Windows 10 Pro - upgrade license is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We took advantage of the free upgrade before implementing AD DS and learned to switch to deployment rings. After that it has been very stable overall and some of the more recent features (OneDrive Files on demand and the timeline) have been very well received by our users.I like the pace of updates better than the old SP model, now that the rings take the risk out of the equation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have the upmost confidence in Windows but windows 10 takes it a step further. Brilliant ease of access that gets overlooked so much, amazing interoperability including support for all sorts of intricate functions, and the scale of technicality makes it easy to use and assist for people of all calibres.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Windows 10, The aesthetics are really nice and the functionality of the product is very good. Nice to be able to link my Xbox to my PC which is a bonus. Sure there are little gripes after some updates (Mainly the big updates e.g 1709) but after some researching the issues always tend to go either by me fixing them or by an update being deployed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Users can use Miracast to the Surface Hub for meetings and client walkthroughs Valuable FeaturesMost of the best Windows 10 features are centered around getting you where you want to go faster. The new right-click menu is fantastic from an IT perspective. It gives access to many commonly used tools, like Device Manager, Computer Management, PowerShell, Task Manager and Programs and Features, right from the desktop. The new Task Manager is also much more fully featured and informative.The overall speed of Windows 10 is fantastic as well. It boots quickly, shuts down quickly, and the overall use is snappy and responsive.Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise come with fully featured Hyper-V ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/hyper-v ). Desktop admins can create VMs for testing purposes without the need for extra machines.Improvements to My OrganizationUsers can use Miracast to the Surface Hub, which is great for meetings and client walkthroughs.Room for ImprovementThe settings and control panel are oddly disjointed. Things that show up in the Control Panel do not always show up in Settings and vice-versa. It is a pain to remember what is where.Use of SolutionWe have used this nine months in production.Deployment IssuesThere is also a tremendous amount of bloatware on Windows 10. Without performing offline maintenance on the image, you have to clean up quite a bit of stray apps and consumer level services to get it to be usable in a corporate environment.Stability IssuesOur version of Trend caused Windows 10 to freeze unexpectedly at random times. Only after Trend released a compatible version did the issues subside and the OS become stable.Scalability IssuesWe use SCCM ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/sccm ), so scalability is no issue, once the imaging process was ironed out.Customer Service and Technical SupportWe primarily use online forums and communities unless you want to pay Microsoft to open a support case. It does benefit from being the most popular OS on the planet, as there is amble advice out there from third parties.Previous SolutionsWe used Windows 7 and are migrating to be ahead of the support EOL.Initial SetupIt takes a few iterations of installing Windows 10 to get everything tweaked to a place of having a smooth imaging and configuration process. Little things like registry tweaks, GPO tweaks, take time to iron out. Having an imaging solution is a must to scale in any way.Implementation TeamWe implemented it in-house. I did the implementation.Pricing, Setup Cost and LicensingGet a KMS server and a volume license if you are a medium sized business. Being able to wipe and re-image is crucial for long term stability of your fleet. Having a Multiple Activation Key (MAK) makes it so every new activation counts against your total.Work with a reseller like CDW ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/cdw-communications-outsourcing ) to get licensing costs that fit your needs, as Microsoft's model is confusing.Other Solutions ConsideredWe did not evaluate other options. We need to use Windows to support our finance applications.Other AdviceWindows 10 is the best parts of Windows 8 and Windows 7 rolled into one. Windows 8 started a lot of features and functions that shine here in Windows 10, while the criticism has allowed Microsoft to work at user experience more for this iteration. There is a bit too much bloatware by default, and some strange decisions about settings aside, it is a great OS that should only get better with time.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We adopted Windows 10 Pro during the free upgrade window for one client. The upgrade itself went smooth. Since inception, I have not had many problems related to Windows 10 across the network. The few I have had have been related to driver compatibility. A simple install of the proper driver resolved most issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used to be a skeptic about Windows 10 especially the privacy issues with the Wifi password sharing and all. But after using it as my main OS at work, it had changed my mind about it. The UI is smooth and everything seems to just work. I actually thinking of upgrading my PCs at home to Windows 10 now
