major issues / bugs so, I don't see any reason not to upgrade. As for Windows 8, are you really happy with it? I for one, did not care for Windows 8 so I upgraded my Windows 8 laptop (which I rarely used) to Windows 10 earlier this month. While I haven't used it much, I am having an issue with the new Windows Edge browser. In Chrome or IE, I could easily move around saved bookmarks in the Favorites bar, but for some reason I'm not able to move around bookmarks in the Windows Edge Favorites bar. There must be a way to move things in the Favorites bar, but I can't seem to figure it out :evil:
