    Yes. I upgraded my Win8.1 system to Win10 and did not need to reinstall Vegas, it just works. I did install the latest AMD driver, and Realtek sound drivers. The audio I maybe did not need to do, since it was the same driver version as under 8.1. My system is fairly complex with Hyper-V running 2 VMs in the background, SQL, IIS, network monitoring software, and software RAID 1 across 8 HDD. All the extras migrated without having to reconfigure them.

    I did a clean install and had to reinstall everything. All is working perfectly!

    Ok thanks guys , I have now sorted my other problem out. I will go ahead with the upgrade later, I have two pc’s telling me that my reserved copy of Windows 10 is ready for updating..

    I have an old Epson printer attached to one of them and as far as I can see there are no drivers for it for Windows 8 or Windows 10, so I think my grand kids are going to get another cast off and I will get a new one…

    Upgrading a PC OS version is always scary. They all have new bugs to deal with. Unless you are a PC guru and have plenty of time to “tweak” everything, I hold off as long as I can. In some cases I’ve had to reinstall every program and plug-in and basically start from scratch. When I bought my iMac I was amazed how fast and easy it was to move from PCland to Macland.

    If you can tell me what advantages WIN 10 have over WIN 7 as far as video production and SVP13, tell me now.

    There is no advantage where video production is concerned! just if one wants
    to experience a new interface with a few new features and the OS is stable
    and fast, what harm then to do it? Windows 8 was a mess, Windows 10 isn’t.

    Would you still be using Windows 2000 now, even if all the
    software on it was still efficient and fast and Windows 7 wasn’t any
    faster? Im sure the answer would be no.

    Personally, my machine is here to work. New experiences, such as hardware like printers which no longer work, are definitely not on my bucket list. There have to be solid benefits before I spend the time and money to upgrade a machine. I definitely do not need the problems that come when the OS is brand new. I let the pioneers take the arrows in the back, and wait for things to settle down.

    Lets see…hmm. There have not been any changes to Windows since 7, unless you consider these as changes:

    Improved memory architecture:

    Windows 7
    •Starter: 8GB
    •Home Basic: 8GB
    •Home Premium: 16GB
    •Professional: 192GB
    •Enterprise: 192GB
    •Ultimate: 192GB

    Windows 8 & 10
    • Windows 8 – 128GB
    • Windows 8 Professional – 512GB
    • Windows 8 Enterprise – 512GB

    Lighter weight OS overall that boots faster, much faster. On my configuration, once my system clears Bios checking, its only like 10 seconds to desktop. Basic OS load memory utilization actually went down on Win8.

    Windows 8&10 include Hyper-V – win8,10,Server 2012 support dynamic memory support, OS like Unbuntu do not support dynamic memory.

    Windows 10 supports DX12

    Chrome, Firefox, and Edge all perform faster in 10.

    Integrated AV

    Improved device support, and improved OS update technology.

    I will say that my printer from 2000 no longer auto recognized, and I needed to load an HP driver that was compatible manually. Not sure that is an HP or MS issue though. HP makes ****** products.

    That’s an HP problem.
    I’ve continuously recommend upgrading to Windows 10 if one can. It’s worth
    it, good shortlisting Aaron.
