    Windows 10?

    Anybody here going to get Windows 10 when it's released? I know some of you here have probably been running an official beta for a while. This is not a question necessarily about Revit + Win10, but Win10 in and of itself. I held off on Win8 and I was glad I did. The only OS I actually held of on, because it was too drastic a change for a Desktop environment.

    Anyways, thoughts/discussions? I'm thinking I'll install it immediately. I'm ready for a new interface to my comprutah. But it'll be home comprutah only, not work.

    Probably when I get enough $$ to spring for a new SSD drive... working on a video card and a new monitor right now...possibly a CPU fan upgrade too...

      I will have to wait and see. I have been debating loading it on my spare old laptop, since I need to reformat it anyway, but I am concerned with my old clients who occasionally need to use older versions of Revit and how it will function with Windows 10.

        I haven't had any issues other than the tech preview expiring and causing me to reinstall back to 8.1. W10 will be key for DX12, IDK though if Revit will support DX12 for a while.

          I am going to try it on a Parallels VM in the next week, with Parallels letting windows see the full retina resolution. Should be interesting how crappy Revit handles that. I'll be trying 2015 & 2016, but not going to bother going back any more. Revit 2014 was all smashed ass at high res.
          Gotta say, OS X and Parallels do a pretty good job of duping Windows into not sucking so much. But for this test Redmond is on their own. Cue the Jack Handy song, "Lowered Expectations!"

            I installed 8.1 quite some time ago, it was really no big deal to get used to and I LOVE how much faster my PC is with it and SSD hard drive. So I'll be interested to see 10.

              I concur, 3.5 sec to boot is EPIC!!

                Did they replace the Charms menu concept? That was to worst UI idea I have ever seen. But cautiously optimistic about Windows 10. Satya deftly seems to be sharp, and Steve Balmer was just a blundering dufus.

                  I'll be installing it as soon as it's released. Like others have said, Win 8.1 with a SSD is incredibly fast - I can only hope that Win 10 will improve on that. If things go south I'll just load the disk image prior to installing Windows 10.

                    Yep I have already reserved my copy on my Surface Pro 3. Why not? Windows 8.1 was great. Windows 10 with the way it changes the desktop from when it is plugged into the docking station to when it is in tablet mode will be great as well.

                    I also assume that they will release the Surface Pro 4 at the same time. Will be interesting to see the specs of that.
