I would like to know what happens with my activation codes e.g.

Fritz GUI, Fritz engines, Chessbase 13
or
for Shredder, Hiarcs, Houdini, Junior....

If anyone has experiences (e.g. with the preview version or tomorrow with regular update) :
it would be nice to read here.

I will be formatting from 8.1 to the full version of windows 10.
I will reload all and then clean up the OS.
I have my egtb on separate ssd.
My OS ssd is pcie, very fast for bench but doesn't help chess.

I will wait to see if everything is OK for other users.

Smart move. If I do decide to upgrade, I'll wait a few months so I'm not one of the guinea pigs.

I'll update immediately.

Opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the CCRL Group.

Not really interested on the update. My win 7 is very stable.

No. It's total garbage. It's obvious with this release that Microsoft will never make another desktop OS I want.

They don't listen, it will be a disaster. 1B in 3 years? Hahaha.

Too cautious. I'm happy enough with Windows 7. Quite a few people I know
are still complaining about Windows 8

I'm on the fence. The experts that I've listened to say that it's a pretty good upgrade. They are pushing it out the door too quickly, hence the reason to not be in a hurry to install it. The biggest negative about it is that you won't be able to refuse updates to Windows 10. I'm also a little concerned about all of my programs still running.
