Pros: I tried the free upgrade to windows 10 and was disappointed so I reverted back to windows 7. The layout is wonderful and it's very compatible with any software, drivers, and hardware I have attempted to use. Very user friendly and never had a blue screen of death which is nice.
Cons: none, it's a great operating system.

Cons: The OEM version nearly cost me a another Windows 10 copy just to get a new key - until I found the existing key under a microscopic grey scratch-off rectangle in the product label. User friendly? It cannot get worse.

Cons: - Can't list any pros or cons yet fully since I just installed it but so far it just has a lot of invasive data collecting options.
Other Thoughts: I really wished they had stated that you couldn't use your own code on multiple PCs in your household. I needed to reformat some computers at home and update their OS only to find out I can only use one computer at a time. Worst of all it wasn't even used on my computer, it was used on my family member's computer first so now my computer won't be activated.

You already know what you're getting before you pay for it.
Pros: - 10 is a huge leap over 8 and fixes what was wrong with 8.1. - New and refreshed UI from the old school Windows 7 or earlier models - Fixes UI flaws of Windows 8. - Benchmarks have shown 10 to be faster than 7 and 8.1 in many categories... and in the categories 10 lagged behind, it was not by much.
Cons: - Microsoft decided to force some bloatware that requires irritatingly and tedious methods to remove and/or prevent from starting.. but hasn't Microsoft always done this? (Perhaps not to this level) Besides, if you use some of the applications, does it matter? - The privacy issue... but most of this can supposedly be closed up....
Other Thoughts: I have and will continue to recommend Windows 10 to friends, family, and when I build rigs for others. Windows 10 is more secure than Windows 7 and has a longer E.O.L.
Many reviews complain about the price and say it should be this or should be that... $99 or $139 (Home/Pro)... Really? How many PC games or even consoles games are almost the same price? How many professional applications start at 10x the cost of Windows 10 Pro?
Bottom line, Windows 10 is a great operating system, if you are considering making the jump or not. DO IT. Make sure you do a clean install. If the price is too much for you or you are concerned with the privacy issue, go download Ubuntu, it's a free operating system and open source. Then, come back when you do not like it and buy Windows 10.
