    To everybody who's tried and failed to install Windows 10: think yourself lucky. I "upgraded" my laptop from Windows 8.1. and after hours of messing around with it, getting more and more frustrated, I'm actually contemplating installing Windows 8 back on the laptop. Half the apps don't work because I don't have permission to write to files in my home directory, it's slow, Edge is worse than IE, and it even disabled my virus scanner (Kaspersky). No way will I contemplate "upgrading" Windows 7 on my desktop PC, the one I use for FSX.

    I upgraded my Win8.1 to Win10 using the MediaCreationToolx64.exe tool available from Microsoft. It was straightforward, although it did take a long time... 5 hours from clicking on the MediaCreationToolx64 tool, to seeing the Win10 desktop. I did have a lot of software already installed, so that's probably why my upgrade took so long, when others have seen it complete in 40 minutes.
