the free upgrade is available until july 29, 2016 (non-enterprise version entitled for upgrade)
if it's slow, what does it have for hardware (cpu/memory)?
Prasadh BaapaatWeb Designer & DeveloperCommented:
I am happy with my upgrade :) I feel my machine is a bit faster now... maybe its just a false feeling because I like the look and feel of win 10.

about the laptop... maybe it has older config hardware with low CPU speed and less RAM

Also try IE 11. I have that running on my Windows 10 machine and it is very fast.

What the min operating system?
Win 7 or 8 yes?
Vista no?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Currently, half or more of operating systems are Windows 7. Windows 10 is new and is at about 5 %. But I think you will see Windows 10 gradually overtake Windows 8 / 8.1 and then the two top will be Windows 7 and 10. Vista is nearly gone.

Windows 10 works just fine (fast and efficient) and you can get it until next July (one year from introduction).
