[CQ-Contest] Win 10

I'm running Win10 beta in a VM. If you're on Win 8.x it's worth doing, especially if you're on a desktop. If you're on Win 7, I'd stay with it if you like the 7 look and feel (which I do). N1MM Logger Plus is the only legacy ham application I have working and it's just fine. It installed easily, just as it does under Win 7, Win 8 and Win 8.1.  I only have a few applications running under 10 and not a single problem in 2 months of testing.

MicroSoft Win 10 will be a free upgrade from Win 7 or 8.1.  

Any beta testers out there who have tried it?

How do legacy apps behave?  Any gotchas?
