Windows 10 has slightly improvements but nothing you really need to have. There is no killer argument why you should install it now and you still have 1 year to think about. It's not a bad idea to take this time but it also doesn't hurt if you upgrade yet.

What I don't like are the privacy settings most of them belong to mobile devices like 'access to your calender' and they are all hardly to find. Even when you disable Cortana its still running in background and if you close the task it reopens automatically. I guess soon there will be more guides and tutorials around the internet to disable unwanted stuff completely.

I would call this an outrageous breach of privacy, I want an OS who do as I ask not a spy peeking into my emails and contacts/friends list(s) and for what purpose "big brother"?

Money is power > power make law > law is money

I think most of the privacy options belong to the Windows 10 Apps and both were designed for mobile devices. Of course normal apps may spy as they already did on Windows 7. But on windows phone and android and iOS you can define which app reads your contacts and calender and as Windows 10 is the same OS for mobile devices it shows the same settings.

So the question is: Do they really spy more or do they just ask for your permission now (which seems to belong only to these metro alias windows 10 apps)? It still leaves a bad taste.

If you like to have someone else decide what's wrong or right and what you might do with YOUR computer and digital property ... well, go ahead.

That and my fam do not agree with. So Win 10 will be left alone until I really need DX12.
