My Experience

Overall I am really enjoying Windows 10 and you shouldn't have problems running it.

Although, my Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 doesn't work with Windows 10. If you use KIS 2015 don't install Windows 10, even with compatibility mode it doesn't work.

New Browser Edge is really great, fast and easy to interact.

A Great Feature I haven't seen mentioned on Internet is the ability to Synchronize your data with you Windows Account.
Things like:
  • Theme
  • Internet Explorer Settings
  • Passwords
  • Language Preferences
  • Ease of Access
  • Other Windows Settings
  • Your APPs
  • etc..

That's just GREAT! 

What you do with Google Chrome to sync stuff, now you can do on Windows. 
Anytime You need something from your Phone or tablet and you are on Desktop, go to Mobile tabs and pick the last site You was Working/Reading on.
Now You have the Ability to sync your stuff between your Devices.



A good tip for you guys is to Always wait (more or less) 6 months before installing the next Operation System of Windows.

In general, after the public release bugs tend to be reported by users and fixed by Software Companies.
Note: This rule can be applied to any other Software. 

List of unsupported software and devices in Windows 10 I found so far:

  • Kaspersky Internet Security 2015
  • VPN - TMG and UAG (That's why my company still in Windows 7)
  • Undetected Bluetooth(L2CAP and Handsfree) and Wireless - Users reported Bluetooth and Wireless problems
  • Dell Computers - Dell hasn't updated drivers yet
