Like anything else, there will be a learning curved involved. Just getting used to navigation is the first thing. It's what frustrated me with Windows 8 and initially to a lesser extent with 10; in that I knew what I wanted to do, but was unable to figure out how to get the OS to let me actually do it. I still remember the mixed (Windows & Mac) open computer labs back at the Art Institute and watching the less tech oriented majors (fashion, culinary, industrial design) fumble around with not being able to get the Mac's to eject their discs (you needed to drag the disk icon representing the drive on top of the trashcan icon, which then transformed into an eject icon).

So yeah, wouldn't take too much getting used to this OS.

I periodically get upgrade messages on my Win 8 laptop but I always X out of them and have never had an upgrade begin on my machine. It think people who have their machine upgraded to Win 10 by surprise received such a message and clicked the accept button.

No, MS has changed the rules and now the x can mean yes. Sweet of them eh?
I just fixed this using GWX control panel.

I run Windows 10 on my Surface 3 and it syncs with my Lumia 920 (Windows Phone) which also syncs with my Microsoft Band. Windows 10 is much more user-friendly and desktop-friendly than 8 was. If you haven't tried it yet, I'd give it a shot.

Because my *Windows Surface* is so light and portable, I can! Just take it outside, lay on the hammock, and feel superior. Laugh out load

Yeah, I was talking about laptop/desktop models. Never used or even shopped for a tablet. I have a smartphone ... which had Win10 bundled.
