Now the questions is do you want to upgrade now?

I have been using Windows 10 preview since it was open to the public and got the latest update over the weekend.  Honestly i do not believe it is ready for consumer consumption, it is a great Operating System (OS) but still needs some more tweaking for it to be a perfect OS.
