I am a fan of the New Windows 10 so far had a few minor glitches with Nvidia Graphics card but after getting the proper Graphics card driver installed Windows 10 runs great..  Also in the Computer world i use Virtual box all the time to put my Linux distros in.. I personally like and prefer Xubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu Studio 14.04 LTS. I also have been known to play around in Kali Linux and centos..
