After a lot of effort, I was finally able to get windows 10 installed on my windows 8.1 computer. All the research I did told me that this machine is compatible with windows 10 but windows did not agree. When the icon in the taskbar came up asking me to reserve windows 10 it allowed me to do it. But when I checked back it told me it was not compatible with my machine.
So I went ahead and downloaded the windows 10 install image, burned it to DVD, and ran the installer on the machine. Everything seems to work perfectly.
It's way too early do you know for sure but so far I'm really liking it. Windows 10 is much more Macintosh like. Kind of a cross between windows, the Mac, and an iPad. I think there's a lot of potential here for Microsoft. It'll take me a week or so to play with all the features and do my testing but so far I'm giving it a thumbs up.
