Download is not the same as install / use
Many may have downloaded Win 10, but never installed it. Drawing conclusions based on the number of downloads needs to be done carefully. All it shows that there is some interest and that there was nothing lost by downloading....and that's about all this bit of information can tell us.

Re: Looking Back...
In terms of personal use, I have windows 7; I have never had any major problems.  I'm concern that if I upgrade to other version some of my older problem won't be able to work as before.  what would be the advantage for consumers for getting Windows 10, may be for  business yes.

Re: Looking Back...
"After hearing feedback from business users, the company has decided it will be more upfront in sharing the details of Windows 10 updates. Officials are currently in the process of deciding the best way to convey this information to businesses, said Alkove."

Simple answer that doesn't require a great deal of thinking or six months of meetings: Go back to what was done correctly with previous client and server operating systems (Windows XP/7 and Windows 2003/2008 Servers).

Re: Looking Back...
I share the same opinion with you. I downloaded Windows 10 on one of my laptops but did not find it very powerful/worth of the upgrade effort. Personally I chose to stay on Windows 7 for the rest of my PCs at this moment...

Looking Back...
I think "Free" is the keyword here. I do not recall the same being true when Windows 7 and 8 were first released. I have a strong feeling that many people downloaded Windows 10 because it was a free download and the hype had been mostly positive. I know that was the reason I decided to move from Windows 7 to 10.

After working with it for a month now, I have regrets. When I moved from XP to Windows 7, I thought, "Wow! This is definitely an improvement. I didn't feel that way after installing Windows 10. I think this version should just have been called Windows 8.2. I find the look of the interface to be bland and many of the customizable settings have been removed (or at least buried.) I cannot stand the auto-update feature... an update automatically rebooted my system while I was restoring content from a backup.

Anyway, I think MS had it right with Windows 7.
