Does windows 10 include any significant performance boosts?

Most of the current "Virtual Desktop", I think will be stupid since VirtualBox, Virtual PC etc are already out.

Well, it runs much better than Window 8.1 in my VMs on the same specs.

I think that's more wishful thinking than actual fact since windows 8 was already pretty optimized.
I've installed it on a separate partition on the same drive as Windows 8.1. I really find no speed difference between
the two OS.
That said, I haven't run any tests to confirm or deny that perception.
To me those types of tests really mean very little.
Just like my AV it's actual real world usage that determines what I think of the product. :)

My 64bit win10 won't accept Avast - campatability issue.
When will this be resolved ?
Have others experienced it ?

avast! at this point does not support this new and still in development OS.
Patience. avast! will work in Windows 10 when it gets closer to being officially released.
Right now Windows 10 is still a Preview Release. Not even in beta stage.
If you're running Windows 10 then your default protection is provided by Microsoft Defender.
There are some other AV's that work on Windows 10. More information available at:

Hi Bob
Snip> "There are some other AV's that work on Windows 10"

Bob, my concern is 'How effective' or 'reliable' would any 3rd. party AV be in an OS who's code will be constantly changing

Edit: Yes, and I also think this will be/is a very good Topic  ;)

It should be just as effective as it was in Windows 8.1 since Windows 10 basically uses the same OS with some modifications.
Can't wait till avast! will be among those that can be installed on Windows 10. Right now, it's Windows Defender. I just can't bring myself to installing a competitors product.

I noticed a massive increase like Steven, Bob.

My Virtual Machine takes only a few seconds to boot up. Non-SSD, 32GB of HDD Space + 4GB of RAM... Windows 8.1 for me took the same time on an SSD (32GB) w/ 16GB's of RAM.

Main difference being, 8.1 (My first OS) took the same time too boot on my SSD, and 4times as much ram as Windows 10 does on VirtualBox.

I will be Dual Booting my system within the next 8 hours. I already have EUFI and all that jazz. It'll be interesting to see whether or not my system will co-operate. I've not received conformation that Windows 10, my BIOS and GPU will support Win 10. If not, well, Intel Adapter is what I'll be using -_-
