I'll wait until they iron out all the bugs in Win 10. We have a year to get it for free.  :)

From what i´ve seen from the posts on The Windows Club-Forum, the released W10 looks yet another beta-version...
But i might install and test it anyway.
I´ll probably never use W10,  but i might use the server-version (WS2016) when it´s released.

I'm going to wait to see how things pan out. 
I have Windows 8.1 Home x64... as such I would be allowed to upgrade to Win10 Home, which would not allow me to control Windows Updates, they way I want.
I currently have WU notify me of updates but I pick those I want to install.  The new settings in Win10 would not allow me to have that option.  This, together with the idea that MS will include driver updates as important updates, with no control, forcing me to update, could be big trouble. 

Not to mention all the privacy (or lack of) settings that are set by default in Win10.
I have a year, so I'll see what happens in that time.

For now, I'm keeping Windows 7 on my old laptop, mainly because it just makes it easier when creating instructions to help someone with Windows 7.  I have an HP Stream 7 that has "reserved" Window 10 and is still waiting in the queue.  However, I have been using Windows 10 on a separate partition on my desktop since the first build. 

The "privacy" concerns are easily overcome.  I don't use Cortana on my Windows phone and I don't use it on my computer.  I have no need to tell her to add a meeting to my calendar or find directions to some place.  It is easy to disable access to location, contacts, messaging, etc. via the Settings > Privacy options.

Regarding driver updates:  Although Windows 7 doesn't have the option to "Automatically get device app and info provided by device manufacturer", the same options are available in Windows 10 as in Windows 7 and Windows 8.x.  Based on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2500967, to change the driver update setting: Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers > right-click PC > select Device Installation Settings > Toggle "Never install driver software from Windows Update & check "Automatically get device app and info provided by device manufacturer.

I decided to stay with Win 8.1 Pro media on my main system, and one Win 7on my laptop. My old rebuilt 10 year laptop is running Windows10 preview.

The rest of the family are either 8.1 Home or pro and Win 7. I actually rolled a couple back, just going to wait it out for awhile. One Win 7 Pro tablet, with Win 10 wasn't anywhere as good as the Win 7 and manufacture software. It destroyed the tablet design.

Been running Windows 10 on my desktop and laptop for about 2-3 weeks now. The only major issue I had is that I had to clean install Windows 8.1 on my desktop computer and unplug my two 1TB WD Black HDDs in order to upgrade to Windows 10. After that, it took a few reboots for my NVIDIA GTX 670 drivers to correctly install and that was it. I've had no other major issues with Windows 10 so far, except VirtualBox that stopped working after last week's Patch Tuesday, but the latest test build of VirtualBox fixed that issue.

So far I like it. Using the Ctrl key shortcut in the command prompt is a true blessing, so is the return of the Start Menu (press Win Key and enter any program to launch them). I feel like the response time when I browse using the Windows Explorer, and right-click on taskbar icons is a bit slower than back on Windows 7 and 8.1 however. Just like a 0.5 second of delay, but it's enough for me to notice it.

I have it on my laptop for the past couple of days. No problems and not really impressed as yet.
