    Hi, as the title goes, i have Win 8.1 running with no issues in Bootcamp and got the "free upgrade to Windows 10" popup. Should i pull the trigger or not? What are your experiences, esp. gaming-wise on Late 15 iMacs? Should i stay with 8.1 or go for 10?

    win10 works fine for me. If you don't have any problems then there's no reason to really update. A few years from now when dx12 is actually in games then sure it'll be worth it but if you consider the amount of spying and tracking done in win 10, might not be worth it to ya.

    Then again windows 8 was universally despised by many people. But if YOU don't have any problem with it, there's not much real reason to change it. If it ain't broke, don't change it right?
