I'm really liking it but ran into a problem. Installation went great and it installed everything including my 5 year old Rocketfish sound card and my wireless printer. Its closer to 7 than 8. I installed steam and played games with no problems. Then this morning when I booted up I got 7 pop ups ans adware - the usual, video player is out of date, we need to optimize your system and my browser had been hijacked by something called Astromenda. These are the things that would happen when I left a Win2000 machine connected to the internet while installing the OS. I couldn't tell if 10 has a firewall but my router does.
