After backing up my laptop, I decided to try out Windows 10. The installation was a little dark at times, nothing being displayed on screen. After successfully completing that I come away with a much better feeling than I did when I tried Windows 8.
The installation seemed to go well, the first login resulted in a black screen with a mouse cursor. After trying a few things I found, a hard reset brought up a working system. The VPN might be a little broken. When copying the Select Client over the VPN, the transfer rates dropped to zero. To fix it, pausing the copy in Windows 10 and resetting the VPN and resuming the copy got it going. That I found a bit weird, but I liked the pause and resume on a copy.
