I currently use Windows 8 and I was wondering whether Windows 10 was worth the upgrade?

 

Besides being able to get the latest apps from the Windows store, what incentives are there to upgrade?

 

Does Windows 10 save memory & PC usage or will it use more system resources?

Thats really only a decision you can make. As many members as we have, are potentially the number of opinions that you'll be offered. From very pro to very negative. You'll need to do your research and then decide if your particular situation fits the template and time frame for upgrading. Keeping in mind there is a finite time frame to upgrade for free.

You should upgrade to Windows 8.1 and try that and see if you like that. After that you should try Windows 10.

Most definitely. Windows 10 seems to be running pretty smooth for me but not so much for other people I can see. Just give it a try. :)

Worth the upgrade indeed! The experience is better than upgrading from Vista to 7.

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a few days ago and guess I was one of the lucky ones as the change over went relatively smooth.

 

Having a small problem getting Lastpass to work as it did before the change but it is due to Edge not being compatible currently with Lastpass.

I'm currently using LastPass on Google Chrome. When I reinstalled it, Edge wasn't in the list of supported browsers.

I don't think so. Lots of reports I've read about updating to Windows 10 and most of their PC's shut down during installation. Lots of files are missing and they can't use their device just like before. When in doubt, then better don't try.

Wasn't for me, worked ok for 6 days, some glitches but nothing major. Yesterdays update wouldn't work, got a blue screen saying computer was going to restart, it didn't, powered off, tried again, tried repair nothing would work, just a blue screen showing, so went back to W7. These auto updates are going to be a big problem I tell ya.
