Unless you've been slumming it with XP and ancient components, pretty much everything will either be compatible or will otherwise have compatible drivers available for download.

I'm running the preview as a dualboot and it's slowly looking nicer--other than the icons.



Thankfully, they'll likely be changed in later releases. The things I'm enjoying the most are the proper tiling and the slicker UI. I'd add the start menu to that, but it sort of took a step backwards while Microsoft finalise its Continuum functionality. As a whole, it looks like the whole OS is going to look a lot more sexy and current by release, or at least better at all. It's supposed to release during June, so here's hoping that progress is rapid from build to build.

A new build is most likely going to be released later this week, could even be today if we're lucky
I actually think the folder icons are one of the better ones, the trash bin and drive icons that were leaked some time ago look far worse in comparsion.. ugh.
I hope they're going to unify the new context menus, title bar, etc. with the next build and also bring back some of the functionality of the start menu

While we're at it, can't we make this a "let's talk Windows 10 TP" thread" for the few people that actually do support what Microsoft is doing?

I can say that I definitely like the general concept of the icons. However, they're a) a touch garish for me and b) too childish for me a the moment. I really liked the initial icons, so I'm hoping against hope that there's a comprehensive pack of them in the final version.

The next build doesn't appear to be changing much, but if it's got the new Start codebase and general polish, then I'll be quite happy.

We should make this a thread for general chatter though--even though I made one a while ago, this one seems to be getting some buzz. It'd be great for linking articles and such.

Even then, unless literally everything you run is stuck in 2003, you'd be unlikely to have compatibility issues and you wouldn't be running on an OS with hacked-together security fixes. 7's generally solid enough, but 10's gonna be mega-efficient. 8 already was and users have already said that 10's got performance improvements out the wazoo.

I think the real question here is, where did the search bar in the start menu go ?

It'll be replaced with a Bing Bar in the near future.

How do you run osu! on Win10 if peppy himself doesn't know Win10? Only few apps are prepared for Win10, including VLC

4GB RAM
Install VirtualBox to try Win10 on the virtual machine? Maybe 8GB RAM will help. Try 4GB?

Will win 10 have the aero thingy left or will it finally be possible to use windowed mode? xD (for those who don't know win 8 forces aero to be on so you will have input lag in windowed games)

I have 2GB RAM

I installed a Technical Preview, installed framework 3.5 and run osu! but I can't play any beatmaps.
No music is playing either...

I do plan to grab that free upgrade at some point when Win 10 is released, getting the majority of my files back is a bit of a hassle though.
